Remembrance Day Crochet Poppy...

I usually always buy a poppy for Remembrance Day, but I'm very conscious of the plastic stem that they come on and the fact they can't be recycled, so I made my own crochet poppy, from the lovely free pattern found here...I shall be wearing my poppy with pride today, and don't worry, I still put some pennies in the donation box!

  1. I've often wondered about crocheting a poppy and yours is so beautiful - thank you so much for the link,maybe I'll give it a go next year. The beauty of your crochet poppy too is that is will last longer and Remembrance Day will last for longer than just a day.

  2. Thanks Shaheen, I really enjoyed wearing it and making it and have had several requests from people to make them one for next year...which will keep me occupied!
