Wearing the Green
St Patrick's Day is nearly upon us falling this year on Saturday, March 17. As you may know, it's a tradition on St. Patrick's Day to wear something green or involving shamrocks. This tradition is known as the “wearing of the green” and dates back hundreds of years. We've decided to put together an updated collection of free St Patrick's Day Sewing Projects for 2018 to help you find your green this year!
My Connection to St Patrick
I mentioned last year my husband's family was originally from Ireland which is why St. Patrick's Day is always a fun holiday for us. His family hails from the once-pirate-infested wild west coast of Ireland.

A few years ago, we were lucky enough to go and visit their ancestral home in Westport, County Mayo, on the beautiful west coast of Ireland. We had a wonderful time there and Ireland should definitely be on your list of places to visit, especially if you can trace any ancestors there. Westport is situated on Clew Bay where Grace O'Malley, the pirate queen in the linked article was born in 1530.
So here are more than 30+ St Patrick's Day sewing ideas for 2018 that I'm sure you will enjoy.
