In honor of my upcoming Strange Magic Press Event, I decided to make a Star Wars Infinity Scarf to wear to Skywalker Ranch!
Short Infinity Scarf Instructions
- 3/4 yard of 60″ wide lightweight knit fabric (such as jersey) –> Because the Star Wars material was only 44″ width, I decided to get 3/4 yard of two different lightweight cotton material…one being the Star Wars print (which is currently on sale for 40% off at JoAnn’s), the other an off-white with blue polka dots.
- straight pins
- sewing machine
- iron and ironing board
- matching thread
- Since I purchased two different materials, both 44″ wide, I had to refold them to be 44″ x 13″ and cut them in half. This gave me two pieces of Star Wars material (44″ x 13″) and two pieces of polka dot material (44″ x 13″).
- Sew the two pieces of Star Wars material together, with right sides of fabric facing each other, to make it one long piece (87″ x 13″) using a 1/2″ seam.
- Sew the two pieces of polka dot material together, with right sides of fabric facing each other, to make it one long piece (87″ x 13″) using a 1/2″ seam.
- Press the seam open, then pin the two long strips of fabric together.
- Sew the two long pieces of fabric together, with right sides of fabric facing each other. This will give you a final piece of fabric that is 87″ x 26″.
- Cut the fabric to be 60″ x 26″.
- Fold the fabric in half, with the right sides of fabric facing each other, matching the long cut edges, and pin together.
- Beginning 3″ from one end, stitch long edge in a 1/2″ seam. Stop stitching 3″ form the other end.
- Press the seam open.
- Turn the scarf right side out.
- Open the short ends of the scarf.
- Place short ends with right sides together, lining up cut edges, and pin.
- Stitch short edges together in a 1/2″ seam.
- Press seams open.
- Turn scarf so that seam allowances roll to the inside.
- Slip stitch opening closed.
