I used red felt for my poppy petals. The black if also felt, a half inch strip cut with pinking scissors and then gathered into a circle using a running stitch.
Each petal is pleated and then stitched in place. I then sewed the petals to each other.
The black centre I stitched to the petals.
I finished it off with a button from the monochrome button pack.
Stitch a brooch back onto the back of your poppy to finish.
You can find the button packs here -
There are lots of different colour themed packs to choose from that contain black buttons. It would also be a lovely if you had a button from your family button box to use too.
Brooch backs here -
I hope you like my poppies.
If you are wondering why three poppies, well one for me, one for my sister and one for my Godmother who admired my poppy last year but by then it was too late to send one to her so I sent one this year instead.Have a reflective and peaceful Remembrance day. Love Katrina x
