Oh sweetie, that’s a wonderful looking sunflower!!!
I’m pretty certain that is done in acrylic. You asked for tips though-create the sunflowers using mercerized cotton for a classier look. Paton’s Grace at Michaels for example. Hobby Lobby- look for anything that says mercerized cotton. It’ll usually be a three weight, so it will be thinner. Thus, the overall flower will be smaller but I think it will look more elegant.

by the way, they didn’t figure out I had long COVID for 2 years, you have my utmost empathy for how you feel. take lots of breaks, politely insist that others take care of themselves, and ask for help. You can crochet and rest.

Maybe try doing a picot in the middle of each petal so the have the classic sunflower point. I hope you feel better soon!

This is a beautiful sunflower!! If you wanted to add anything, maybe a row of petals layered behind to help give it that full sunflower-y look! I absolutely love how you potted it too - so adorable. I hope you recover soon and don’t forget to drink plenty of fluids between your crochet breaks!

Hi! Your sunflower is really beautiful, I know your daughter will love them. If you want my recommendation, I would say add a inner layer of thinner petals, as to make them more like an elongated almond shaped or so. Sunflowers usually have a lot of petals but they are thin.
Yours is unique yet it captures and represents a sunflower already. So if you leave it that way it’d still be gorgeous :sparkling_heart:
