Peeking Sunflower Pattern

The satin stitch works amazing on flower petals and that is no different for sunflowers. This one is peeking into the embroidery hoop for a fun off centered design that is a touch modern.

Stormy Sunflower Field

Look at this gorgeous use of embroidery floss! From the clouds to the sunset to a huge field of flowers this pattern is so pretty. I love that there is perspective to this pattern too. Larger sunflowers in front fading off into the distance.

Muted Sunflower

Give a single sunflower pattern a different look by using two tones of yellow for the petals. This adds depth and character.

Sunflower Bouquet

French knots are the perfect stitch for the center of sunflowers. They give texture that pops right off the embroidery hoop.

Sunflower Floral Pattern

Try out this bold pattern featuring a variety of sunflowers in different ways. Then it pairs them with other lovely blooms and gorgeous greenery.

Abstract Sunflower

Not all sunflower petals need to look exactly like a real life replica of a flower. This pattern plays with a variety of stitches and colors to create an abstract style flower.

Sunflower Hug
Sunflower Hug by Why Knot Stitches

Hug a bunch of sunflowers with detailed designs in this pattern. I love that the flowers are bright and in color while the person holding the flowers is stitched in black thread on a white fabric for an extra contrasting pop.

Sunflowers in a Blue Vase

Embroidered sunflowers look great in a vase too. This vase is in a lovely blue that compliments the sunflowers well.

Sunflower Fun

Stem stitch is a great option for the stems of flowers (it is in the name right, haha), as you can see in this pattern. The color choices are really pretty and have a more vibrant tone rather than a muted one.

Sunflower Mix

There are so many ways to set up sunflowers in an embroidery pattern. I think they look good alone or grouped with other sunflowers like in this pretty mix pattern.

Sunflower Pretty

Another wide variety of sunny blooms shine in this pattern. The details on this one are just stunning. Take a closer look.

Summer Sunflower Pattern

One sunflower is pretty, but if you feel like it needs something add leaves and vines to go with it. Then for even more visual interest use varying shades of greens for those parts of the pattern.

Stained Glass Sunflowers

Create a lovely mosaic of threads to create a sunflower embroidery project. Line sections with black thread to make the look of the leading in real stained glass. It makes for such a striking design.

Modern Sunflower Pattern

Modern and cute! Instead of focusing on one central flower, show off smaller sunflowers in this hoop-filling pattern.  

Big Sunflower

I love the use of the running stitch for stems in this pattern. Plus, the center of this sunflower is amazing. 

Sunflower Bouquet

It's in the details of the sunflowers on this one. You can add such depth to your projects by using different stitches and colors when embroidering.

Sunflowers Pattern

This sunflower design features thicker stems and fine details in the petals and centers. I also like that it portrays sunflowers from different angles.

Sunflower Love
Sunflower Love by Patterns and Stitches

This last delightful pattern is adorable. I love that it plays with non-traditional sunflower colors for some of the flowers. You can always add in or swap colors to match your design preferences.
