Sunflower 'n Bee Nodder

Just finished this up this morning. I had planned to make the bee smaller but I couldn't work with it so went ahead and made a larger bee. There are two curled black wire antennae attached to the bee's head.

I used dinner and salad plates as templates for the sunflower. The smaller circles are sewn together and stuffed and then hand stitched to the large circles. I then cut the larger circles at intervals just up to the stuffed circle, being careful not to cut through it. The bottom layers are tea dyed and the top of the flower has been painted and then brushed with a heavy layer of coffee/vanilla/cinnamon.
