.:Tutorial Tuesday - Faux Peter Pan Collared Shirts:.

The Peter Pan collar seems to be super trendy right now, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon by turning some plain shirts into something a bit cuter with a faux Peter Pan collar.

Here’s what you need to get started:

- t-shirt(s)
- iron on vinyl
- iron
- pen/pencil
- scissors

Start off by taking a plain piece of paper (even tissue paper would be great since it’s a little bit see through) and trace the neckline of the shirt.

You can probably find a template online somewhere for the collar part, which is totally great – but you do need to make sure your neckline will fit the shirt you have. Find the middle of the neckline. I just hand drew the collar part to the middle of the neckline next. I love the little scalloped edge!

Cut out your template.

If you’re like me and like to match your girlies, you might have to take time to draw a couple of other templates as well. I did three different variations for my three girls’ shirts.

Now take the template and trace it on to the back of the iron on vinyl. The iron on vinyl will have a clear sheet over the top of the side that will be displayed on the shirt. Flip the template and trace again so that you will have both sides of the collar.

Cut the templates out and make sure the curve of the neckline is going to work with the shirt before you start ironing.

Iron the templates on to the shirt, and peel up the clear backing.

  4. Great idea! Do you have to hand wash it?

    1. Nope! I wash them just like I do their other clothes, dried them in the dryer, too with no problems. If you were worried about it, you could hang dry them, but iron on vinyl is designed to stay on, so as long as you apply it really well, it should stay on!
