"I have been making lots of poppy flowers in different versions lately, from poppy brooches and poppy pins, to appliques and baby blankets, but I realized I haven’t made a poppy flower design for kids that they can wear as hair accessories. So here it is, the Poppy Hair Tie! Your little one can wear these cute flowers for Remembrance day and of course, you can use them as appliques for hats, hair bands and hair clips, the possibilities are endless. I have used DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook for these poppies and they measure about 9cm in diameter. If you change the hook size and yarn weight, you can modify the size to fit your project."
"These poppy brooches are easy and quick to crochet, you can make a bunch of them and gift them to your friends and family. The perfect last-minute project before Remembrance Day. The poppy is crocheted in one piece using black for the center and red for the petals and the leaf is crocheted separately and attached at the back. I used DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook and my poppy came out about 6cm tall, if you want yours bigger and turn it into an applique for blankets, clothes or shawls, use a bigger size hook or thicker yarn."
"Today I'm sharing with you a new free pattern for a Poppy Flower Applique. I have created a poppy flower pattern before, but this time I am using Tunisian crochet stitches to make it and I think the end result is so much better. The pattern is a mix of amigurumi and Tunisian crochet, but you will not need to know any Tunisian crochet techniques. These poppies would look gorgeous attached to blankets, afghans, hats and bags."
"Remembrance Day is around the corner and I wanted you to have this pattern just in time so you can make a bunch of them for your friends and family. The pattern is quick and simple and works up in no time, perfect as a last-minute project. It doesn't require any sewing, it is all crocheted around the black center. I have used DK yarn and a 3mm crochet hook to create a small poppy, but you can change the hook size and yarn weight to make a bigger one that can be used as appliques on blankets, hairbands, handbags and hats."
"This ridiculously quick and easy crochet poppy pattern can actually be crocheted in less than 5 minutes; add your pin back (or sew on a safety pin) and you are ready to go! If you share your finished project on Instagram, share it with #ODCMakers so I can see it too! I check for this hashtag frequently and add the finished projects you tag to my Instagram Stories!
"Poppies are definitely my favorite flower. Icelandic poppies are so uniquely beautiful! I love how delicate their pastel petals look. The pattern includes instructions for making a large and small poppy. This pattern uses a combination of worsted and dk weight yarns. You can use almost any fiber type to create these poppies. I used acrylic yarn in my finished designs. Cotton yarns produce a more stiff petal. Wool creates a fuzziness that makes the stamen of the flower look a bit more realistic."
