MALARKEY AND SHENANIGANS - PDF

Updated: Jul 21

This .PDF pattern announces a little touch of leprechaun mischief!

This pattern features shamrocks, hearts, a pot of gold, lucky horseshoes, a leprechaun hat, leprechaun feet, a little bird, and a banner at the top. The text reads,

"NOTICE: Prone to Malarkey and Shenanigans"

It is stitched using shades of green, black, and gold PATTERN DETAILS:

The model was stitched on 32 ct. Vintage Smokey White Belfast Linen (Zweigart). The stitch count is 91w x 115h and the finished design measures approximately 5 1/2"w x 7 1/8"h when stitched on that fabric. The pattern calls for whole stitches only (whole stitches = beginner friendly and Aida friendly!) The pattern includes both a black/white symbol page as well as a color page, so you can choose to stitch from the format that works best for you. WHERE TO BUY: This design is available in the Cherry Hill Stitchery Etsy Shop (Be sure to bookmark the page! It is www.etsy.com/shop/cherryhillstitchery) It is also available from the shops that have a .PDF resale agreement. The complete list can be found here. RECREATE THE LOOK:

Finish Fabric: The black plaid is French Chateau Gingham (Raven) by Andover Fabrics, SKU #9092-K1.

Cording: I used 6 strands of the full 6-ply DMC thread to make the cording. 3 strands were DMC 3345, and 3 strands were DMC 3347. I spun the cording using a Kreinik cording drill.


Bow: I used a 1.5" wire-edged black canvas ribbon from 5th Street Studio on Etsy. I also used some green ribbon from my stash for the smaller, stacked bow. The button in the centerpiece is a size 36 covered button (7/8") from Dritz. I used a scrap of black/white polka dot fabric from my stash to cover the button.


The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc--stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing, so I buy those in bulk and keep them on hand. You can see what those materials are on the Tools and Organization page.

Happy Stitching!
