Crocheted Sunflowers 03.08.2014

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Crocheted Sunflowers

Hello Lovelies!
After being hugely inspired by my trip to the sunflower fields earlier in the week, I thought I'd try my hand at crocheting my very own sunflower.
I raided my craft supplies for sunflower inspired yarn and settled upon using embroidery floss as it comes in some fabulous shades.

From my collection of colours I chose the most sunflower appropriate and settled upon a dark brown, deep green and a rather sunny shade of orange.

Experimenting with the embroidery floss I got to work on creating my very own little sunflowers:

They were a fun project to whip up!
I think they would look super cute as embellishments to craft projects, clothing and bits and bobs about the home. What do you think?
I got carried away (as usual) and had to make a whole collection of them!

They make me extremely happy!

As mentioned in my last post; I found time this week to jot down the pattern for you all, so you could have a go at making them if you feel like it!?
Now the pattern is pretty simple, I've included lots of pictures to help, so it looks like a bigger and scarier tutorial than it actually is. All I'm saying is don't be put off by the length of the tutorial, it's not as crazy as it may first appear :-)
You can find all details along with the pattern on our pattern page. There you'll find a revised version of the pattern, available as a FREE pdf download, visit the Boys & Bunting Pattern Page.
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday morning!
