Here is a DIY tutorial for one of the hottest trends this year a Peter Pan collar. With the addition of the Peter Pan collar to your basic girly tees you can dress them up in an instant. This tutorial takes an NHL spin on this trend. Hope you enjoy it.
- Felt or your chosen fabric
- Needle & thread
- Ribbon or chain
- Hot glue gun + Glue
- Shrinky Dinks (Available at any craft store)
- Pencil Crayons
- Pattern (found here and here)
- Straight Pins
Although the list of materials may seem overwhelming this tutorial is actually quite simple.
After you print your pattern cut it out.
Print out your team logo on the Shrinky Dinks. For this step, I copy and pasted 3 logos on a word document prior to print out. Remember when picking out your logo to print that when you bake them they will shrink.
Once you print out the logo you might want to colour in the logo with the pencil crayons. This is not a vital step but it really helps the colours on the Shrinky Dink pop when you bake them. Again this isn’t a mandatory step but it is recommended.
Follow directions on Shriny Dinks package.
Take straight pins and pin the patter to the felt.
Cut out the pattern.
Remove the pins
Make a tiny cut with the scissors on the top on the felt with your scissors. Do this to both pieces of felt.
Plug in glue gun.
While your glue gun is heating up cut 2 pieces of ribbon about 10 inches long each. The length of the ribbon is entirely at your discretion and preference.
Put about an inch of ribbon through the hole you cut at the top of the felt.
Take your needle and the thread and stitch the front of the Peter Pan collar together.
Now if you have one Logo put it in the middle however if you want 2 put one on each side of the felt.
