Lisa from Mabey She Made It is here today sharing a tutorial for a double-sided infinity scarf.
Hi! I'm Lisa from Mabey She Made It, a DIY craft and sewing blog, and I'm excited to be part of Allison's guest post line-up!
I'll admit that I'm not much of a scarf wearer--not that I don't like them, I just don't usually take the time to accessorize my outfits since most days I'm at home with a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old. They just don't care whether I have on jewelry or other accessories. But once I tried on an infinity scarf, my mind kind of changed. They keep my neck warm, they're cute, and I look like I actually tried that day. Triple win. Especially during winter.
So when I bought a 1/4 yard Mystery Box from Girl Charlee (affiliate link), I saw all the wonderful pieces of knit and knew that some of them were the perfect size and color for an infinity scarf. And while most infinity scarves I've seen have been one piece of fabric, I really wanted to use some coordinating fabrics that were just awesome together.
Would you like to make one (or ten) for yourself?
- Start by cutting two pieces of knit 11" by the width of your fabric. Mine was 60" wide, and it's perfect. If you want just one fabric, you can save a step and just cut your knit 22" by the width.
- Put the pieces together right sides together, and sew both sides together, leaving a couple inches gap on ONE side (for turning later).
- Start pinning the two openings together, right sides together and lining up the seams.
- Now sew all around the circle so you get a circular tube. At some point, you'll have to kind of shove all the fabric inside the tube like this:
- Turn the scarf right-side-out using the gap on the side seam.
- Sew up your gap (either by hand or with a machine), press, and you're ready to wear it!
Thanks for following along as we made a double-sided infinity scarf!
