It is the beginning of November and I am busy making veteran poppies! Buyers manage to find my flowers on some obscure websites I forgot I was using to sell my handmade brooches 🙂
This year I slightly modernised the look of 2 brooches I am selling as veteran poppies: one of the brooches is made of cotton velvet and no leaves or stems
the other one (although with less petals) features 2 hand painted pure silk leaves
I already have fresh exciting ideas for new poppies for the next year which I will present soon. I am going to play with new fabrics and probably shapes too.
Another idea which is hanging in the air is to make a leather poppy. I wonder if my dear customers like it… I am definitely going to give it a go especially that I have all the needed materials including gorgeous thin red leather for it.
As a kind reminder I would like to mention my poppy tutorial again. Using this tutorial you still have plenty of time to create a poppy (or two!) to wear or give to someone special before the 11 November.
The poppies are available for purchase from my online shop. The tutorial can be purchased from my Tutorials e-store.
