DIY: A Colorblock Infinity Scarf Tutorial
When I wear my zebra/polka dot infinity scarf it never fails to draw compliments. Once people find out I made it, often the next question is "would you make one for me?" While I rarely sew for hire these days, I do enjoy sewing items to give to others, especially these colorblocked infinity scarfs. They are simple, yet each is unique depending on the fabrics chosen. This year I sewed a some as Christmas gifts for a few girlfriends. Here's how to make one of these cute and easy infinity scarfs for yourself. Fabric: For one scarf, you'll need one yard each of two coordinating fabrics at least 45" wide. Choose a lightweight fabric, such as voile, chambray, linen, rayon or even flannel. My zebra/polka dot scarf was sewn using a polyester blouse weight fabric. A lightweight knit would work also. Heavier fabric would create a lot of bulk at the neckline. Each piece of fabric should measure 45" x 36". If your fabric is wider, cut it to 45".
