Infinity Scarf - Southwestern Minty Warmness


Good weekend to you all!

I had a little fit of must-sew-something-immediately yesterday (don't you love that??) so I scanned my fabric shelves for something that wanted to be made into something.  We were going to a fire at a friends house last night, so I guess I might have had bundling up in the back of my mind.  This Navajo-ish, southwestern flannel was all "hey, I want to go to that fire!" and I was all "ok!", so this infinity scarf was born!




So the print is flannel, and I had a small amount of super soft cotton batiste in like the exact same color - just several shades lighter.  I LOVE these fabrics together!  The batiste was just barely sheer, so I sandwiched plain white cotton muslin in between the two, so it would be opaque.  That gave the scarf a really nice weight, it's warm and toasty.


Please excuse the signs of Winter deck neglect...  

I don't have a tutorial for this - there are several great ones out there - no need to reinvent the wheel.  Here are a few that I know of, if you want specific instructions:

H is for Handmade
The Cottage Home
Maybe Matilda
True Bias

Roughly, mine measured (before sewing) 64" x 12".  I had to cut the batiste into two 32ish" x 12" pieces and then I sewed those together to get my 64" piece.  Easy peasy.  I really recommend this project for anyone new to sewing - it's very easy and very fast!  And you can combine really any types of fabric you want to.





Hey I didn't crop my head out!  :)

So there you have it!  A super quick, super warm-yet-springy infinity scarf.  Loves it.


Have a good rest of your weekend all!  I'm going to go poking about in my yard for signs of life because I saw daffodils yesterday when I was driving around.  :)
