Last week I mentioned my obsession with crochet. I'm also currently obsessed with Hershey's Hugs and sewing infinity scarves. The infinity scarf thing is becoming an issue. The Hugs are not.
My latest scarf need was an animal print scarf.
This obession is the direct result of this pin. Stupid, beautiful Pinterest.
I had to have that animal print scarf.
Ike felt just as strongly about the situation.
Non-cheesy animal print scarves are hard to come by. The ones I did find were like $30. Yep. Not gonna happen. I picked up some ol' animal print fabric at Joann's and whipped me up two beauties. One is solid animal print. The other is a two sided infinity scarf with some dots mixed in. I like that the two side one can show more dot or more leopard depending on my ever changing mood.
Here's how to make your own infinity scarf!
Start by cutting two 9" x 54-58" rectangles. I used 58" on the animal print only scarf. I used 54" on the dot/animal print combo. I personally like the 54" but it is a tighter fit.
Pin the right sides together and sew along the long edges. You'll be left with a long tube.
Turn inside out. Pin the two inner layers right sides together.
This part is a little hard to explain but it's easier than my old way. Start sewing around in a circle. Keep pulling the fabric and sew until you are left with about a 2 inch hole. (For alternate directions that might be easier to understand, read my flannel infinity scarf tutorial!)
Hand stitch that opening shut and your scarf is complete. $4-5 and about 15 minutes. Not too shabby!
I'd take a poll of who modeled the scarves best. But I hate losing.
What's your latest addiction?
