This year is Logan and Madeline’s first St. Patrick’s Day! This time instead of creating a keepsake for our home, we wanted that make something they could wear to celebrate the holiday. Sherrie came across many ideas on Pinterest, but we both fell in love with this painted green shamrock on onesie/shirt. After all, what’s gender neutral and adorable!? See our pinspiration here!
Here’s the supplies we needed:
White onesie or t-shirt in your child’s size
Various shades of green fabric paint (we also used white to make lighter shades)
Pencil with an intact eraser
Cardboard or hard surface to put inside to prevent bleeding through
Printed out shamrock for tracing
After you have gathered your supplies and are all set up, you will want to mix your paint so that you have the exact shades that you want to use. It’s much easier to mix first before you start to create.
One way to begin is to trace your printed shamrock to ensure that there is a recognizable shape. Then you can start stamping the eraser all around the shamrock. Or, Emily placed the shamrock face down and literally stamped around it, so that when peeled back it left the shape. Emily chose to go with an ombré technique, starting with the darkest first and working out to a lighter shade and Sherrie chose to place the different shades randomly around the shamrock.
Here is Emily’s onesie for Madeline:

We can’t wait to see these outfits on the kids for St. Patrick’s Day, so cute and festive!
