Easy Sewing Project: Spring Infinity Scarf

I don’t know about where you live, but in my neck of the woods spring is upon us! I love that it’s warming up and we can head outside. As the temperature goes up, I no longer need my thick, warm winter scarves.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t use some lightweight, airy ones instead. I love wearing a scarf as an accessory, so I made myself a spring infinity scarf!
Spring Infinity Scarf

This was such an fast and easy sew!!! Only 1 seam!!!

I started out with 2 yards of this jersey knit fabric I had stashed in my closet. I can’t even remember when I bought it, but I love the different prints and colors in it. It’s a thin, breathable fabric, so perfect for springtime weather.
Fabric
I cut the fabric in half lengthwise, so now I had two pieces measuring 22.5” x 72” each.
(Note: 2 yards will make enough for 2 scarves so make one for yourself and give one to a friend!)

The great thing about knit fabric is it doesn’t fray, so you don’t need to hem it. Sweet!
You could be done right now and have two scarfs ready to wear to your heart’s desire.
However, I wanted an infinity scarf so I need to sew my ends together (the 22.5” sides).
Place the ends RST (right sides together) and pin all along the edge. PIN A LOT!!! Knit fabric moves a lot, so pin frequently to really hold it in place. I probably placed a pin every inch.
Pin-RST
Using a 1/4” seam, stitch along pinned edge. Finish seam with either a zig-zag stitch or serger.

That’s it! You’re done!!!

  8. Hi Lady.
    Are you using any sewing machine for all the dresses here?
    I love it. I know it is hard to do it manually that's why am asking. :D
