How to make a collar necklace? / Kako napraviti ogrlicu u obliku ovratnika?

ENGLISH:

For this DIY you will need:

1. fabric (in this case black)
2.  catalog kind of paper
3. needle and thread (preferably in different colours)
4. one button
5.elastic band
6.  safety pin (you will only need safety pin if the elastic proves to be too short as has happened to me)

I didn't take photographs while I was making this necklace simply having been a spur of the moment thing (and  my first time doing it) so I cannot show you photos of the making process yet. What I can do,  however, is describe the process in a few easy steps and hopefully photographs will not be necessary.

Step No.1.

Cutting out the shape you want

What I have done is used a Vichy catalog (but any kind of thick paper should do the trick, the important thing is that it is water proof and bendable... and not too thick because you will need to sew trough it) in semi circles. Then I have used that paper cut out to cut out the black fabric in the same shape and size. 

Step No. 2

Sewing

Sew the paper cut out in the fabric using thread in different colours. When you finish, connect the two semicircles with one button.  Finish it by sewing by some elastic band (or any kind of material, you can get creative) in the end. (The elastic band that I have used proved to be too short so I had to cut it in two and put a safety pin but you can also sew a button or whatever if you think that will look better.)

HRVATSKI:

Kako napraviti ogrlicu u obliku ovratnika?

Što vam je potrebno: 
1. (crna) tkanina
2. igla i konac u različitim bojama
3. jedno dugme
4. plastificirani papir (onakav kakav se koristi u katalozima)
5. elastična traka
6. sigurnosna igla (šigureca, zihernadla) ali ona će vam trebati samo u slučaju da krivo izrežete i procijenite dužinu elastične trake.


Nažalost nemam fotografije samog procesa izrade jer se radilo o trenutku inspiracije ( i prvom putu da sam radila nešto ovakvo), ali nastojati ću opisati samu izradu što detaljnije.

Izrezivanje oblika kojeg želite

U ovom slučaju to su polukrugovi. Prvo sam izrezala polukrugove iz Vichyevog kataloga, a zatim tkaninu prema njima. Plastificirani papir vam je zapravo najbolje rješenje jer nije ni predebel ni pretanak (šivati ćete kroz njega tako da je to bitno), može se savijati, a neće mu ništa biti ako se skvasi vodom. 

Šivanje

Idući korak je šivanje. Ja sam koristila konac različite boje i neravne poteze, kako to izgleda možete vidjeti na fotografijama, naravno ako želite da izgleda urednije možete koristiti samo jednu boju konca i šivati ravnim vezom. Dakle kada ste dobili dva polukruga ušijte ih zajedno tako da ćete staviti dugme na početak. Za kraj ušijte malo elastične trake (možete koristit i satensku traku ili neki drugi materijal koji ćete spojiti dugmetom itd) na poleđinu. Meni se dogodilo da sam ušila prekratku elastičnu traku pa sam je onda prerezala napola i spojila sigurnosnom igom (šigurecom rekli bi ja, ali  postoji sto izraza za to) na kraju.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
