Making your own peter pan collar is pretty simple – it requires just a few steps. A LOT of time could be saved by using a fabric like felt that doesn’t fray at all. If you use felt you only need to cut one piece for each side, and you don’t need to finish the edges. I couldn’t find white felt today, only white velvet, so the instructions below include steps for finishing the edges.
Draw a circle this size on the back side of the fabric you’re using. If you use felt it doesn’t matter which side you do this on just pick a side to be the back. Then mark the half way points on the circle and draw the shape for one side of your collar.
Cut out this shape, leaving an extra .5 inches on each side when you do this (unless you use felt and then just cut along the line you drew.) If you use a fabric that needs its edges finished, follow the diagram below:
Iron the collar, sew the one section of the snap on one side of the back of the collar, and the other section on the other side for your closure. If you don’t have a snap, you can use two pieces of ribbon, one sewed to each side, and you can close it by tying them in a bow in the back.
