DIY infinity scarf

it's almost sweater weather! 

(sorry for the fuzziness... i was in a hurry since my camera was dying.)

*** NEW BLOG: Timberwolf . head on over once you've finished here. thank you! ***


so first of all, let me tell you about a few things i love:
  • autumn. gosh, i love it. if i could freeze the world in any season, it would be autumn. 
  • sweaters. especially when they're too big for me. big sweaters make me feel small, a feeling i don't really get that much.
  • infinity scarves. they are so much easier to deal with, and i love how they draw the eye up towards the face.
  • the market. i went to the market on yesterday, and i got 2 large pieces of fabric for 1 euro each. it's one of the best cheapo deals i've ever found. i'm going back on wednesday.
there's all sorts of other things i love, but they don't apply to this post. 

MOVING ON...

for this scarf, you will need:

a piece of fabric -- cut it to  23 in x 70 in (58 cm x 178 cm)

scissors

a sewing machine (or i suppose you can hand sew it... it will take forever though)


hem the long edges of the fabric. these will be the sides. i did it with a zig zag stitch that went off the edge. it worked nicely.
then fold it so that you are holding the two ends lined up, inside out. (demonstrated at the top of photo). now simply sew it shut there.
turn it right side out so that the final seam is hidden and wear it with pride.


come again soon, i'll miss you immensely.
