Poppies Machine Embroidery Design

POPPIES is a wonderful machine embroidery design, small, but really expressive. Bright flowers would look admirable on home textiles, clothing, and on women’s handbags made of fabric. The image combines 3 shades of red, making the poppies very well drawn. They are so similar to real flowers that you involuntarily want to get closer and inhale their sweet fragrance.

In ancient times people believed that the smell from poppy blossoms is able to sedate. There was a legend that the goddess of agriculture Ceres fell asleep, walking through the poppy field. She slept all the summer until the harvest time came. In fact, the subtle fragrance of these flowers is unlikely to act as a sleeping pill. However, people used to get strong sedative and narcotic drugs from the milky fluid of the opium poppy – latex. Therefore, despite the acknowledged benefit for the pharmaceutical industry, growing this kind of poppy is now banned in many countries.

The ban on opium poppy cultivation doesn’t mean that flowers with satin petals are hard to find. To the delight of gardeners there are a large number of decorative varieties of this plant. They’re no less beautiful, and sometimes look much more interesting than their wild counterparts.
