Several of these flowers are appliques, which you can use for embellishing other items — items you crochet or knit, or perhaps even sewn items such as jeans, sweatshirts or pillows that you can buy at the store. The flowers can also make nice hair accessories if glued or stitched to headbands, barrettes, hair clips, etc.
In our opinion, crochet is an ideal medium for transforming yarn or thread into flowers. There are many different approaches you could take, but one of the most popular is beginning with a center ring, and then crocheting your flowers in the round. This page includes many examples of flowers you can crochet using this method.
Sunflowers have inspired a number of noteworthy artists and artisans over the years. Vincent Van Gogh’s famous sunflowers immediately come to mind, but there are zillions of others who have portrayed the simple sunflower in paint, ink, or fiber. Would you like to be one of the next artisans to join this distinguished group? If so, you are invited to grab any of our sunflower patterns, pictured and linked below.
