So how do we go about making one?
What you'll need:- Fabric (I used a blue cotton like material), white lace, ribbon, scissors, needle, thread.
- Cut the fabric into the desired size & shape (I did mine with a rounded outer edge). Just make sure it's long enough to fit around your neck.
- Sew a blanket stitch using white thread around the outer edge to create the almost scallop effect.
- Sew the laceall around the inner edge.
- Sew a piece of ribbon to each outer corner to enable you to tie it up or sew on poppers if you prefer.
Ta Da! That's it.
Try experimenting with fabrics and designs. Faux fur would also make a great alternative - just ditch the lace edging and instead of blanket stitching the outer edge just hem it instead and add a ribbon strap to match the fur.
If you do this DIY yourself - tweet or comment with a link to your results. Happy DIYing!
