Infinity scarves are trendy among scarf wearers, and for a good reason. Without dangling end pieces, your infinity scarf won’t simply blow away in the wind like other scarves. Plus, these scarves are smaller than the traditional variety, making them easier to store and travel with.
Looking to rock an infinity scarf in your favorite fall colors this season but don’t want to spend a fortune at an expensive boutique? Don’t worry; it’s easy to craft your own infinity scarves at home in cozy colors and materials that you’ll love without having to break the bank. Let’s explore what it takes to make the perfect infinity scarf at home.
The amount of fabric you’ll need will depend on how long you like your infinity scarves to be. One ¾ yard of fabric will yield two smaller infinity scarves, while 2 yards will also yield two scarves but slightly longer and lower-hanging around the neck.
You’ll also need color-coordinated thread, scissors, and a sewing machine.
Make sure that your fabric is washed, dried, and ironed before beginning. Your fabric care instructions should make it clear how your chosen fabric should be prepped for crafting.
Cut your fabric in half, and you should end up with two long rectangles that measure roughly 66 inches long and 22 inches wide.
Square off each piece one at a time to make sure all of their sides are cut evenly. Fold your rectangle pieces in half lengthwise and sew along the top open edge, making sure to pin the sides first, so your stitching doesn’t become uneven. Leave an opening of about 4 or 5 inches at the end of one side. We recommend sewing in from the edge by about half an inch.
Take out your pins on the sides and clip your threads to create neat hemlines. Pull the end of the tube inside out and line it up with the edge on the other side. Pin this new edge together and sew across it, moving along the entire top of your infinity scarf.
Now, turn the fabric right side out by pulling it through the hole that was left after your first stitching.
Once you’ve pulled the material right side out, sew the hole closed, and you’re done! Now you can enjoy your homemade infinity scarf just in time for fall.
