diy: chiffon-edge leather collar



Just a quick post before kicking off a lovely weekend in Venice!  This is (obviously) another take on the good old collar necklace project.  I simply 1) used the collar from a favorite white shirt as a template and cut the collar shape from a piece of scrap leather, adding about 1/4 inch at the top, 2) folded down and glued the extra material at the top, and 3) sewed some chiffon around the edges, exactly as I did here.

I've been trying to be better about squeezing in DIY time into my erratic, all-over-the-place schedule, with decent results thus far, so more projects are definitely to come.  In the meantime, I'm off to enjoy La Serenissima for a bit.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
