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
). 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]
