A crochet sun that's sure to brighten your day!
A cuddly crochet sun would be a great addition to a baby’s mobile…
or hanging in a school locker…
or on the rear dash of a car…
or anyplace that needs cheering up.
(I’m thinking every dentist office needs at least one).
Finished Size: 6″ tall by 6″ wide by 1 1/2″ deep

Sew on eyes and embroider a smile.
If you want your sunshine rays to stand straight and tall, you may need to starch and block them. Otherwise they will probably curl a bit, which kinda looks cool too in my opinion.
