I have been working on a little project of late. After seeing a few detachable collars around, particularly Peter Lapins , which I found on BurdaStyle, I thought I would try my hand at it.
For my collar I used this wonderful houndstooth fabric that my Mum found for me at the op shop and bound it in royal blue bias binding, which comes around to form the bow and closure at the front.
It was a really simple, effective project, taking the whole of 30 minutes to complete. My mind has already raced way ahead with future collar plans, the variations are endless!
