I think it's fair to say that if I could only take two things with me to a deserted island, it would be loads of colourful felt and a hot glue gun. My pen pals birthday just passed and so I made her a poppy broach to wear. I just love poppies and it just so happens that her birthday falls near Remembrance day so it just seemed to fit.
Here is the inspiration that I used for this flower. It's also a pretty great blog that you should check out.
Stitch the veins on the leaves
Stitch leaves to black backing
Stitch clip to other side of black backing
Glue button to middle. Glue black backing with green leaves attached to red poppy.
Stick it in the mail and send it away.
