For the Casual Gentleman....

Remember the ruffle picture shirts?
I was dying to make a boy's version for my nephew, Jack (or Cpt. Cheeks as we sometimes call him), so I got this little solid green shirt at Walmart, and used scraps from other t shirts in white, grey, and red, to make a collar and striped tie. He's such a little gentleman!







Cousins!




To make the collar, just measure the neck and cut out two pieces, shaped roughly like this:

Lay the two pieces on top of each other, and stitch all the way around the edges. Then sew them around the neck of your shirt! Cute, cute! :o)


P.S.
I'm having trouble finding the time to search for tutorials/ideas to feature on my sidebar, so if you see any cute ones, please do pass them on! Thanks!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!!

  6. Very cute! I've been looking for ideas for for my 2 nephews. Did you ruffle the strips or just stitch them on flat?

  7. I just stitched them on flat! I don't think the boys would be into the ruffles ;o)
