Infinity Scarf

Project Sheet:

Materials

  • (2) 1/2 yd flannel (or fabric that will drape to create the soft, flowing effect)
  • 1/2 yd wide crochet lace
  • Hand sewing needle and thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Rotary Cutter
  • Scissors
  • Pins

Directions

  1. Prepare the fabric. Remove selvage. Straighten the fabric edges and iron.
  2. If you would like to see more of one particular fabric, you will need to remove 9-12" from the 'less' desired piece at this time. Remember, this will make your scarf shorter.  We removed 9 inches.
  3. Sew the 18 inch ends together.
  4. Sew your lace piece to the right side of the piece on top of the 18" seam you just created. The lace will disguise the seam and add personality to the scarf. Trim excess lace if needed.
  5. Fold in half, with right sides together, the long way. Sew 1/2" seam allowance. You will be creating a tube approximately 18x72". Press seam open.
  6. Turn outside right.
  7. Press 1/2" fold into the scarf. You can use a pencil to darken the fold mark as it will become the seam. Lay the ends, right sides together. Sew on the fold mark that you made using 1/2" seam allowance. Because it is a tube, you will have to manipulate the fabric as you go. You will not be able to completely sew the ends together with your machine. Complete the tube closure by hand.
  8. Sew lace on top of the seam you just created.  (Fold over the ends of lace 1/2" and line them up with the seam.)
  9. Put it on and enjoy!  (The fabric will soften up and become more 'movable' the more it is warn.)
