Crochet poppy

Last year I knitted myself a poppy.  I was very pleased with the result.  The knitting pattern came with a poppy crochet pattern, so I thought I would have a go this year and see how that one turned out too.
Although in a way this one was easier to create than the knitted one, I have to say I think the knitted poppy looks better.  I'm not sure if I did something wrong with the petals but they don't look quite right and I'm not sure about its black snout.

Like the knitted one its too heavy to wear, but looks good on my bag. I might not be over joyed by the end result, but it has still taught me lots and was an interesting project to complete.
