It’s officially fall, but still hot in Texas! Now that the nights are starting to bringing a chill, having fun, layering go-to scarfs in your wardrobe is perfect this time of year.
I picked up some light-weight, gauzy fabric with my Mom a few months ago and thought it would be lovely for a simple infinity scarf.
Supplies: 2 yards of light-weight fabric, thread, scissors, pins and an iron.
Begin by cutting your fabric along the long-edge. Then fold the fabric in half (again along the long edge), place the right sides together and pin in place. Since we will want to hide the seam, we will create a french seam. First, sew a 1/4″ seam allowance.
Then, trim the seam allowance down to 1/8″. Press the seam to one side. Then turn the fabric so the right side is facing out. Now, sew along the same edge again, this time with the right side up at a 1/4″ seam allowance. This will trap the original seam and allowance in the fold, creating a beautiful, seamless edge.
Now, just just sew the outer edges. You can add a decorative edging with pom-pom ribbon or keep the edges clean and simple by sewing at 1/8″.
