Easy DIY Infinity Scarf

I'm so excited for fall and the cozy, layered clothes that come along with the season.  Infinity scarves are my current obsession.  I love how they can transform a t-shirt and jeans into a very put together look.  I'm also loving the plaid, flannel prints that are trendy this year.  I don't love the price tags of some of the cute scarves I've seen so I decided to try my hand at a DIY scarf.  It was so easy!



What you need:

  • 1 yard flannel fabric
  • Coordinating thread
Steps:
  1. Start by cutting two 18"x33" rectangles from your yard of fabric.
  2. Lay the two pieces of fabric one on top of the other.
  3. Sew along one of the short sides (about 1/4" from the edge of the fabric and press along the seam you just sewed.  Now you have one long piece of fabric.
  4. Fold the piece of fabric in half long ways (or "hot dog" style).
  5. Sew down the long side opposite the fold.  Now you have a long tube.
  6. Turn the tube right side out and press the fabric.
  7. Take one of the short ends and fold the fabric into itself about 1/2-3/4".
  8. Insert the other short end into the short end that you just folded to create a big loop.
  9. Sew the two short ends together (about 1/4" from the edge of the folded short end).  You will be sewing through 4 layers of fabric (the two inside the other two).
  10. Wrap that cozy scarf around your neck!!
