DIYing Peter Pan Collars

I didn't have a thing to do today (and the weather is entirely miserable) so I spent it making 3 quite nice scalloped peter pan collars using some bits of old felt that I found in a box, some random buttons and a hole punch, inspired by the fantastic Honestly WTF DIY blog. I'm a little bit proud of them because they look quite nice and didn't cost me anything to make, and I also wanted to post photos of them because I totally shook it up and changed the DIY just slightly to make a double layered peter pan collar as well. Craaazzzy! Haha... ahh I need to find other things to do in my life. Anyway... enjoy!

 With the first one I just followed the DIY on the blog, and it ended up just like they said it would. Easy enough.
 As I had nothing else to do today, and some spare felt, I made a second one and embellished it with a golden button and some black felt.
 The third one I made was completely purple, but the idea of it is so I can layer it with the other two. It's the same size as the others (because I couldn't be bothered cutting up another template), so I just kind of plonked it under the other one. Who knows if this will actually sit well once worn out. Still, it looks pretty cool!

So really I made FOUR collars. Well now. That's pretty nifty. All in all a productive day :)

Have a nice day all!


  1. I wish I had mad craft skillz like you. I think that all clothes should have collars on them. Except pants and skirts because that would be silly.

  2. Hahaha :) I completely agree. They are probably the best embellishment/accessory ever! Although if all clothes had them, then everyone would wear them, and that would not be so good. I am going to buy some more felt and make about 50 more of these and be the queen of collars! Hahah!

  3. I adore DIY, the collars look fabulous although to be fair, I really can't DIY anything myself haha <3
