The first day of school is the official signal for fall, right? I mean it’s officially ok to start craving pumpkin spice and flannel as soon as September arrives.  While I was browsing the fabric aisles of Joann I came across the most snuggly flannel fabrics that made me want to wrap them around me and declare that fall had arrived.
Infinity scarfs are the perfect fall and winter accessory and with all the trendy flannel fabrics at Joann, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sew myself a new scarf.  If you are loving the plaid trend you might like this Buffalo Plaid Pillow and this adorable Oh Deer Onesie.howto-make-a-diy-infinity-scarfIn this tutorial, I will show you how to sew an infinity scarf and tips for adding trims or fringe to make it pop.  I will also show you a variation so you can either make a longer looping infinity scarf or a shorter cowl style version.

How to Make a DIY Infinity Scarf Tutorial

*Skip to the bottom to see the video tutorial

  1. For Cowl Infinity Scarf:  Cut fabric 22″ wide by the length of fabric (1 Yard or 36″)
  2. For Looping Infinity Scarf:  Cut fabric 22″ wide by the length of fabric (2 Yards or 72″)
  3. Pin or clip fringe onto the right side of the fabric.  Being sure to align the trim edge with the raw edge of the fabric.  The black fringe shown has a longer ribbon edge for sewing that I didn’t want to be exposed so I pulled the trim so it hung off the edge by 1/2″ and fold it back over on itself so that the folded edge would be included in the seam allowance.
  4. Fold the flannel over on the trim to make a sandwich with the trim in the middle of flannel layers.  Pin or clip in place.
  5. Sew using a 1/2″ seam down the long edge of the flannel.  Be sure to backstitch at both the beginning and end.
  6. Turn the flannel right sides out so that the trim is now showing on the outside.
  7. Join the ends of the flannel tube together so that the right sides of each end are aligned.  It will be a little awkward as you sew because you are sewing the inside seams from the outside. Sew as far as possible to join the ends.  When you are no longer able to sew backstitch to secure.
  8. To close the remaining opening, place a line of fabric fuse on the seam allowance.  Alternatively, you could hand stitch closed.
  9. Iron in place to secure.
  10. You are all finished.  Go wear your scarf in style!

Very cute! I am thinking the pictures above are the Cowl version of the scarf. Will you post a picture of the Looping Infinity version? It would help me decide which to make! ;)
