These cute little sunflowers are not only a joy to whip up, but would look marvelous as embellishments to your craft projects, clothing and home.
They are quick and easy to make, but intricate in design. Perfect for a spot of afternoon crochet.


  • Embroidery Floss
  • Crochet Hook (1.25mm)
  • Stitch marker
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle
  • Stuffing to fill your sunflower

Any type of yarn can be used for this project along with the yarn manufacturers recommendation of hook size.
We chose to make our sunflowers relatively small (measuring approximately 5cm in diameter) and therefore decided to use embroidery floss as our choice of yarn, along with a 1.25mm size crochet hook.

This project works best if you use three different shades of embroidery floss:

  • A dark shade for the centre of the sunflower (We chose brown)
  • Green for the leaves of the sunflower
  • A nice bright colour for the petals of the sunflower. (We chose to stay true to a traditional sunflower and picked yellows and oranges for our petal colour. Feel free to play around with other petal colours!)
