I liked my blue infinity scarf make so much I just had to make another, this time in green!
I liked my blue infinity scarf make so much I decided to make one for myself. I used a slightly different pattern for this to make it a bit wider and shorter than the blue scarf. I again used Ombre trends by Heather Jacks for the Craft Cotton Company fat quarters to make this, I love this range the colours and patterns are gorgeous and are just so versatile. I think I might have to make one of these scarfs in the pink next!
Fabric was gifted by The Craft Cotton Company.
Sewing tutorial: Infinity scarf pattern
- Ombré trends by heather jacks fat for the craft cotton company fat quarter set in lime
- Choose your fabric:
Out of the fat quarter set pick out three fat quarters you want to use.
- Cutting out the fabric:
Fold the fat quarter in half so it measures 11 inches x 18 inches (if you fold it the other way you will end up with a longer and skinnier scarf). Cut along this fold two to give you two pieces of the fabric. Repeat with the other colours. You will now have 6 pieces of fabric, two of each colour.
- Sewing the pieces together:
First take two of the matching fabric pieces and place them wrong sides together and sew along the short edge, then repeat this with the next two pieces of matching fabric. This gives you a front and back piece.
Now take the final two pieces of matching fabric and sew one of the pieces to the top edge of the front piece and the other to the bottom edge of the back piece the back piece, make sure you place right sides of the fabric together to do this.
- Sewing the front and back together:
Place the front and back pieces right sides together and sew around all the edges, leaving a 3 inch gap at the end for turning out.
- Turning out and closing the seam:
Turn the scarf the right way around and slip stitch close the seam.
- Completing the scarf:
Take the two ends and slip stitch down the seams to sew them together.
