Hi Perilynn:

First-- Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your visits.

Wooden Teddy bear has 3 patterns for sale:
http://www.woodenteddybearonline.com/mm5/

go to the web site and do a search for sunflowers.

I won't fool you, these are not the most attractive flower patterns I have ever seen. Not my cup of tea.

It seems there could be a 'what-do-you-call-it' word problem.

Sometimes, people will call the 'Daisy' a sunflower, also known as the 'forget-me-not' and the 'loves-me, loves-me-not' flower.

I think the flowers in the patterns at Wooden Teddy Bear, are for the farm grown plant that growes to about 6 feet tall, and the center seed pod is about 12 inches across. These plants are where we get sunflower seeds, and sunflower cooking oil. Very large and tall plants. But not very well adapted to scroll saw work.

Hi Melinda I too am new. The short time that I have been here I have learned so much about scrollsawing and what my saw is capable of. There is a wealth of information here from around the globe.

Welcome perilynn.....there is a free sunflower pattern at this link.
It was designed for the stained glass world, but could also work for scrolling with a bit of "fudging". Be sure to read the copyright notice.
