The 'Poppy' Brooch


A while back I made the petal pillow from Cluck Cluck Sew and given my propensity to miscalculate when undertaking any sort of mathematical task I found myself with half a dozen left over petals….

I turned them into a really cute little ‘poppy’ brooch for Em’s little girl - Poppy!

It was pretty easy if you want to try - I just put a pleat in the base of each ‘petal’ and then did a basic running stitch to hold this pleat in place and thread them all in a line.

From there I just gathered up the thread so that the petals came together in a flower and sewed it to a brooch pin.

Added a little covered button I had made and there is your poppy brooch.

Hope you love it as much as Poppy does!
