DIY Friday : Infinity Scarves
This week on "DIY Friday" I made three infinity scarves. The weather is getting colder and I need some more scarves to keep me warm :)
I followed step by step tutorial from Simplicity, Sew Your Own Infinity Scarf . It was a very clear tutorial and fast to make.
I chose three knit fabrics from stash ( yellow & grey stripes knit jersey, deep blue and white light weight knit jersey) and I bought one more light weight knit cotton in emerald blue.
But in the end I made three and I left behind the white one. I will work on it another time.. :)
As I mentioned before, it was easy and fast project to make. I have done my three scarves in less than two hours :)
The tutorial were clear and easy to follow. My scarves are based on the short version, here is the link.
I made my first scarf with emerald blue fabric, the size is exactly same as the instruction said. I cut my fabric 60" width and 25" wide, the finished scarf measures 59" around and 12" deep.
And then I made my two other scarves in different sizes (same in wide but different in width). I decided to make it different in sizes because my fabrics length are different.
I cut my yellow and grey stripes fabric 50" width and 25" wide, the finished scarf measures 49" around and 12" deep.
And for deep blue fabric, I cut 70" width and 25" wide. The finished scarf measures 69" around and 12" deep.
The picture below is my sewing in progress, I suggest you to click the link for clear tutorial Simplicity - Sew Your Own Infinity Scarf. And I am sure you will love to make for yourself :)
And here is the final scarves that I made. You can see very clear that their size are different. I love them all and for sure I will wear them a lot in colder weather :)
