Instant Infinity Scarves

While anyone has their supplies cut at the sewing store the associates at the cutting counter almost always ask: “what are you making?” So I always ask: “what do you see everyone making?” On my last visit to the store, the sales associate said she was seeing infinity scarves as a popular sewing project these days. On that same trip I spotted a new fleece: double sided micro fleece. Love it! (And coincidentally a great fabric for an infinity scarf, thus inspiration for this post.)

Double sided micro fleece

Because we still have some chilly winter weather ahead, there’s good reason to make and wear a super easy cuddly fleece infinity scarf! The following how-to is a real breeze.

Get ready: All you need is 6″ (1/6 yard) of fleece. Use the full width (60″).

CUTTING TIP:  Using dressmaker shears, cut with full cutting strokes for the smoothest continuous edge. Short cutting motions will make a choppy cut edge.

Stitch ends together:

Overlap ends. Using contrast or matching thread, zig zag stitch along edge.

Overlap ends 1/4″. Using contrast or matching thread, zig zag stitch over edge.

 

Infinity scarves are a great year round fashion accent. When shopping for scarf fabric, look for a fabric that looks acceptable on both sides.  A fabric with a no sew edge makes for a super instant scarf. A fabric with soft drape is a must! Happy hunting!

    I bought this fabric too and finished a jacket and did a search for double sided fleece fabric ideas for scarves. Think I will make an infinity scarf too.

    Love your fabric. I can not find double sided contesting fabric anywhere. Can you share where you bought this fabric?

      Hi Elizabeth! I bought that fabric at Joanne Fabrics a while ago. It may not be available anymore, thus I will need to re-write this blog post! I will search for that fabric online and get back to you here. Thanks for letting me know! e
