On Collars

 Sparkly collars seem to be everywhere at the moment. Maybe I have fashion-foretelling powers, because I had a go last Christmas when I had itchy fingers and nothing to do! 
Top tip: make sure you sew the beads on the right side of the collar, lest you should have to unpick a collar's worth of beads, like I did!

To Make:

Sew long beads on to the collar using a back stitch: Sew the first bead on, then sew through it again, this time threading another bead on to the thread, and sew it down. This should help to keep them in a straight line. I uses black thread for the long beads, and gold thread for the small ones.
