This of for Day 10 of 30 Days of Creativity with the theme beiing 8 bit video games.  As Miu Miu had a detachable collar with birds or cats a season back and I love Pac Man, I decided to combine the two ideas to make this Pacman Glow In The Dark inspired collar and there is no sewing involved.  With the exception of the glow in the dark paint, E6000 glue and googly eyes, all items are upcycled from other garments.

Items used:
  • White shirt with collar
  • Paper and pen
  • Cap off a soft drink bottle
  • Scrap of paper
  • Fabric scraps, 1 in yellow and 4 different solid colors (cotton works best)
  • Heat N Bond Iron on fusing
  • Iron
  • Scissors
  • E6000 Glue
  • 9 small googly eyes.
  • Glow In The Dark Fabric Paint
1.    Cut collar off of shirt just below the collar band.

2.  Use the soft drink bottle to draw two circles.  For the Pac Man draw two lines to cut out the mouth.

For the ghosts, draw a straight line down on the sides, a notch next to each side on the inside and a rounded notch in the middle.  So the would be the same on each side I folded the paper in the middle then cut out and unfolded.

3.  Draw the shapes on the HeatNBond (1 Pac Man & 4 Ghosts) then cut out.   Iron on the Pac Man to the yellow fabric and each of the Ghosts to a different color of fabric and cut out.

To iron on at the front collar, angle toward the front and pin to check how it will look; when it looks like the Pac Man is chasing the Ghost, iron on.

4.  Pin on the remaining Ghost, one at center back the other two half way in between the Pac Man and other Ghost then iron on.

5.  Glue two googly eyes on each ghost and one on Pac Man.   To finish the edges, use the glow in the dark paint and outline each of the Ghosts and the Pac Man then allow to dry.

One dry, dot three dots in between each Ghost.
