Last month, Daniel's cousin told me about some infinity scarves that she made as gifts for people. Since then, I have been seeing them everywhere. I decided I needed to make one myself! I learned how to make this scarf from Sweet Verbena's tutorial found here. If my tutorial isn't clear, check out the one on her blog. It's excellent!
What you will need:
*lace (56 x 16 inches)
*satin-like material (56 x 16 inches)
There are so many possible variations for this scarf. You will see below one I made from lace and jersey material. I also am making one with jersey and flannel. Any fabrics that drape nicely will work.
Step 1: With right sides together, sew along each 56-inch side.
Step 2: Turn right side out, as seen below.
Step 3: Fold the scarf in half to line up the 16-inch sides of the lace. Pin the lace right sides together and sew across.
Step 4: Now turn the scarf inside out so that the raw edges are showing along the long sides. Pin the satin on the 16-inch sides right sides together.
Step 5: Sew across leaving a 4-inch opening in the middle. Pull the scarf through the hole so that the right sides are out. Then hand-stitch the hole closed. Done!
I don't enjoy doing self portraits yet. The toilet is in the background, for goodness sakes! I wanted to show wearing it down...
and wearing it looped twice around the neck. I prefer it this way myself.
Here is the scarf I made with jersey and lace.
I sandwiched the lace between two layers of jersey so I could experiment with using only a piece of lace. The jersey is very comfortable to wear.
Would love to see what variations you come up with!
