infinity scarf

This is a project that I've been wanting to do for a long time. For one, it's super simple & quick. Two, it's an infinity scarf. Enough said. Seriously, who doesn't like infinity scarves? This is the kind of project that can be done on a machine, by hand, or even with a no-sew adhesive. Since I'm the instant-gratification type, I used my sewing machine. Plus I've been neglecting my machine too much, & it's nice to visit her every now & then (yes, it's a her, & yes, she is a magnificent Kenmore from the 1960s). 

To make your own infinity scarf, you'll only need:
  • 1/2 a yard of knit fabric (72" width)
  • Thread of a coordinating color, or a no-sew adhesive
  • A needle or a sewing machine

First, fold your fabric in half lengthwise, wrong-side out.

Sew a seam up the side, making a tube-shape out of your fabric. If you're using a stretchy fabric (like knit), you'll want to use a zig-zag stitch & keep the fabric taut as you sew. This will allow the seam to move with the fabric when it is stretched. 

If you're sewing by hand, allow for some slack when you tie off your stitch.

Turn your tube right-side out, & pin both raw edges of your tube together. Then sew across with a zig-zag stitch, keeping it taut as before. 

I love the soft blue of this fabric. I think it embraces the spring that is steadily upon us.
