How To Take 2.5 Yards of Fabric & Get 3 Looks (Part 1) – How To Make An Infinity Scarf

Sometimes I can’t stand it when I buy fabric for a project and there’s so much left over, yet I have no idea what to do with it. So, like many of you I’m sure, I have quite a bit of extra fabric lying around I could probably start my own fabric supply store on the side. Obviously this is great for when I need a certain type of fabric and it just so happens that I have it in my left over supply. But most of the time that’s not the case. So…today, (and for the next couple of days), I’m going to provide you with 3 DIY tutorials to use almost every piece of 2 and a 1/2 yards of fabric. Pretty great, eh? So here we go.

Today I will show you how to make an infinity scarf.

Here’s what you’ll need for all 3 projects.

2 and 1/2 yards of loosely woven fabric (for all 3 projects) – Fabric should be at least 49 ” wide

Matching thread


Fabric measuring tape

All purpose Pins

Hand sewing needle

Seam ripper


Step 1:  Lay your unfolded fabric out to cut.  Measure 21″ of width from left to right and cut down the center for the length. Take the left piece that measures 21 ” wide and cut it at 72 ” for your length of this project only. It just so happens that our dinning room table is 72 ” in length so this table helps out tremendously for this project. ( Important Note: Don’t cut the length of the remaining fabric on the right, you will need the length longer than 72 ” for the other two projects.) Set your remaining fabric aside for the next two projects.

Step 2:   Take the 21 ” width fabric and fold it in half, right sides together and pin it.

Step 3:   Machine-sew the long edge with a 1/2-inch-wide seam allowance.

Step 4:  Turn sewn fabric right side out.

Step 5:  Pin the right sides of the ends of your fabric together. Machine sew together using a 1/2-inch-wide seam allowance and leaving a 4-inch-long opening.

Step 6:  Hand-sew the opening shut.

And there you have it, your first look…a lovely infinity scarf.

Have a Fab You Bliss day!
