Easy Infinity Scarf {Tutorial}


Are you loving infinity scarves right now?! I sure am! I love the look and I love how cozy it makes me feel. Today I have a 5 (maybe 10) minute tutorial for a DIY infinity scarf made from two inexpensive gauze scarves.

I picked up these two black & white chevron scarves at Walmart for $2.48 (on clearance), but I've seen scarves of similar fabrics from Dollar Tree (you can see a fun green Dollar Tree scarf on last year's St. Patty's Day mantel!).

Combining my two normal-sized scarves made one lonnnnnng infinity scarf for $4.96!

DIY Infinity Scarf

Supplies:
Two lightweight, gauze scarves
Sewing machine


Step 1) Grab your two identical scarves! (But, I think this would be super cute with two coordinating scarves as well.)


Step 2) Line up the scarves, end-to-end, and sew a straight stitch down the length. Use the finished seams as a guide to keep your stitch straight. 

Step 3) Line up the remaining two ends and repeat the process, making on long loop. 


Step 4) Wear and enjoy!



You can wear your infinity scarf wrapped twice, three times or four times! Don't you love options?!



So, what do you think? Doable? If this totally novice sewer (seamstress?) can do it, so can you!

Okay, okay...If you totally hate to sew, but really want to recreate this look, you could simply tie the ends together and hide the knots in the loops. But, trust me, it's a much smoother look with the ends nice and tidy :)

  12. The methods of mental prowess that you have used to write this article are unique and rarely seen in the writings of today's writers. You have succeeded in breaking the molds of these same writers.

  14. Thanks for sharing the tutorial; your scarf is so beautiful and very neat. Combining 2 scarves is great and from that, we can have a long infinity scarf that we can loop in many times. I like your idea, thanks!
