St Patrick's Day Flip-It - Lizzie*Kate

Design: St Patrick's Day Flip It
Designer: Lizzie*Kate
Fabric: 14 count cream aida, tea dyed
Threads: DMC and Kate's Kloths
I took this piece to a Bookcrossing meet, and had a fascinated audience as I stitched and chatted - mainly children, but some adults!
The aida I dyed myself in some strong tea. I used DMC threads for the lettering, hat buckle and hat, and Kate's Kloths hand dyed threads for the shamrock, hat band, and border.
This piece will probably go in a small pine frame to match the monthly Flip Its I stitched several years ago.

Very cute! How did you get your fabric mottled?
