Anyone who has read my blog will know I am passionate about recycling in general, and about recycling shirts in particular. I have been thinking about this project for a while, well ever since unattached collars came onto the fashion scene, perhaps nine months ago.
So the ideas shown here are very simple. I have not bought anything new to re-create these shirt collars. I just used what was in my work room, bits of ribbon, buttons, embroidery thread, an old hair tie pulled into two and a tangles necklace from which I used the crotched flowers.
The only general instruction is to carefully unpick the collar from the shirt and then sew the two raw edges together either with a machine running stitch, or by over sewing by hand.
