These beautiful hand made remembrance poppies create a lovely display that is everlasting and truly unique.
Poppies have long been associated with remembrance and significance, but they are beautiful without all of that too. They make a lovely thoughtful gift, whatever the occasion.
Each Poppy has been made slightly different so that they capture the beauty and uniqueness of nature. Each detail is done by hand down to the sewing of the stamen and the wrapping of the wire stem and then the finished item is sprayed with starch to harden the petals and make them hold their shape when displayed. The wire allows you to shape your flower stem how you like, shortening it with a bend depending on the size of your chosen vase.
These are sold as single stems but look fantastic displayed together. The stems measure 35cm in length and the flowers are 10-11 cm wide. Materials used are Organic Cotton and wire.
I never actually intended to make these for sale as finished items, but when I launched them as patterns and kits I got such a response asking for them as finished pieces I've decided to do that with a very limited amount available .
Want to make your own? - I have this item available as a pattern and a kit here.
