Organza Flowers

A colleague of mine had the idea of getting all of us crafters making poppies to sell at work to raise funds for this year’s Poppy Appeal.  I decided that I would make some traditional red poppies and some peace poppies from organza.  I cut the shapes and sealed and crinkled the edges at home before taking them to work.  The crinkling takes place when you put the fabric over a candle flame for just the right amount of time.  As they seemed popular, I decided to make some more to sell at the forthcoming TRAC Does Christmas show.  I fixed the centres of the poppies with French knots and added a safety pin, but with these flowers I have added beads and proper brooch clip to finish them nicely.
