Sunflowers ~

My sunflowers are hooked and the petals proddied.  Three of them are probably too big to put on a bedspring but the fourth one, though hard to tell, was hooked a bit smaller.

I got the backs sewn on two of them.  Just a piece of wool secured with a whip stitch.  

The one on the left had the top row proddied with all the same color wool.  The one on the right I used about 5 or 6 different wools and I like that better. 

Click here if you would like a simple explanation on how to proddy using your rug hook.  It's been at least two years since I lost my proddy tool.  GGGRRRR!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

They are very pretty now where do you get the bed springs.

Great job on those sunflowers. I'd use them in some Fall decorations with gourds and other colorful foliage. They are so nice and could be use in a number of ways.

I hope that you find your proddy tool soon.

They are just lovely Lauren, you did such a nice job. You never found that tool? I thought you would be by now.
They really look like real sunflowers. I love that color of yellow.
