Winterberry Infinity Scarf Tutorial

IMG_6319

Today I have a super quick tutorial for an infinity scarf. I made one last year out of Rifle Paper Rayon and I’ve gotten so many compliments and questions on how I made it. I’m sure you can find a number of tutorials for infinity scarves but I thought I would share the way I made mine just in case the world needs another simple tutorial. And I do like my method best because it only takes one yard of fabric!

I am using this gorgeous Winterberry rayon in Pine from Amy Sinibaldi’s Little Town Fabric for Art Gallery Fabrics. Let me just say, I’ve been wearing it ever since I made it, only taking it off to sleep (and I even wondered if I could sleep in it!). SO soft with the perfect drape for this scarf.

Start by cutting your fabric in half length wise, so you have two long strips.

Place fabrics right sides together and sew, using a 1/4 inch seam along one short side. (This was my first time sewing rayon with the Janome Memory Craft 6700P and it was smooth sailing! Also, I LOVE the 1/4 inch foot guide!).

Next, fold your fabric in half length wise, right sides together so you have a very long narrow strip. Starting at one end sew using a 1/4 seam allowance all the way to the other end. Turn right side out.

Fold your fabric in half, joining the two ends together (right sides together), line up the seams and sew together until you have about 4 inches left. (This closing off method is thanks to Tinkerellen since my first one has a big ugly seam down the back of it! Not really an eye sore but still, this way is better ;-).

Turn your fabric so seams are on the inside and sew your four inch opening closed, either by hand sewing or machine (which suits me just fine) I used a matching Aurifil thread (4129).

Ta-Daaa! You now have an infinity scarf to live in and never take off! I hope my instructions are clear, if you have any questions feel free to ask me and I’ll do my best to hold your hand. Really though, it’s so simple and took me a half hour total! How great would these be for Christmas gifts?? Make a few to have on hand for easy gift giving! Perfect gift for under $10!

Tag me if you make one, I would love to see!
