Crochet Sunflower Applique

Here is a beautiful crochet sunflower you can whip up quickly and add to your projects. Add one to a towel to brighten up your kitchen. Make your dining area shine with sunflower placemats or a table runner. You could even use it alone as a coaster. Have a sunny porch or patio that needs a sunflower pillow?

This applique is also a part of a free CAL, the Every Day Wall Hanging. This wall hanging is unique in that the different appliques can snap on and snap off, allowing you to have a different decoration whenever you want. There will be other appliques released by season or holiday, or when inspiration strikes.
