Who is sick of those “I’m so ready for fall posts”? Aww, too bad. You get another one.
I’m normally a summer girl but this summer was just too hot. I’m ready for cooler weather…until it actually comes and then I’ll be whining that I want warmth…like any good Iowan does.
I recently sewed this fun flannel infinity scarf. I’m on a sewing roll.
Nothing says fall like flannel. I think Nate is glad I’ve traded a pair of ridiculously ugly flannel pajama pants for this flannel scarf.
I sometimes wear something other than grey shirts and jeans. Sometimes. It would look better with a long sleeved shirt but it 90 degrees when I took this photo. I only sacrifice so much for this little blog of mine.
The scarf cost me $4.00 and 30 minutes of time. I can’t wait to make more!
Anyone with a sewing machine can make this. Seriously. Dust that baby off. You only have to sew sort of straight lines. You can do this!
You will need some fabric of your choice, some thread, and a sewing machine. I used a yard of fabric to make this scarf. It’s a little large. I think I will like the bulk once it cools down and I’m sipping hot cocoa and pretending to watch Hawkeye football. Oh, Fall.
Start by cutting two 18” x 40-45” rectangles. You don’t have to be exact. I used the length that was provided by the flannel fabric which was about 43”.
Pin the right sides together and sew the long edges. You will be left with a long tube.
Turn inside out. Bring the two ends together and pin the inner two layers right sides together.
Sew together. Turn the scarf inside out and pin the back sides right side together.
Sew the end together leaving a 4-5 inch gap in the middle-ish.
Turn the scarf right side out through the 4-5 inch gap.
Hand stitch the opening closed and enjoy your lovely flannel infinity scarf!
Feel free to share it with your favorite friend.
