Frilly Shamrock pattern by Susan Taliaferro
I cut out sparkly felt shamrock and sewed the tatted shamrock on it.

Finally came up with a frilly lace edging. Beginning at the base of shamrock Petal  I looped the chain thread through a needle and insert it through the felt to make a shuttle join (picture below). Chain stitch 4 and repeat joining to felt. * Chain 2 P (4 times) 2 and join to felt.* Repeat to last P ch 2 Join to Petal 1, ch 2.  Repeat to the last petal near the stem you will chain 4 and join to felt. 

These are a few edgings I tried but didn't like them. The first is tatted with sulky size 30 and the other two with size 80 Lily Thread.

Here is a 4 leaf clover tatted with size 20 Lizbeth Leaf Greens.

Great idea to mount the tatting to the felt and to add tatting around the felt! Thanks also for the link to the four leaf clover pattern! Happy St Patrick's Day!
