The Loft Knockoff Necklace

Necklaces like this sale for 40 dollars from the Loft!!
I love the Loft. We live near an outlet, and it has become my most favorite store. I love the way they are designing necklaces, belts, cardigans and all kinds of accessories with flowers! When I saw this  post on how to make one, I knew I had to try it!
First, You decide on the fabric you will want to use to make your roses. I loved the houndstooth fabric because I am such a black-and-white kinda girl (and it was already in my sewing stash). You need something sturdier to put the roses on like felt or a thin piece of cardboard. I cut the cardboard to the size that I wanted my rose to be.  I then cut 7 circles per rose. I hot glued the fabric to the back and front of the rose, then used the remaining five circles to create the rose. I then added a pearl in the middle of each rose.
 Look at this tutorial for more in-depth instructions.
I found this black chain at Walmart for 4.00---and had the rest of the supplies around the house.
I loved the way it turned out!
 My sister's birthday was also coming up, and I knew that she would love one. Pearls is more her thing so I came up with this one.
I used brown and white checked fabric and a strand of old pearls that I had....and it turned out so cute that I hard time giving it up!
She loved it!
Happy Birthday, Sis!
Can't wait to make more fabric roses to add to my cardigans and belts. Hope these stay instyle long enough for me to make them and wear them!ha
