Fabric Flower Necklaces

College Daughter needed donations for a Fund Raiser her Sorority is having for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. I'm not positive, but I think the items are bid on by the girls and their friends to raise money... and some are maybe used as door prizes for other activities of the evening. Anyway, she asked me for flower necklaces so here's two of the items that I sent this weekend.
