Easy Button Collar DIY

I have ever so many beautiful buttons, and I’ve slowly been working on some projects with them. One of my first ideas was to sew them into a simple collar for an everyday shirt. I love the way it turned out, and it was so easy and quick!

You could easily have this project done in the time it would take you to watch an episode of Dexter. Or Downton Abbey, if that’s more your cup of tea. (I myself like all kinds of tea, thank you).

I already had my buttons sorted by size from my button belt project, so I chose a top that was looking tired and got to work. Since it’s been pretty warm the past few weeks, I may actually get to wear it sometime soon!

I started in the middle and worked my way out on both sides, sewing in several stretches (I didn’t want to use a thread longer than 9 or 10 inches because long threads tangle very easily).

Now that I’ve done one shirt, I think I’ll have to restrain myself from doing this to all my other shirts as well. Because, you  know, that probably wouldn’t be good for my fingers in the long run. Or my wardrobe. 🙂 If you try it, send me a pic–I’d love to see how it turns out!
