I decided to tat a sunflower, and then thought it would look good as a necklace and this is the result.
I used a button as the centre and added some square beads. It lies really well around the neck as the button gives it some weight, in fact I wore it today at work. The yellow is not as bright as I would really like, but I don't have such a vibrant shade, just pale or variegated yellows.
My first attempt looked like this and I am attaching it to this little bag as it is far from perfect.
At the moment there are a lot of sunflowers about and you can buy them as cut flowers, a bunch of them can look stunning.
This year I grew a few in my garden and this one is over 7 ft tall, I had to bend it over to take the photograph! Can you see the insect on it?
I am now thinking of making a Michaelmas daisy using the same idea.
