I don’t remember celebrating St. Patrick’s Day as a kid, but my daughter is already excited for it. Apparently, a leprechaun visits her preschool classroom on St. Patrick’s Day and makes a mess in the room. She talks like it’s quite the thing to see.
- Green felt
- Green buttons
- Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint
- Allen’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue and Allen’s Fabric Glue (not pictured)
- Green buttons
Cut TWO matching clover shapes out of green felt. Cut a strip of green felt for the handle.
Take one of the shapes (whichever one will be the front panel) and use the Tulip Dimensional Paint to make little faux stitch marks around the outside edge of the shape. Let the paint dry completely. I left two spaces open at the top for the buttons.
Use the Allen’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue to secure the buttons to the top of the front panel.
Fold the long strip in half and use the Allen’s Fabric Glue to secure the “handle” to the inside of the back panel shape.
Apply glue around the sides of the inside of the bottom panel. Place the front panel over the glue to piece the pouch together.
Let the glue dry completely, and then you’re ready to fill your treat bag! Maybe whip up a few of these Golden Leprechaun coins for your own little leprechaun?

I can’t sew, so this idea is right up my alley.
Very cute and I love that it’s no sew!
What a cute idea! I love no-sew options!
What an awesome idea, love it!
