Sunflower Child

A woman at work, who collects sunflower art, lost her mother a week prior to Mother's Day.  I had wanted to make a sunflower doll for her anyway so thought this would be good timing.  The doll, by herself, stands 6" tall and is made from 100% wool felt.  She is stuffed with wool and her hands are cloth-covered wooden beads on a pipe cleaner, making the arms poseable.  The stem of the flower is wool felt sewn around a pipe cleaner.  The center of the sunflower is brown wool which has been needle-felted into the flower.  Her hair is the same color brown wool roving.
