Sunflowers are so beautiful - they make me feel so warm and happy! I wanted my sunflower brooch to have lots of texture and personality, so I cut out the petals from wool felt in a claret wine color, then embroidered each one individually and lavishly with two shades of gold cotton embroidery floss. The embroidery made the petals curve up slightly, lending a sculptural quality, along with the texture and personality i was looking for.

I embellished the center of the sunflower with lots of French knot embroidery in wine and dark brown, and then I sewed on glass beads in deep garnet and gold. I added two embroidered leaves in dark green cotton brocade backed with the claret wine felt.

The sunflower is attached to a heart shape in rich gold wool, which has been plumped out with polyester craft batting and embroidered along the edges with wine cotton floss. The heart shape is approximately 3" in both length and width, and features a silvertone pin bar for fastening.

The Embroidered Sunflower Brooch was handmade by me from my original design in a smoke-free and pet-free environment. The gorgeous 100% wool felt that I used for this piece comes from feltonthefly.etsy.com.
