Sunflowers are pretty hard to resist. These would look great in a decorative bud vase and as part of a nice floral arrangement. Shannon Lawrence from The Warrior Muse, you now have the answer to your question! Shannon asked what this motif would be used for, when I posted my original motif pattern.
Begin by making one 8- Sided Burst of Color motif, using colors that speak “sunflower” to you.
Step 1:  Take a small brown button and 1 piece of pipe brown pipe cleaner. Insert it through button and over center of flower, so stem hangs below.
Step 2:  Twist brown pipe cleaner together; join green pipe cleaner to extend stem. Spiral green pipe cleaner down around brown pipe cleaner.


All patterns for A – Z Challenge 2013 are originals designed and created by me, so please abide by all copyright laws. However, you are more than welcome to link to my work. In fact, I would very much appreciate it if you do. Thank you!
