We are just a couple of weeks away from Christmas, which means my little sewing workshop is open and in full swing! It’s time to pull out my sewing machine and fabric stash and get busy DIY-ing gifts for family and friends.
I did some sewing over the weekend, including making another infinity scarf (my collection is getting pretty big!), and sewing another couple of zipper pouches (also a big collection of these).
My husband was so helpful as to get the kids out of the house a bit so I could record step-by-step videos of how to make each of these simple projects. You can watch the video below or scroll on down to the process pictures and skip the video.
I love making both scarves and zipper pouches for gifts because they’re so easy to make and so easy to customize! You can also find even more DIY gift ideas in this post.
How to Sew An Infinity Scarf in 10 Minutes
You’ll need to buy some jersey knit material for these scarves. The knit is great because you don’t have to worry about finishing the edges since they do not unravel.
Plus, if you get them to cut the fabric to the right length, you won’t even need to cut it again at home!
JoAnn’s and Hobby Lobby both have so many options of knit fabrics. You can see a few of my favorite scarves in the picture above. I love the versatility of the solids and love the fun pop of color and patterns with the prints.
Of course, I also just love how my scarves help to keep me warm in the winter too!
Good news! You can make an infinity scarf for less than $10 and in less than 10 minutes.
One cut. And one line of stitching 20 inches. And that’s it!
10 Minute Infinity Scarf Tutorial
- 1 yard jersey knit fabric
- coordinating thread
1. Fold the fabric in half and cut a piece 28″ x 20″ (unfolded 56″ x 20″) —see picture below.
To make a scarf for a child, cut a piece 20″ x 15″ (unfolded 40″ x 15″). Follow the directions below.
2. Sew the short sides together (opposite the fold) to form a loop.
3. Flip the loop so the right side of the seam is facing out. Stretch it a bit and the edges will roll in. Fold it in half widthwise and loop it around your neck twice. And you’re done!
