Hey everyone， it’；s Terra from Mama Says Sew!
Are you in search of a quick project for St Patrick’；s Day？ Try this easy shamrock leggings tutorial! All you need is some knit fabric and some felt and you can whip up a pair before the holiday.
The little shamrock applique is a fun addition to a basic pair of leggings.
I think knee patches are perfect for little ones! They spend so much time on their knees， both playing and moving， so it’；s a great way to add a little extra durability to their pants. It would be great for older boys too (my son goes through jeans like nobody’；s business)pillow cases solid， but I don’；t think I could put these on my son. He’；s a little old for this style unfortunately!

First， cut out the leggings. You can use a pattern you already have， or draft your own using this tutorial.
Fold them in half， with the front half on top of the back.
Lay your shamrock pattern piece on top of the legging to mark where you want it to go. If you’；ve made your own pattern， it should be fairly simple to determine where the knee is， because it will be more worn on the original leggings. Make sure to account for seam allowances when positioning your shamrock.
Cut out and position your felt shamrock on the knee of the legging.
Repeat for the other leg. Make sure they’；re both at the same level.
Sew around the shamrock. If you use felt， you’；ll have to line dry， otherwise the knee patch will go all wonky. You could also use a different fabric-I just like the look of felt.
Once both shamrocks are sewn on， you should have two leggings pieces like this：
Then just sew them up as you would any other pair of leggings.
Tada! Some super cute， easy shamrock leggings for the holiday! You could do other shapes as well! I think a rainbow would be adorable， although that would take more work.

VASTU TIPS ABOUT COLORS1. Orange for PowerOrange symbolizes spirituality and power. So, brighter shades of orange are the good choice for bedroom accents rather than wall colors. As orange color invokes positive feelings and happiness, this is always a suitable shade for bedroom use. 2. Yellow for WisdomYellows especially in gold tones work very well in an Indian bedroom. Yellow not only stands for patience and wisdom but also symbolizes sunlight. 3. Pink for JoyPink is a suitable color for bedroom walls. As the color symbolizes joy and happiness, any shade of pink is suitable for master bedrooms. According to Vastu, pink is the right color for South or Southwest facing bedrooms.4. Purple for FaithFuschia or bold purple, works well for fabric accents in a bedroom. The color purple generally represents trust, respect and faith. You can use it in curtains, bedspreads and pillow, but avoid using them on walls as it has a tendency to overpower the room. 5. Blue for GrowthAccording Vastu principles, blue is considered as an appropriate color for bedrooms. Blue stands for new growth and relaxation and hence it is the right choice for bedrooms. Shades of blue works very well as wall colors and brings a relaxing environment in the bedroom. For fabric accents, turquoise works well through the bedroom interior. 6. Green for HopeGreen is appropriate for bedrooms as base color. Hues of green generally symbolize nature, hope and freshness and so they have the ability to rejuvenate the mind and body. For bedroom walls, especially in kid’s bedroom, light green or green-tinted shades give the room a healthy atmosphere. 7. Red for BraveryRed should be used sparingly in the bedroom. As red is a symbol of bravery and power according to Vastu, the color holds a great deal of energy and stress. So, avoid bold uses of red for bedrooms. Instead, you can use warm, muted brownish reds for pillows and not for walls and curtains.8. White for IntensityWhite is not generally the color of Indian bedroom design, as people think it might get dirt easily. But, Vastu tradition suggests that brighter shades of white make appropriate colors for bedroom accents. You can use them for your bedroom ceilings which reflects light and helps your brighten the room.
Whether it’s your best work slacks or a pair of old, well-fitting trousers, a pants button can fall off on even the best-made pair with enough use. Rather than tossing them and getting new pants, or going to an expensive tailor for a simple fix, you can sew the button back on at home. The fabric of most pants is thicker than many shirts, and there are a few techniques that differ from sewing a shirt button back on. Soon you will have the sewing skills you need to put those pants back on before you even miss them.
