  • 1. Quality cotton fabric - cut according to Table A, Page 3. 2. Iron on interfacing, craft weight - cut according to Table A, Page 3. I use the Dcor-Bond #809, my personal preference. JoAnn Fabric's sells Dcor-Bond #809, as well as, most quilting/fabric stores. 3. Collar Hardware - Available at some craft/hardware stores. Also, you can purchase the hardware online. I purchase all my hardware from WBC Industries. Website information listed under Shopping Guide below. 4. Sharp Needles - I use a: 90/14 or 100/16 Universal Sewing Needle 5. Coordinating Thread 6. Embroidery Thread. I am using white for this tutorial, but I highly recommend that you use a color which will accent your fabric. This will help the personalization to be more noticeable. 7. Chenille Needles 18/22. 8. Water Soluble Mark-B-Gone Pen 9. Don't forget a pair of sharp scissors (dull scissors don't work well when cutting fabric).

I have been crafting and, loving it, since I was just a little girl. My Nana's and Grandmother's were all very talented crafters. I loved to visit on Sundays with them - they would show me what they made that week and I was always amazed, intrigued and full of hope that I would get to "craft" one day. And that one day finally came, and I have never stopped!
