Peter Pan Collars are a huge trend right now! I was inspired by the picture below, and figured that they look pretty easy to make.
If you’re feeling creative too, try this simple DIY tutorial.
- Thick fabric such as felt or leather
- Bostik/ good glue
- A4 Paper
- Cello-tape (optional)
Fold the paper in half and trace a half collar/moon shape, making sure the bottom middle reaches the folded side as seen in the picture. Cut out the shape whilst still folded to get a symmetrical collar
TIP: This takes a few attempts before getting it perfect
Trace the shape out onto the back of the fabric with a marker
TIP: if you’re using black material and can’t see the tracing, use chalk or Tippex to trace. Secure with cello-tape every few centimetres if you find the paper moving about.
Cut the shape out and embellish as desired with glue.
Attach ribbon by making 1cm slits, 1cm away from the top. Thread ribbon through and knot to secure.
TIP: Leave a 3cm space at the top of the collar to attach ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! email me pictures if you try it yourself, or if you would like me to make one for you!
