Sew Happy Friday – Make Your Own Easy Infinity Scarf

 

Here is a pretty simple way to make an infinity scarf presented by Terry from Fabric Junction.  This method is the best one I’ve seen so far.  One other was too complicated and another didn’t provide such a nicely finished look.  You could make this scarf wider or narrower.  If you find wider fabric you could make it longer.  You can also make it out of some other types of fabric – minky, fleece, various knits and possibly some woven fabrics like flannel.  But, keep in mind that you want something that will feel nice against your face, and it’s probably better to use something that will drape nicely.

This would be a great simple project to make with a beginner sewist this time of year. But, it does not have to be a winter only scarf.  You can make it from gauze or other light weight fabrics for use during other seasons.

I do recommend that you use the free arm feature of your machine if you have one for sewing around the “circle” when joining the ends.  It seems to me that it would be easier than the way Terry does it here.

Note: This lady’s long fingernails seem to be getting in her way a little as she sews.  This is one reason I don’t recommend long fingernails for sewing. :-)

As usual, I was not asked to post this video and received no compensation for doing so.

    1. I kept mine quite short for years due to playing the piano. Now I can't stand them too long at all, and it's frustrating to me to watch someone struggle with long fingernails! :-)
