A few of them even had cool buttons on them for the centers.
I think I got enough fabric to make 3 or 4 dozen flowers (in lots of colors) for about $5.00
It's great too for learning because your just cutting up an ugly shirt.
The only part that I hate is checking out with a pile of really ugly clothing and I want to say..."I'm buying it for the fabric!"
