Easy Iron On St. Patrick's Day shirt and a giveaway

I usually make my daughter a festive shirt for each holiday.  This year I was a little bored with all the traditional green shamrocks I had seen everywhere in stores.  I decided to make her a sassy St. Patrick's Day shirt incorporating her favorite color, blue. 
The shirt was very easy and took less than half an hour to complete.

-Blank Shirt
-Scrap Fabric
-Iron On Letters
-Heat n' Bond
Start by drawing or tracing a four leaf clover on the back of a small piece of Heat n' Bond.  Trim the edges and iron it onto the back side of your fabric.
Cut out your clover.
Peel the Heat n' Bond backing off the clover.
Position the clover onto your shirt and press with a hot iron for approximately 10 seconds.
Next add your iron on letters.  Use a sheet of paper or ruler as a guide.  Lay out your letters and press with a hot iron.
I added a few different sized clovers.
Your shirt is done!
Pair your shirt with a cute skirt and you have a fun St. Patrick's Day outfit.
The iron on letters came from Fashion Art Projects, a great line of DIY fashion designs for the Next Style brand of fashion crafting products. 
Their website has some great ideas and tutorials for their fun products.  One of my favorite tutorials from their site is for the floral applique headband.  I will be making one soon!  You can also see video tutorials on their YouTube channel.  Their Pinterest boards have some great inspiration too.
