Easy and quick choker
I was asked for a how-to for my cameo choker - for the tutorial I made a choker exactly the same way, but with slightly different colors and decoration ;D

Again I hope everything will be understandable... if you have any questions please ask. If you find any words that obviously aren't English please tell me, too ^^

  • How to make a ribbon choker. Easy And Quick Choker - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your material... I forgot to put the bias tape there, sorry.
    The length of the fabric is your neck size + ~3cm, for the width you have to decide how wide your choker is going to be, for example 2cm. Add 1cm seam allowance and multiply this by 2 -> the width would be 6cm.

    Now it's time for the bias tape... Cut two pieces that are slightly longer than the open side of your choker. Sew them on the open sides like shown in the picture

    Step 8

    Fold the sides around the choker like shown in the picture. Then fold the other side around.
    I really hope this makes sense Oo But I guess most people have used bias tape, so... erm.

    You don't have to use bias tape by the way, you can also use a zigzag stitch to stop the end from fraying.

    Sew the folded bias tape on. Now you should either have a choker with neat ends or started planning to shoot me for my bad explanations ;_;

    Step 10

    Cut two pieces of velcro that are a bit smaller than 3cm, that's how much the choker should overlap.
    Sew them onto the ends of the choker.

    Use the softer side of the velcro for the side of the choker that will be facing your neck. That way it won't scratch if you don't close the choker completely.

  • Step 11

    Now your choker is finished except for the decoation.
    For the black/white coker I sewed some lace onto the sides of the choker and a cameo in the middle of it.

    The other steps show how I did the decoraion the the colorful one...
