No card from me today - instead I'm showing you something different.
I would love to see the art installation poppies at the Tower of London.
They look so stunning and are a poignant reminder of the lives lost in World War One.
I can't stretch to ceramics, but I did have a go at making my own poppy from felt.
These were so easy to make and are really pretty IRL.
I used mine to decorate a gift box, but if you add a saftey pin they would make a lovely brooch.
I used a circle nestie to cut four circles from red felt.
Each circle was folded into quarters and then I attached them together with a few stitches.
For the centres, I added a few black stitches of differing lengths and then a black button.
As I said, they are VERY easy to make.
I think they would look great in different colours, on Christmas wrapping.
I'd like to enter this into the Allsorts Challenge where the theme is Poppies or Remembrance.
I'm not entirely sure if the challenge is papercrafts only,
so if it is, no worries ladies, just delete my entry :-)
