Lolita Lace Necklace Tutorial

Make your own lace choker necklace for a Lolita Fashion outfit, Marie Antoinette costume, or super feminine necklace. A few stitches, pearls, crystals, and lace makes a lovely accessory for cosplay or weddings #lolita #lolitafashion #diyjewelry #sewing #beginnersewing

This DIY lace choker was inspired by Lolita Fashion and Marie Antoinette! Pink, lace, pearls, and crystals mean an ultra feminine statement necklace to make yourself!

A few weeks ago, I published a Lolita fashion Starter a guide for Under $99 on my other blog, and a lot of people seemed to like it on Pinterest! As mentioned in that post, I was disappointed by the Lolita jewelry options available on 
Amazon, so I decided to write a DIY tutorial for a lace choker! 


This would also be a great project to do with older children who are learning to sew or who really love historical costumes and books. This is a simple craft project that anyone can do with a few sewing and jewelry supplies.

If you are new to Lolita Fashion, I suggest reading this post, as it explains the broad strokes of this style. I’m completely smitten! Of course, given our family’s budget, my ensembles will be DIY for a while, so I’ll make sure to publish more tutorials if people like them!



Inspired by Marie Antoinette (one of my favorite movies and historical figures), and of course the general Lolita Fashion, this necklace is made with fabric, lace, pearls, and crystals. Pink satin ribbon is woven through some white lace, then strung with seed pearls and finished with a Swarovski crystal pendant.

How to Make Your Lolita Marie Antoinette Choker:

Measure around your neck with a measuring tape, and cut this much lace.

 Weave your ribbon (uncut, still on the spool) through the holes in your lace.

 Add several inches of extra ribbon on either side of the lace, as you’ll be tying your necklace into a bow with the ribbon, then cut the length that is comfortable for you.

Dab a bit of fabric glue on the ends of your cut lace and ribbon with a toothpick to keep them from fraying.

Thread your needle and tie a knot.

Start at whichever end you’d like, and sew through the lace and ribbon, stringing seed pearls (I used 15 per big loop and 5 for the two small loops around the pendant crystal) in the front of the necklace.

When you come to the center, use a blanket stitch and extra loop stitch to secure your pendant or locket.

Continue with your seed pearls until you have the same amount of loops on either side of your centerpiece.

Secure all of the stitches on the inside of your necklace with a dab of fabric glue for extra security (optional).

Narwhal Sew a Softie Pattern

This narwhal softie is an easy beginner sewing project for adults and children alike! Non-fraying wool felt and a few simple stitches will give you a cute project and sweet toy to treasure.

I've always had a soft-spot in my heart for the "unicorn of the sea." Narwhals are mysterious, beautiful creatures steeped in lore and loved by all unicorn fanatics (myself included). The Last Unicorn was easily one of my favorite movies as a girl, and that affection has not waned since!

With this life-long love interest, you can imagine my girlish squeal when helping my 2 year old son open Christmas presents to see that his aunt had bought him a copy of "Not Quite Narwhal" by Jesse Sima.

A fantastic--and very sweet--tale of a unicorn born to a family of narwhals in the ocean. He knows he's different from the moment he's born, because he doesn't quite fit in with other narwhals--although they love him all the same. One day a strong currant sweeps Kelp into an adven…

Toddler YoYo Sewing Tutorial

This easy sewing craft makes a wonderful DIY toy for toddlers and preschoolers! The fascination of a bouncy yo-yo is usually frustrated by the difficulty for tiny arms. This toddler toy is a soft plush that is weighted by beans and bounces on an elastic string. The perfect DIY toy for summer boredom, birthdays, or Christmas stockings!


There's a soft spot in my heart for sewing. My first craft I ever really loved, I spent half of my high school career taking fashion design classes and thinking I'd get my degree in the domestic art.

Convinced otherwise by the disappointment of family and teachers, I focused on science and lingual degrees in college, only to find myself with my own business as an artist some 10 years later!
Hand sewing is one of my relaxation techniques, along with needle-felting and exercise. The "slow sewing" movement is important to me, because sewing on a machine can be so costly and intimidating (not to mention frustrating if something is going wrong)…

Sally Halloween Sewing Project Free Pattern

Inspired by our family's favorite Halloween movie, "The Nightmare Before Christmas," I decided to offer a little softie pattern to make my favorite character "Sally" into a bean-bag, ornament, or pincushion. October is the Halloween-themed "Sew a Softie" month blog hop, so I thought I'd get a jump on the tutorial!



Certainly the wisest and most caring character in Halloweentown, she is also an adept seamstress and generally crafty in all of her endeavors of the movie. Relating to her on a pretty intense level (I mean she's also a gardener, how can she not be my Halloween spirit animal?!), she served as inspiration for my actual costume a few years ago.

Despite being raised in a super intense religious community as a child (we weren't allowed to celebrate Halloween until I was 14 and any movie containing witches, or the like, was "the devil's influence"), I love the holiday as an adult!
