I love the scarf I’m showing how to make this week! It is cute and functional! Not only can it keep you warm, but also hold your phone, ID, gloves, etc. So handy when traveling or if you happen to be wearing jeans like mine with fake front pockets (why do they even bother?!?).
The scarf is simple to make and only involves a few steps.
To get started you need a zipper (8 to 11 inches) piece of fabric measuring about 18 x 70 inches. I had a beautiful vintage piece of fabric I thrifted last year. I’m not sure if it was a table cloth or a light weight throw blanket, but it had lovely tassels along two edges (that I saved!) My fabric was long enough on it’s own, but if you are using regular yardage you need to get a full yard and cut it in half so it is two pieces measuring 18 inches (a half yard) by the width of the fabric (selvage to selvage). Then put the two pieces right sides together and sew to attach along the 18 inch side. You can then trim it down to 70 inches or leave it at it’s full length to make a longer scarf.
Once your fabric is the right size you are ready to sew your scarf together! Click HERE to follow the step-by-step how to video!
If you want to make an regular infinity scarf that doesn’t have the zipper you can follow the same instructions. Simply sew the entire seam instead of stopping short to add the zipper.
