You’ve all loved poppies so much this last year that I felt inspired to transcribe them onto a book cover. Lots of lovely carded green Merino for the background, then some fabric to give a little texture.
You can see some of the texture in this shot. I added a lot of the background stitch at the pre-felt stage.
Of course I’ve decorated the back too but I try to keep it lower profile so that it doesn’t affect the user when they write in the book.
The large poppy has red crystal organza for the petals and black silk chiffon for the centre. Chartreuse centre stitch added at the end using french knots.
Spaces on Fridays workshop if you feel inspired to come and make one of your own.
