DIY VELVET CHOKER (EASY SEWING PROJECT)

Chances are that I'll probably never be tired of chokers... Yes, they're perfect with every outfit and are so easy to make yourself! After making them in almost every version (click here to see all the DIYs), I'm ready today to show you my favourite one: the velvet choker! I actually made one first, starting from a piece of velvet fabric and sewing all the hem and it took me about 40', so I thought about a quicker (and easier) version for all those of you not so in love with needle and thread. Sewing project, yes, but beginner level! // C'è la possibilità che non mi stuferò mai dei collarini... Già, sono perfetti con ogni outfit e così facili da fare con le proprie mani! Dopo averne realizzati in ogni versione (guardate qui tutti i fai da te), oggi vi mostro il mio preferito: quello in velluto! In realtà ne avevo fatto uno partendo da del velluto e cucendo gli orli e mi aveva preso circa 40 minuti, così ho pensato ad una versione più veloce (e facile) per tutte quelle di voi che non amano particolarmente ago e filo. Fai da te di cucito, sì, ma livello principiante!

Trust me, this is a really easy sewing project that, in other words, means that
you can actually make this velvet choker and wear it in about 10 minutes.
Dinner with the girls? You now have the perfect accessory and for less then...5 euros!

Credetemi, è davvero un fai da te facile che, in altre parole. significa che potete
realizzare ed indossare il collarino in meno di 10 minuti.
Cena con le ragazze? Ora avete l'accessorio perfetto e...per meno di 5 euro!

***

You need // Vi occorre:

- Velvet ribbon (measure your neck circumference and add 5 cm / 1,97 in). //
Nastro di velluto (misurate la circonferenza del vostro collo ed aggiungete 5 cm).
- 2 press studs (for each choker you want to make). // 2 bottoni automatici
(per ogni collarino che volete fare).
- Needle, thread and scissors. // Ago, filo e forbici.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
The cool thing about using velvet ribbon instead of fabric is that you won't have to
sew the hems except for the cut extremities. So, first, measure the ribbon around your neck
and sign where buttons will be (don't make it too strict!). Then open the studs
and take the 2 "male" parts (yeah, male... how would you call them? I really don't know!).
Fold one extremity and sew them on the velvet side: by doing this you will fix the
studs and make the hem at the same time, double winning! //  La cosa bella dell'usare
il nastro di velluto invece che il tessuto vero e proprio è che  non dovrete cucire gli orli,
ad eccezione delle estremità tagliate. Dunque, misurate il nastro intorno al collo e segnate
dove andranno i bottoni (non fatelo troppo stretto!). Poi aprite i bottoni e prendete le 2 parti
"maschili" (ehm...non saprei come altro definirle!), piegate una estremità e cucitele
sul lato vellutato: facendo così non solo fisserete i bottoni ma farete anche l'orlo!


2)
Now sew the 2 holed (female) parts on the other folded extremity, but on the internal
side of the choker. Be careful to sew the couples at the same height :) // Ora cucite le parti
col buco sull'altra estremità piegata, ma sul lato interno del collarino. State attente
a cucire le coppie alla stessa altezza :)


3)
You're done! I didn't resist and made also in blue, totally love it! //
Fatto! Io non ho resistito e l'ho fatto anche blu, lo adoro!
