Does this Sunflower Applique look familiar? You may have already seen it on my Sunflower Stethoscope Cozy. I like this sunflower so much, that I felt it is worthy of it's own post!
The petals of the sunflower can be spritzed with a water/cornstarch mixture, hand-shaped, and left to air dry overnight, if you wish. This will help them to hold their shape better.
