I found a sunflower on Pinterest and searched it's origin. Turns out, it's a pattern on Ravelry. If you'd like to make one, just go to Ravelry.com, register (it's free to join) and search crocodile stitch sunflower. If you would like help finding the pattern, just leave a message and I'll give further directions to it. The designer calls it a dalhia, I think, but you choose! By now, you must realize that sunflowers are my favorite and this has to be the best pattern yet. It's designed ot be a square for further application in an afghan or pillow, but I use mine as cushions for bears, bunnies, etc.
So then, which comes first? The critter or the cushion? In this instance, it was the sit-upon.
I went through my collection of perhaps appropriate fabrics.
And the winner (s) are:
Well, so far, anyway. I'm thinking maybe a panda bunny or bear in gold and brown.
Stay tuned!!! You never know what will happen! I'll keep you posted!!
Your sunflower is beautiful. they would look cute for coasters if you made them smaller.
That's a great idea, Kay! Can you imagine a table set with pretty sunflowers at each place? I just may have to do that as I love crocheting these. Actually, the brown center where the glass would be is only a couple of inches as it is photographed. The center size can be changed by the number of rounds done before the petals are added!
