It was Friday and I had just a few minutes to stop by the D.I. (like the Salvation Army). Do you remember this post? I have been trying to find just the right fabric to try out the tube/infinity scarf because I had heard they were so easy. (From my cute neighbor/babysitter Lexi). Thanks Lexi! Anyway, I literally had just a second and came across this fabric and I was so excited. It was so retro yet feminine and exactly what I was looking for. For $1! **Insert angelic voices. I get excited over silly things.
There are other fabrics I found that I have other projects in mind for that I will share later. But for now, this is my 5 minute scarf. Okay, maybe seven. But I literally had enough time to make it, fix my hair, and do my make up by the time my husband got home after talking to him 10 minutes away from the house.
Because I was working with a remnant I kept the length that I had which was around 55″ and then measured out the thickness that I thought would be good for a scarf (in this case around twenty inches. Keep in mind you will be folding this fabric in half. I think next time I may go even wider. Do what works for you.
Step 2: Tear your fabric. Seriously. Make a cut and go for it.
Step 3: Fold fabric right sides together lengthwise and sew 1/4th an inch all the way down.
Step 4: After turning it right side out match up the seams for both ends so that you will be stitching it together to make one tube.
Step 5: Stitch it together and you’re done! I did a zig zag stick but left the seam raw. This scarf I actually ended up giving away. When I made the second one I just folded the seam over and stitched again to make a finished edge. Easy Peasy. You cannot mess this one up. And if you do, it is easy to hide!
Time for our date. Not the best picture, but we were in a hurry to get out and play hookey from bed time. Show me your creations, I would love to see them. I think I am going to make more of these. So easy to spice up an outfit in the winter season!
