Motif No. 7/25 - Lucky Sequin Clover

Another 2 colleagues are leaving. I love to make the 4-leaf clover bookmarks to give away since it is a symbol of good luck. The leaves of 4-leaf clovers are said to stand for Hope, Faith, Love, and Luck, so I hope my Lucky Sequin Clover will bring them luck in love, happiness, success and fortune. These will be Motif No. 7/25 for the challenge. The centre piece already went to Eileen, the other bookmark will go to Kim next week:

I have the pattern in written form already, but as I am not well-versed with drawing programmes, Jane Eborall has graciously agreed to help with the drawings. Just one catch to the pattern, I used heart-shaped sequins in a certain size I found in my stash, and I'm not sure if they are easily available. I didn't start off with using sequins, but as the design evolved, I remembered Jane's Share a Tat challenge and decided to check through my stash to see what I have. I didn't join Jane's challenge earlier as I have problem finding the sequin size called for. But we can adapt patterns to whatever sizes we have, can’t we ? Well, the pattern will be up on Jane's website soon.

Oh, how sweet, the first glimpse of the adorable four leaf clovers took my breath away...or maybe it's that I am part raccoon and shiny objects (like the sequins) have that effect on me...lol...
Oh, well, nonetheless, the recipients are sew very lucky. Is there a pun in there somewhere? I hope knot...ah ha ha ha ha.

Hey, I must be part raccoon too! Shiny objects and colors blow me away. These are beautiful and I can't wait to see the pattern. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I think it was the sequin that took our breaths away. Like you, I love giving away bookmarks. There are already a few patterns that I will be repeating but I need new patterns. I am bored now...

I just discovered the beauty of sequins, and the variety of shapes of sequins there are. They are flat, so they are quite appropriate for bookmarks. I will be using more sequins for a few more designs. Hope they will work out.
