How To:

To get the right size for your choker you will need to measure around your neck and then take 2 inches from that measurement. This will be the length. The width is up to you, although I would suggest 1″-1.5″ wide as this is a stiff fabric and could be uncomfortable if any thicker.

With these measurements, mark out a rectangle in your leather fabric. Cut out.

Depending on the width, you should be able to fit 1 or 2 eyelets on the short edge of the fabric evenly spaced apart. Mark points at each place.

Use the awl to poke a hole in the marked spots and then carefully snip open to be able to fit an eyelet in.
Use the eyelet pliers to squeeze the eyelet closed and repeat for the other side.

All that’s left is to thread one side of the choker, wrap round your neck and then thread the other side. Tie a bow at the end or a knot and leave the free end hanging. Either way the choice is yours.
