Sometimes you just need a pop of color and a quick sew, and today’s frayed edge infinity scarf tutorial fits the bill on both counts.
Made from only 1/2 yard of flannel, this is a quick project; in fact, I sewed this one approximately 20 minutes before we left the house.
So here’s how you do it. Start with 1/2 yard of 44″ wide flannel – so you have a piece of fabric 18″ x 44″. Cut the fabric so you have two 9″ wide by 44″ long strips. Place those two strips WRONG sides together and sew French seams on each end to join them into a loop.
A French Seam is made like this:
- Pin pieces together with wrong sides together, using a 1/4″ seam
- Flip the pieces to right sides together, and stitch the seam again
- The raw edges should be encased inside the seam
- If you look at it from the side, you can see the raw edges inside the seam
And once your seams are sewn, fold the seam allowance to one side and topstitch so it lays flat.
To prevent the edges from fraying forever, sew a line 1/2″ away from the raw edge on each side of the scarf.
I wrapped the scarf twice for these pictures, and it’s the perfect lightweight accessory to keep my neck warm without adding a lot of bulk.
