DIY: Fabric Choker.

image

I know, I know. I’m always the last to understand or get the hang of a  fashion trend, item or faux pas. I don’t really care much for clothes (I can almost hear some of my fashion blogger followers gasping). I’m just more of a ‘beat your face to perfection and leave the rest to God’ kinda girl.
I even just got my first pair of ripped jeans a couple of months back. In my defence, you’ll most likely get walked out of Clinic if you show up in ripped jeans and a choker.

I’m not a fashion blogger! (In Khan’s voice.) When this trend started I was like “But we’ve done this before.”
My first choker was from my mom. She gave it to me when I was 14. It was made of blue beads that looked like stuff you’ll find at the bottom of the ocean. Very pretty.
But, very painful. I would wear it to church and before the 1st reading is over I would have taken it down. This also explains why I don’t wear earrings till date.

So, I understand why people will take a better liking to the fabric choker. It  is more versatile and more comfortable.

I was going to get the regular ones sold everywhere but I decided to use all this velvet fabric I have lying around. I got to my pile of old stuff and found this jacket that I no longer wear and that is too raggedy to give out. The pattern is amazing.
You’ll need
-Fabric of choice
-pair of scissors.
-measuring tape
-old clasp
-needle and thread

I got all my materials together and then,
-Measured my neck with a tape rule(weird thing to say)
-Added two extra inches for extra.
-Measured two inches as the width (width?) of my choker
-Cut
-Attached a clasp from an old necklace with needle and thread.
Done!

Obviously, you can do this with almost any comfortable fabric.
Also, you can add a charm to the front. I just liked mine this way. But, go crazy. Do it all. Feel free!

Can we also take a minute to talk about my DIY wig. I mentioned it in this post. It was made with long beautiful hair. But, I destroyed it in my attempt to make a bob wig. I just managed to save it a bit and make it look ‘not so bad.’ I’ll most definitely  try my hand at wig making another time.

Now that I have done this one now, I can’t go out without it. And I won’t even keep my neck well. I’ll just be raising my head so everyone will see. Lol. Do you like the choker trend? Do you own a few? Or did you get on the train late just like I did. Do let me know….

Above everything, love one another earnestly, because love covers a multitude of sins. -1 Peter 4:8

  1. Lool I can so relate to being the last person to get into a new fashion trend. I love your fabric choker. I recently just made a denim distressed choker. I might put up a tutorial on my blog.

    • We are like besties! I’m learning though. My friends mumble when I don’t put on jewellery. Something about not being a proper lady…. Ugh.
