Over the past few months I’ve seen increasingly more and more chokers. I remember when I was around 13 years old, chokers were quite a thing. We all had them. They were made from plastic and probably not really fit for a 13 year old. I remember that Pamela Anderson had a barb wire tattoo on her arm in her movie Barb Wire and then we got all those barb wire inspired chokers. It seems however that the choker has returned and I like it. I’ve seen a lot of really pretty ones but since I love lace, I’ve decided to make a lace choker.
What you’ll need.
- Measuring band
- Lace ribbon
- Snap buttons (2)
- A needle and thread.
- A charm ( if you want)
Measure around your neck. Be sure to measure an extra 3/4 inch (2 cm).Cut your ribbon according to the measurement. Fold the 2 sides of the ribbon in. Only about 1 cm each. Sew the sides separately.
Sew on the snap buttons on either side of the ribbon.
Button the ribbon and fold it in 2. Check where the middle is and sew your charm on… and viola, you’ve got a choker.
I’ve also made a little ribbon with the rest of the lace that I could slip on to a bobby pin for my hair
I hope you like these and try your own designs 🙂
