TUTORIAL : Twisted Infinity Scarf

Everyone loves infinity scarf. It's the "grab n go n look fab" kind of accessories. So, recently I've been making my version of infinity scarves. You can use any kind of fabric, cotton, flannel, georgette, crepe, chiffon, etc.  I happened to have these saree blouse fabrics which I got from my MIL. Saree blouse comes with the saree. It's usually less than a meter (80 -90 cm) of fabric which has to be cut off from the main saree. 

I thought of sharing with you how I made my scarves. This is a quick project which make a perfect gift. So, here we go:

What you need:
1. A piece of fabric (depends on how WIDE and LONG of your scarf). and since I'm making from a saree scrap my piece is 80 cm x 115 cm


2. Sewing machine and sewing supplies (matching thread, handsewing needle, etc)

Let's get started:

1. This is my fabric. It's georgette fabric with fancy dots ;). Make sure you straighten your fabric, which means BOTH ENDS have the SAME WIDTH. 



2.  Now, FOLD it once and pin it. ( you can see the selvedges on both sides) .


if you make a longer and wider one, and you'll fold it length wise -  selvedges meet the selvedges. 

3. Sew 0.5" along the pinned side to make a TUBE. 


4. Turn your tube inside out. Lay it flat (iron it if necessary, if you use cotton esp) and now match the open side of the tube by TWISTING the fabric. 


So the SEWN seams will meet the FOLDED sides.



5. Match the middle seam and the sewn seam RIGHT SIDE together and PIN. You can pin all the way around, or like me, I usually put 3 pins at the beginning. 



6. Now start sewing 0.5" along the tube's opening. 



when the opening is getting narrower, you just PUSH the whole SCARF inside the opening. Keep sewing and LEAVE 2"-3" as a turning hole. 

7. You're almost there...now, pull out the fabric and see...you're almost done it ^_^. 


8. Closing the gap with slip stitch using a matching thread. 



And VOILA...wear it as you like ^_^


It's easy peasy, isn't it?

This scarf and a lot more is available at my SHOP.

Until then..

Happy Sewing
