My name is Sarah Taylor, and I’m a frequent blogger to Wikihow and DIY Mum. Sophia and I are childhood friends, but we’ve only recently reconnected via an online DIY Craft gathering. I figured I was going to share
one of my favorite DIY accessories with you!
I don’t think there’s anything better than a sexy Peter Pan collar, but I messed up this cute little one to cover up a simple white t-shirt.
Here’s how you do it:
You’ll need cloth (at least 1/4 yard, though 1/2 yard is better), cardboard, scissors, snaps (or hook-and-eye closures).
- Sketch out the outline of the collar on the cardboard. I’ve winged it, but you might want to take some measurements to be healthy. You may even change the design of the collar!
- Fold the cloth over it, so you can cut two bits at once. Pay attention to the pattern of our fabric if you need to!
- Pin the paper collar to the cloth and cut it. Leave a little space around the stencil for your seam allowance.
- Create another one on the another side of your collar.
- Pin your two bits of cloth with the right hand facing each other.
- Ensure you keep the right bits together, and you need them to match up as best they can.
- Starting at one corner, start stitching around the edge using your sewing machine’s foot as a reference.
- Sew almost the entire way back to where you began, then stop about an inch before that. Use the little opening on your left to turn the tube inside out. You would need to use a pencil to make the corners pointy. Do this on both of your collars.
- Iron all of the bits hard. Hand, at the middle, sew the two halves together.
- Sew the snap (or hook-and-eye) at the back of the neck (the top corners of your collar)
This is it! Ok, I hope you’ve had fun making these!
Thank you, Sophia, for encouraging me to share with your audience!
