Easy Crochet Sunflower Applique

When you make these little sunflowers in worsted weight yarn, they are easy and quick to crochet. If you need a small sunflower applique, you can use embroidery floss or crochet thread to work this pattern, although the project gets a bit "fiddlier." I've tried it both ways, and was satisfied with the results either way. You can see my project samples pictured here, and read more about the supplies I used on the pattern page.

Crochet and texture go hand-in-hand; even the flattest of crocheted pieces has a bit of texture and dimension. That's the case with this lovely flower applique. It lies reasonably flat, which makes it ideal for stitching onto many different types of surfaces. Yet it's also pleasantly textured, as crochet should be.

I've crocheted my sample flower using several different colors of Cascade 220. If these shades of blue and green don't strike your fancy, please feel free to experiment with other colors - and for that matter, other brands or fibers as well. For this project, you can raid your scrap yarn stash to get your materials.

    This little 3 1/4 inch square has a three-dimensional flower built right into it. Unlike with an applique, the petal motifs are loose and you can lift them and move them around; however, the flower itself can't be removed, because it's attached to the square at the base of the petals.
