This leprechaun shoe garland is fun to make and can be used year after year. I hand sewed mine but you can make it using hot glue or fabric glue. The shoes are stuffed with green moss and have gold coins spilling out. Materials:
- green and white felt
- gold cord to tie the shoes together
- a yard of coin trim (I got mine at Wal Mart)
Cut out two green pieces for each shoe. Cut out one green shamrock for each shoe.
Either sew or glue the shoe pieces together leaving an opening at the top as shown above.
Lay your green shamrocks on top of the white felt and cut around each one leaving a small border of white showing. Hand stitch or glue them together.
Attach the shamrocks to the front of the shoes as shown using glue or stitching them on.
Using a large darning needle pull the gold cord through each shoe and then pull the cord tight and tie a bow. I tied two together at the toes and two at the heels and then alternated them as shown above.
Fill each shoe with moss.
Cut the coin trim into sections with three or four coins attached. Stuff the fabric band into the moss so it doesn’t show. Let the coins dangle out. Using the darning needle make a loop of gold thread on the first and last shoe for hanging.
