I’m a fan of scarfs. It’s an accessory that is both practical and fashionable. Over the years, I have acquired quite a collection.This winter I decided to start a collection for L by making her several infinity scarfs (because infinity scarfs are in and every 2 year old needs a scarf collection?). These are super easy and quick to sew. Add a monogram or an applique and they will make a sweet personalized gift.
- 24″x48″ piece of fabric (this measurement is for a 2 year old)
- matching thread
Step 1: Pin the right sides of your fabric together lengthwise then sew along the edge. If your fabric has a pattern like mine, try to match the pattern as best as you can during the pinning process.
Step 2: Turn the long rectangular tube inside out. The plaid matched much better second time around.
Step 3: Fold and pin a 0.5″ seam towards the inside of the tube. Sew the ends together right at the edge of the pinned seam. I hand stitched mine with a blind stitch. You can do this on a machine as well.
Yup, just 3 steps! I told you this is a super easy and quick project. With a few measurement adjustments you can make one for any age. I measured around L’s neck to ensure that the end product left plenty of room. If you are concerned about a choking hazard with your little one, sew the ends of the tube shut individually with a blind stitch. You can then tie the scarf with a lose knot in the back for a faux infinity scarf look.
