Spring in finally here, which means that it's time to (maybe) put away those winter things and start thinking about bringing out fun skirts, shorts and t shirts. But if you are like us, those well-worn t shirts from last year could use a little pick-me-up with a cute accessory. And we have the perfect solution: an infinity scarf. This is basically a long loop of fabric that can be worn in any number of ways. Many stores are selling them, but they are charging about $40 or more for one! Madness! So here is our method for making one yourself for practically nothing (we made this up as we went along, so if you have any questions or if something isn't clear, please let us know!):
What you need
- fabric of your choosing (since we're talking spring here, we chose a lightweight cotton).
Next, fold your scarf in half lengthwise (right sides together) and pin. Then sew the edges two halves together up the length of your fabric, so that you end up with a long tube.
For this next part, we're afraid we don't have any pictures. We were making this up as we went along and weren't sure how it was actually going to work! Turn your tube right side out and tuck the edges of one of the open ends inside itself. Then place the other, unfinished end inside the folded end, creating a big loop of fabric. Pin this section together and sew.
Ta-da! You now have your finished scarf! As you can see from the pictures below, you can wear it anyway you'd like! So have fun with it!
