Supplies for How to Make an Infinity Scarf:

I was starting out with about a yard of a fantastic Buffalo Check fabric — graciously provided by the fine folks at OnlineFabricStore.net — and I made TWO infinity scarves! One for me, and one for my adorable little Kiddo. Twinsies!

How to Make an Infinity Scarf:

1. First cut your fabric.

I literally took the fabric I had, and cut it into two equal parts. Ending up with a working piece of about 60″ x 20″ in size for each scarf. Your sizes have some wiggle room here, just be sure to have enough to double wrap your finished scarf!

2. Fold and Sew.

Fold your fabric over length-wise, right-side-in, and sew the long edge closed. You will create an open-ended “tube of fabric”. Next, simply turn your tube of fabric, right-side-out. See… I told you it was easy. Ok, stick with me here…

3. Connect the Tube

You heard me. Connect the tube! Tuck one end of the tube inside the other, like a snake eating its tail. To create a clean and finished line, tuck the outer layer of fabric under itself to create a nice hem and pin into place. Try your best at this stage to match up your fabric pattern. It will keep things looking super polished and dare I say, professional.

4. Sew Closed

You guessed it. Sew a straight line through that perfectly pinned hem you just created. Yep, straight on through — through all the layers of fabric. You’ve now closed your hem, essentially pinching your “tube of fabric” closed in the middle.

And, you’re done! I was not kidding. TEN minutes and one perfect infinity scarf. But — twenty minutes for me, because I made TWO infinity scarves! Yay!
