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.
