Fabric Flower Shamrock

For St. Patrick's Day I decided to replace my fabric flower heart with a shamrock. It was pretty simple. This time I used a green satin (or was it taffeta? I don't remember.) that was 100% acetate. It was more difficult because I wanted smaller flowers (more nearly burned fingers this way), and the acetate didn't burn quite as well as my 100% polyester red satin. It didn't melt the same and caught fire easily. I think I will look for something else or stick with polyester for my next burnt-fabric flower craft. For instructions, reference my fabric flower heart post, but instead of doing a heart do a shamrock. I like to keep things simple. :)
