Three cross-stitch designs (“Leprechaun’s Hat”, “Pot O’ Gold”, and “Lucky Shamrock”) are all about Irish folklore and St. Patrick’s Day. The images use rayon, embroidery and metallic floss which give different effects. The shamrock boasts the familiar phrase of “Luck O’ the Irish”. There is another shamrock ready to be inserted in the hat band by the Leprechaun who will wear the hat. The gold beads represent gold nuggets on a bed of gold metallic thread in the magical ‘pot’.
The images are stitched on pre-finished ovals ready to be finished to be decorative on both sides (with detailed finishing instructions provided) and hung as decorations after a ribbon is laced through the lace edge of the medallions. These will provide unique accents to the motif.
