Doesn't this little collar look good enough to eat? Believe it or not, it was made out of cloth napkins! I was lucky enough to find a set of four on clearance. At the time, I didn't know what I would sew with them, but the fabric was too hard to resist. They also already had a red lining and enough stability to stay crisp.
I used a pattern that I found at a local thrift shop. It had several different collars that were really popular in the 80's. I thought it was time to bring them back. This little project only took about an hour to complete since there were only two pattern pieces. As you can see, I also had a special someone in mind when I was sewing and I embroidered her name on it. I used a hook and eye on the front as a closure. It really lays so pretty and flat.
I think a little collar like this could be worn with a plain shirt and it would definitely help to make a statement. I hope you have enjoyed this post, pass on what you have learned and are generous with what you make. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
