REMEMBERING.....


Hello my Lovelies, I made a few poppies for a some of the Ladies at swimming. A lot of the ladies husbands  are Veterans, they were saying how the poppies always fell off their coats, the small pin ends up falling out. So I thought I would make some that stayed on.
I punched out circles from cheap red velvet ribbon, then I folded them in quarters, trimmed the sides. I used some old button, sewed them with shiny red thread, I didn't sew them on the poppy because it was to hard to put my thick needle through the ribbon, the back is a plastic. I just sewed up the holes, then glued them on the center with hot glue.. I ran out of ribbon after I made 9 of them...






                                                   
 I cut out an oval piece of felt, glued it all around the edge with hot glue, this left the middle empty, so the pin could slide in, I used a straight pin and a earring back to hold it on your coat.




I loved the old buttons my DS Sue gave me, I used my copics to give the poppies some shading...




I made 2 with 2 layer, and some stickle on the inside, one is mine and the other is for my special friend Miss Lilian, she gave me my gorgeous steam punk broach. I'm going to tell the Ladies when they sell the poppies next year, the can wear these ones, then they can just give the money to the vets..

I finally finished my tag cupboard, but I'll give you a peek and save the rest for tomorrow.



Today is all about remembering all the Great men and women who dedicate their lives to bring Peace to us all, thanks so much for visiting my nest, wishing you all PEACE.....  ((( BIG HUGS )))

                                           NAMASTE !!!!

Hello, my little magpie friend! Guess who has come calling from your past, lol! It seems ages since I've been in my lovely routine of visiting my friends. Your button poppies are incredible, Dianne! I'll bet the ladies were over the moon with them and the clever way you made it so they won't ever fall off! Brilliant!!

I'm having troubles with Blogger erasing my comments, so I'm going to close and hope you get one. Your creations are simply stunning all the way back to the beautiful photo box for Jan inspired by Miss Julie! It cleanly knocked my socks off and I'm sure Jan will feel the same way when she sees it in real life!! Hugs, Darnell
