What is super cute? Super fashionable. Can freshen up your winter wardrobe in seconds and can be created in less than 10 minutes?
You don’t even need to be a professional seamstress! If you have a sewing machine handy and are able to sew a straight line, then you are in business!
What if I told you, all it would cost you is about $2? Doesn’t this little DIY project just keep sounding better and better! Are you ready to get started yet?
If the thought of sewing makes you a little anxious don’t worry! I am by no means anything near resembling a seamstress. I can use a sewing machine for a straight line and that about it and the good news is that’s about all you need to know for this DIY infinity scarf project!
Perfect for a gift or to match your little lady
1 1/2 yards fleece fabric
sewing machine (this sewing machine is similar to what I use. Cheap and get’s the job done)
You need about 1 ½ yards of fabric and that fabric is actually going to be enough to make two matching scarfs. These scarfs make the perfect gift because they are beyond cute, you can pick fabrics that match your friend’s individual styles, and they look great on everyone!
If you’re lucky enough to have a little lady that would love to be matching with you, then this is the perfect thing to add to your wardrobes! My daughter loves to be matching her mama and as soon as I handed her this matching DIY infinity scarf she didn’t want to take it off!
How to find fabric for cheap
This is how you are going to be able to find the fabric for super cheap! You need to wait for the sales and then stock up and if you can stack a coupon on top of the sale make sure to do it! My very favorite place to do this is at Joann Fabric and Crafts. No, I am not being paid to say this. I just truly find great deals at their stores! Plus, a lot of the time they have a 20% off your total purchase, including sale items!
I actually bought this fabric last year during one of their Black Friday sales. The fabric I am using for this scarf is a flannel and that type of fabric goes on sale fairly often at Joann’s.
So last Black Friday I believe the flannel were all on sale for less than $2 per yard. So I bought 1 ½ yards per scarf, each section makes two scarfs. That brings the total cost per scarf to a whopping $1.50!
If you are in the market for a sewing machine this one (affiliate link, just means that I get a little bit of money for each purchase with no extra cost to you) is similar to the one I have. Nothing fancy, but perfect for the novice DIYer.
DIY Infinity Scarf
Start by laying your fabric flat on the ground and cutting right down the middle, long ways. Leaving you with two long pieces of fabric. We will only need one of theses pieces for a single scarf.
Fold your piece of fabric in half long ways with the “good” side of the fabric on the inside. Pin the long raw edges together. Sew this edge with a ½ – ¼ inch seam, starting and stopping with a back stich.
You should now have a long tube of fabric. Pull one end of the fabric through itself to turn the scarf right-side out.
Next, pull one end over itself again and line it up with the other end lining up the seams and raw edges. Pin in place.
Sew a straight line along the raw edge but making sure to leave a 4” space open.
Next, pull the right side out through the opening you just made. Sew the opening closed by hand with a hidden stitch. Or really, any type of stitch that you know how to do. It’s most likely going to be covered up in the back. But you can watch the video to see how I did it. Nothing fancy!
