DIY Infinity Scarf VIDEO TUTORIAL
STEP 1: Cut out the fabric
Start by washing the fabric thoroughly and ironing it well. This will keep the infinity scarf from deforming after you wash it for the first time.
Just cut the fabric into a 2yd x 22 inches piece. This will yield 2 scarves out of 2 yard fabric provided it’s at least 44 inches wide. If you want to squeeze your scarf out of a single yard of fabric, cut two pieces 36 x 22 inches big and stitch them together by the two short edges.
STEP 2: Fold and pin
Lay the fabric strip on your workspace right side up.
Fold it lengthwise along its entire length. Make sure that the right sides go together when you fold the fabric. Align the edges and secure everything in place with pins or clips.
STEP 3: Sew the tube
Make a stitch along the long raw edge using either 3/8 or 1/2 inch seam allowance. You will get a fabric tube after this.
STEP 4: Turn halfway around
Now you will need to turn the entire thing inside-out but just halfway.
The easiest method to do this is to grab one of the raw edges and then thread it through the tube. Stop when you align the inner raw edges with the outer raw edges. Make sure the side seams are also lined up. Pin and make sure to leave a 2 inch gap for turning inside out later. I’d like to mark this gap somehow, either using double pins or by using a disappearing marking pen.
STEP 5: Sew the short side
Check if everything is nice and flat on the inside of the scarf and if it is, sew around the outer edges of the opening using the same seam allowance. Back-stitch at the beginning and end of the seam.
Leave a gap unstitched so that you can turn the scarf inside out.
STEP 8: Turn the whole infinity scarf around
Turn the scarf right side out through the opening you left earlier.
STEP 9: Stitch the gap
All that remains is to stitch the opening shut.
You can do that by hand or with a sewing machine. If you use the machine, you will finish faster. If you sew it by hand, the stitch won’t be visible.
- To finish the scarf by hand, sew the opening shut with a ladder stitch.
- To finish it with a sewing machine, fold the edges on the opening inwards a bit and press them. Use pins or clips to keep everything secure. Then just make a straight stitch across the opening.
