Sunshine Berries

Sunshine Berry

I grew up in Kansas so sunflowers are a favorite - they are so happy! These cheerful berries will add a bright, happy splash to your collection. A few hearts, some teeny bees and the title of the familiar song all come together here.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Sunshine Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
