Remember with a handmade Poppy

Gone are the days when a paper Poppy sticking out of your lapel was enough to show your respect to war vertrens. These days thanks to the celebs on Strictly Come Dancing and the X-Factor your tribute is considered pretty pedestrian if it's not dipped in glitter or upcycled. 

The Poppy is such a popular flower and with Rememberance Day coming up on Friday we thought we would pick the best of The Making Spot poppy crop for you to peruse. 

This Maria Diaz Remeberance Fields design is stunning and when finished looks more like a painting then a cross stitch project. 

This poppy throw is sure to brighten up any sofa and give it a country vibe. Download the pattern now.

What's that hiding amongst the flowers - ahh a puss!

Use this simple Poppy pattern to create a sweet little Poppy picture, or use the design to create smaller projects like cards or tags.

Have you got a favourite pattern? We would love to see :)
