I recently made infinity scarfs as end of the year teacher gifts. Ok, let’s set the record straight. I TRIED to make the scarfs myself, but when your Mother is a seamstress and you are at her house sewing, HA, you don’t get to sew yourself. Short version is I started them, she finished them because I wasn’t doing it right! To make these you need the material of choice cut to the size of 13 to 14 inchs wide and 76 or 82 inchs in length. The length is depends on your body size and shape, you may need it longer or you may need it shorter. You will also need a sewing machine, thread, and scissors. I used a serger to finish my sides, but you could do it with normal machine. To start off cut the material to the size you have decided on. After it is cut you need to sew the two end pieces together. To do this you fold each end together, make sure it is folded so that the cut ends can’t be seen. Then sew it together.

Once it is sewn together, use a serger to go around the length of the material, on each side. If you don’t have access to a serger, you can fold the edge over twice, so the cut part doesn’t show and then sew it. My suggestion would be to iron the fold before you sew, it just makes it so much easier to sew. Then sew it. Once you have done this to each side you are done. Your scarf is complete.
