ANZAC Day 2015

100 years
Remembering those that fought for our freedom today.
#ANZAC Day #gosfordpoppyproject

30000 poppies still look amazing even after the dreadful week of weather we have had. 

My poppy on my work uniform. Hand made using red wool felt. The petals were made using a heart shape with the bottom point cut off. I then did a running stitch with double tread along all 4 petals to join them together. Pull the running stitch tight, knot off then join the first and last petal together, stitch them tight. I did stitch up each petal about 1cm to make them sit where I wanted. Attach a black button for the center. This one I pinned to my top but a broach back finding would have been good.
