I whipped up a couple felt poppies for Loo and Beri for Remembrance Day. I was trying to figure out a safe way to attach one to their coats and ended up making them out of felt and securing them with one stitch through each of their coats. I can't see how that would do anymore damage than the traditional pinned poppy. Mr. Crafty Ave and my poppies have already pricked both kids and mine disappeared from my coat yesterday.
