You will need:

  • Felt
  • Needle and thread
  • Blank barrette, button, or pin


  1. Cut 4 leaves in the shape shown below. Mine measured about 3/4 of an inch tall, and nearly an inch wide.
  2. Sew the leaves together as shown below, then pull the threads together tightly and tie them.
  3. Flip the flower over, preferring the shape of the bottom of the flower for the clover.
  4. Sew to a barrette and clip on your little lucky charm. You could also hot glue it to a button or pin or tack your clover onto your favorite hat.
