Introduction: TUTORIAL: From Remnant to Striped Infinity Scarf
I love scarves! It’s the easiest fashion accessory for the person who wants to add a little color without breaking the bank. And last week, when I scored a deal on the HGTV Home Chevron fabric remnant from Jo-Ann Fabrics, I also scored this touch of lace with modern gray rayon/polyester fabric - Fashion Knit Fabric, Lace Stripe Jacquard Knit in Gray & White remnant (Item: 12946216) – for $3!
Here’s a simple tutorial to whip up one very fast and easy infinity scarf, stitching only once! If you'd like to see the original post, you can check it out on Hometown Betty. If you'd like to see more tutorials, you can check out the Creativity Tab on the blog.
Step 1: Measure the Length and Width of Your Current Infinity Scarf.
In my case, the measurements are approximately: 24″ (W) x 68″ (L). Please note that 68″ is the full length of the loop. The scarf will hang 34″ inches after it is sewn together.
Step 2: Cut New Fabric to Desired Length and Width.
Because the width of the remnant fabric was wider, I chose to keep it wider than the Gap scarf to give the new scarf added volume. Note: I cut on the gray part of the fabric, not on the lace because it does not have the elasticity that the gray piece does.
Step 3: Pull on Sides of Fabric Until It Begins to Curl.
You don’t have to worry about hemming the fabric on the sides.
Step 4: Pin Ends of Fabric Into Place. Stitch.
Step 5: Voila! Project Complete!
And in less than 30 minutes!
If you’re a novice sewer, like me, go ahead and take a look at the remnant fabric section at Jo-Ann’s. You just never know what treasures you’ll find. And the risk is small because you know you got such a great deal on fabric.
