For our tomorrow, they gave their today


For The Fallen ( 4th Stanza) By Laurence Binyon

They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

As Remembrance Day is tomorrow, I thought it might be nice if all the family could wear a Poppy in honour of those that have lost their lives in battle. The thing is, the green plastic stalks of modern paper poppy’s aren’t great for attaching to most fabrics.

So I thought I’d make my own – a nice big one for the buggy hood, and a smaller one for me, even Big A asked for one.

For the large Buggy Poppy I used a basic outline and drew it onto a template ( an old cereal box). Then drew round that onto red felt. I used black seed beads to make the seeds in the centre and then a few round the middle for the stamen. For attaching it to the buggy I used a basic broach clasp, which can be bout in packs of 2 for about 99p.

We will of course still be donating to the RBL Poppy Appeal as usual.

I think it came out ok! I will also add a pic of the mini one and of Big A’s tomorrow when I can take a picture in better light!
