Make Your Own Infinity Scarf

Some people (like Melody) may be shocked that I'm talking about sewing, but I do know a little bit about taking out the ole' needle and thread and sewing up a storm. Ok. Maybe that was a little over the top. This project is a no sewing machine necessary project. But you still need to get out your needle and thread. (I do have a sewing machine, but the thread is all bunched up and it gets annoying to always lug it over to Melody's or my mom's to have them untangle the thread every time it bunches.)

I love scarfs. I have almost a billion of them because I love pairing them with outfits. They are my "go to" for making a normal outfit a little different. However, I'm not a fan of the long tails that hang down and get in my way as I'm bending over to pick up Gavin or the awkward bunch in the front of my jacket (Do I leave the scarf out or do I tuck it in to my jacket?). 

I saw this idea from this blog where she just tied the ends of her scarf together to make an easy infinity scarf. What a great idea! No more loose ends hanging down, getting in my way!

I decided to take it one step further and sew up the edges. 

I chose two scarves that I love, but never wear and cut off the tassels at the end of each side. Then I simply lined up both edges and hand sewed them together. Easy as pie. 

Here is scarf #1: (Originally from Garage)

Here is scarf #2: (Originally from Old Navy)

Back to scarf #1:   

I love these so much I might just spend an afternoon and sew up all my scarves. 

Who else gets bothered by those annoying tails (are they even called tails?) that hang down and get in your way? 


  1. those tails always land in my food, or lucy sucks on them.... this is way better!

    1. I've worn these a couple different times since making them and I got to say, I love them way more than the ones with the tails. Less annoying! And less landing in food! :)

  2. I LOVE these, Heidi - fabulous! You sound like me. I have a bazillion scarves and I might have to spend part of my weekend making them into infinity scarves, which I love. So freaking cute. I'm also in the mood for a new scarf or too - hmm might have to venture out :)

    1. Thanks Amber! It doesn't take that much time at all and I'm sure if you have a sewing machine and know how to use it, it could even be faster. I still keep my eyes out for new scarves. Old Navy has some great ones out right now!

  3. Can you do this without a sewing machine
