Fur Collars - H&M, Top - Miss Selfridge, Jacket - Miss Selfridge, Jeans - Topshop

So I've been after a faux fur collar type thingy majigy for a while now. I remember last year there being heaps in H&M but this year they seem to have all disappeared. I've been hunting on Ebay, Asos Marketplace and charity shops but haven't found what I was looking for, so I resulted in doing a bit of DIY. 
 I bought 2 mini collars from the H&M sale for 1 pound each and sewed them together. (This was a challenge enough for me, I'm no Gok Wan) But after doing this I realised that the bottoms were still too big, as most collars get smaller toward the tips. So I folded in the bottom corners and sewed the lining together so that the tips would be rounded. (I want to make them even smaller now, as looking at the above picture they still seem too big!). 
 There are loads of smaller collars still in shops if anyone feels like being a bit adventurous, I'm thinking of doing it in black also!! Maybe this could be the start of me re-vamping clothes, or maybe not....after all, I haven't shown you a picture of the stitching!
