The collar on the Dude Baby bib!

Several sewers have had questions about the collar on Dude Babies (P189). So here's some pics that might help!
With right sides together, align the  collars to the bib panel. Make sure there are 1/4" seam allowances in the very center. Sew the edges shown.

Fold a collar up and press   - with seam allowances down.
With right sides together, align another collar piece as shown above, pin. Sew around the edges - notice the red thread seams.
Remove pins. Clip corners. Turn right side out.
Make one very precise 1/4" cut in the very center.
Fold the raw of the open part under and hand sew from the center to the pink arrow.
Of course, you do this for right and left sides of the collar!!
