Ankara fabric chokers are becoming extremely popular these days and you don’t have to spend a lot to own one yourself! I created mine in less than 5 minutes. All you need to create one for yourself are
A Piece of fabric
A Press on button
Iron on heat bond strip
Needle and thread
Measure round your neck using a tape measure and note this length (Mine was 14.5 inches). Then determine how wide you want your choker to be and note it as well (I wanted mine to be 1 inch in width). Using the dimensions you’ve measured, draw out on your fabric a rectangle that follows the formula below –
(Desired choker width x 2) by (Circumference of your neck +1 inch)
Hence, I drew out a rectangle that was 2 inches wide and 15.5 inches long for mine.
Then follow the drawn on lines and cut out your fabric!
Place your heat bond along one edge of the ‘wrong side’ of the fabric. then fold your fabric into two to ‘sandwich’ the heat bond between the fold.
Sew on your press on button to both ends of your choker, ensuring the snap together the right way! (I made a mistake at first myself lol).
PLEASE NOTE : You might have some visible stitch marks at the back of your choker. So if you wish to conceal it, just a gem stone or any cute embellishment over it!
All done! Your very own Ankara choker in 4 easy steps!
