DIY: infinity scarf


Aren't infinity scarves great?  They serve their main function (keepin that neck warm) without all the fuss and hustle and bustle of a regular scarf.  Plus, it makes for a much more polished look, without ends and fray and stuff just hanging out all over the place!

I have a pretty good supply of regular scarves and decided I needed to transform a couple of them into infinity scarves.  Super easy - I recommend you try.






All you'll need is your old scarf and basic sewing supplies.

1. Cut off the edges of your scarf
2. Fold the edge in, iron flat and then sew down the edge (do this for both sides)
3. Place the two ends together with one end overlapping the other by 1/2 inch.  Place pins along the edge to hold it in place and then sew down the edge.
4. Viola! Piece of cakey






To infinity and beyond!
