Red Amigurumi Poppy in Vase by SadDaysCrochet Red Amigurumi Poppy in Vase by SadDaysCrochet
Apparently I am a crochet machine this week.

This is a rather artistic interpretation of a red poppy- I know it isn't very accurate (I won't be submitting it to :iconnationalyarnographic:). I made it to match the new living room blinds (that haven't been made yet) as a surprise little gift for my mum.

I have been wanting to experiment making plants for a while. I might make some more decorative stems like this to put around the house, then I want to make some whimsical hat hooks that look like twigs, and eventually I want to work my way up to a 4-7 foot tree that works as both a prop for my comic world and a hat rack. So. I've got a lot of work ahead of me.

The flower has a wire base and the central point is a black button. Other than that it's all crochet- even the stem, even though wrapping it would have been easier. I wanted to update my WIP page, so if you want to see how I made this then check it out! [link]

She did! Heh, I snuck it into the vase on the shelf without mentioning anything and to my amazement she noticed the first time she walked into the room! Which is funny because she didn't notice me making it the whole day before... Anyway, she loved it.
