Happy Friday everyone! I hope you enjoyed our DIY Painted scarf project from earlier this week. Scarves are a great addition to any wardrobe. I’m especially fond of infinity scarves. An infinity scarf is a scarf that is sewn together into a loop and worn twisted and doubled around neck (like and infinity sign,) or loose on an outfit. I bought a $5 scarf at a local superstore, painted it, and used some simple sewing skills to create this easy DIY project.
If you would like to hand paint your material first, follow the instructions from our DIY Painted Scarf.
1. Inexpensive scarf
3. Iron (used to press your fabric before sewing your stitch)
4. Pins (used for holding your hem in place while sewing)
5. Sewing machine
6. Thread that matches the color of your material
1. Fold your scarf in half lengthwise to make sure the ends of your material meet. Using a straight edge of a table or workspace as your guide, cut the fringes off of your scarf.
2. With the right sides of the fabric facing each other, fold the ends of your scarf together to create a hem about 1″- 1 1/2″ (depending on your fabric length) and pin your fabric together to prepare for ironing or “pressing” your hem.
3. Press your hem with an iron (folding 1/2 of your hem to hide the rough edge of the fabric and then folding it again to press your complete hem.) Caution: Do not iron over your pin heads…they will melt!
4. Using your sewing machine, create a straight stitch down your hem. Cut the thread when your are done.
5. Invert the fabric and you will have a perfect loop….and your very own infinity scarf.
6. Style your new infinity scarf double looped over your neck or loose.
