Stay on trend and do something good for the soul with this beautiful easy to make infinity scarf.
September is National Ovarian Cancer Month and since teal is the support color for ovarian cancer we chose this gorgeous pattern called Undersea Shimmer from Jardine Jardine with Third and Wall. The fabric we selected is an organic cotton interlock knit and it is oh so soft and stretchy – perfect to giveaway to a cancer patient. More on how you can participate in this scarf giveaway campaign later. Let’s get sewing!
- 1 yard of soft fabric with some stretch to it
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
- Straight pins
Fold the fabric in half with the right sides together, across the width. Stitch along the long edge of the fabric with a ½” seam allowance.
Turn the tube right side out. Pin the short ends, right sides together, to each other. You are not sewing the shorts ends shut, rather you are pinning one end of the tube to the other. You will pin and sew in a circle, leaving about 4” open for turning. If you’re adding a label, pin the label into the seam at this time. Stitch the circle as far as you can.
Topstitch the opening closed.
The finished scarf!
