Found Fabric Collars

I love making these collars.  I've sold many of them at a now shuttered boutique in Carmel named Findings.  It was a sweet little fabric, trim and what-not shop for sewists.  It was like going into another world when I entered and saw Nancy, the darling proprietor.  I was transported and never stayed less than an hour...just couldn't leave.  There were so many things to see...and buy.  Darn it, why do the good places always close?

Anyway, she sold my little collars.  They are made of found vintage scarves, clothes, kimonos, trims, beads and buttons.  Soft and supple, they feel great around your neck without adding the weight of a large necklace.
