“When Bridget asked us to make poppies to be displayed in the Army Flying Museum, I thought I can’t crochet and my knitting isn’t that good, but I do have plenty of felt.
What you need:
I red felt square
1 black felt square
Black embroidery silk ( 2 strands)
You can make several out of just one felt square. Just use the drawing as a guide and make it any size you want, (mine is 7cm).
2 red cut outs and one black centre. Sew all 3 together with the black silk, overlapping slightly to give it extra effect of how a poppy looks.
What a great idea! Thank you Linda.
