Little People, Crafting and Collars. These are all great things. Particularity when the Little is behaving, the crafting is fast/easy, and the collar is a peter pan collar. And because these are all great things, we’ve whipped up a quick and dirty tutorial for you. The best part… it’s free!
A Very Free Toddler Peter Pan Collar Tutorial with unnecessary encouragement!
First things first, What you’ll need:
- Fabric, if you’re making the reversible version, pick 2 coordinating ones
- ribbon, or button & elastic or frog clasp
- Your pattern piece printed (download it here)
A couple notes:
- The ribbon version is reversible, the other options are not
- This is a super fast project. 15 minutes tops.
- It’s meant for toddlers, but it fits me too…
- I didn’t notice until I was finished just how Christmas-y this colour scheme was. For this, I’m sorry. I trust you will do better.
- Don’t judge me by my photo lighting…
- If you’re making this for a tiny toddler, I’d recommend placing a pleat in the center of the back.
Cut out your pieces! Good Job!
Pin your pieces together, right sides facing each other!
You’re doing great!
If you’re using ribbon, pin it in the places indicated on the pattern! Yeah!
Sew around, leaving a 3(ish) inch space for turning! You got this!
The ribbon makes turning soooo easy. Good Luck!
Almost Done! Iron that puppy! I know you can do it!
Top stitch away and you’ve won! Yeah! Congratulations! You’re great!
Here are a couple variations for you…
- the eyelet, and frog clasp are sewn on after you’ve done the top stitching
If you’re doing the elastic button hole method, double up your thin elastic,
place it on one of the ribbon dots on the pattern piece and sew around as you would for the reversible version.
Sew on your button and…
You don’t need instructions on how to hand sew a frog clasp on do you? Good.
