I knew that I wanted one of his eye patches to be a shamrock so that I had to use emerald green felt but I was a bit stuck thinking up the main colour for him I was thinking maybe lime green but then I'm a bit mad for lime green and have used it a lot recently so I decided to ask on facebook. Thanks to the suggestions of my facebook fans who helped out with this and I deiced to go with Evi's suggestion and go for a black body.
So here he is. It wasn't planned but I love the way he looks slightly drunk, maybe I need to crochet him a pint of Guinness?
I'm happy with the shamrock eye and I couldn't resist a little green top hat.
Instead of buttons I've used sequins and beads for his face decoration as I didn't want buttons to distract from his eye patch. Now all I have to do is make a shamrock for his bum and I can't decide if he needs a waistcoat?
He'll need a name too if anyones got any suggestions?
I've actually made something on a monday so I feel I can post it on handmade monday
