DIY Infinity Scarf

 

I woke up this morning to my favorite sound: rain. It was beautiful. And it continued all day. Gray and rainy. Mmmm… Jason was gone, I woke up early and had the house to myself. I had decided weeks ago I was going to try and alter this old Mexican dress I had but never wore. It didn’t turn out so well.. It can be salvaged-I think- by someone that actually knows how to sew. It looks really good on the hanger but I took in a little too much in the hips and there is a lot of extra fabric in the back and the seams are tucking. Blech. 🙁 The fabric is rather poor, which always helps.

So, I moved on to my fail safe DIY: an infinity scarf. No one- I mean NO ONE- can screw this up.

*What you’ll need:
-an old sweater
-scissors
-sewing machine (optional)

STEP ONE:
Lay your sweater out flat.

STEP TWO:
Stretch out the arms and find the point at the bottom of sleeve. See where the tip of the scissors are pointing?

STEP THREE:
Cut all the way across to the point under the other sleeve.

STEP FOUR:
Put on your new circle scarf!

I say sewing machine optional because you can sew a seam so it doesn’t unravel or sew on some ribbon or lace trim. I opted for the super easy route. This was the sweater I wore in this post but I unfortunately decided to wash it with brand new jeans and ruined it. 🙁 It lives on!

Go make your own and send me a picture! This is my second but surely not my last!
