Looking for a quick plastic canvas project for St. Patrick’s Day?  This plastic canvas shamrock pattern makes a fun magnet for your fridge or pin.  You could also make a bunch and glue them to ribbon for a cute garland.  Alternatively, you could use them as embellishments in your other St. Patrick’s crafts.

This little shamrock pattern is just adorable and works up super fast.  Like in less than a half an hour!

When I originally shared this shamrock magnet pattern over on my first blog, it was just the shamrock shape.  When I went to post it here, I decided the pattern needed a slight adjustment.  Googly eyes make everything instantly cuter, don’t ya know?
