doily lace collar deux: do it yourself

November 22, 2011 § 22 Comments

see? i kept good on my word that i’d be doing more collar tutorials. based on my first version seen here, i wanted to keep with the lace doily idea, but this time using two of them. and again, this tutorial requires zero sewing skills. in my humble opinion,
i find that diys can sometimes be a bit complicated, therefore i like to try and keep mine sublimely simple. here is a super simple collar that can be mastered in matters of minutes!

to do:
1. begin by folding both doilies in half. gently press with an iron if desired.
2. next, with a little piece of the hemp twine, connect two ends of the doilies together and tie with a bow.
3. continue with the colored ribbons and tie little bows connecting the front half of the doily through the back half.
4. lastly, with a pair of pliers, slightly squeeze the end hooks of the bungee cord to close tighter {if needed} and hook each end onto each end of the two doilies.
5. attach tiny antique brooches for extra flair! {as in the movie office space}
6. you’re done!!
