DIY; Lace collar with velvet bow

Dear readers, this is a super easy DIY and you don’t need much of a sewing talent to do it yourself. Since I am madly in love with lace I use old pieces to embellish tops and tees. I did this with the half of my tops. (I even use a lace from underwear pieces that I don’t wear). This lace collar with the bow is made from second hand shirt that had lace collar. First I removed the collar gently with thread snips, which are my super tool. Then I sewed collar on the long sleeve top. I made a velvet bow from velvet ribbon. Easiest way to make a velvet bow is from three pieces of ribbon (one bit larger and two that are the same. Ends of larger piece of ribbon you sew along then under that you stitch other two pieces in triangle shape). Have fun.
