I finally finished a sunflower door decoration for use during the fall season. The flower is made from 100% felt. I made a petal pattern in 3 sizes for the petals and the center was cut freehand from a 6 inch circle. I sewed the flower to cotton backing material. I made the center with points which is different from the normal plain circle. I also added some dark purple seeds in the center for texture and color. I was thinking of the Van Gogh sunflowers when I decided on the blue background.
I enjoyed making this project. The felt was really easy to sew. I did a straight stitch around all the edges of the petals. I used a few pins when I placed the petals and I was really surprised that I didn't have any problem with the felt shifting during sewing.
