Take some cardboard, a little green felt,
black button, clip
and some left over red fleece and what do you get.
A nice red poppy.
I just cut a simple poppy shape from the cardboard
and red fleece and sandwiched the card in bewteen.
A plain blanket stitch around the edge
using single sewing thread.
A leaf cut from the felt using a leaf die and my Big Shot .
I actually made this last year and one for Miss Di
which we wore to the NEC.
Forgot to take a picture and post till now!!
The back showing the safety clasp.
The leaf sewn on at 11 o'clock. Not many people know
that is how a poppy should be worn.
Especially TV presenters.
Here is this years poppy.
A knitted one this time which I will wear on my hat.
