Hello Sew Caroline readers!
I’m super thrilled to be here today as part of Caroline’s 12 Days of Handmade Gifts series!
My name is Bev and I blog over at Flamingo Toes.
I love making handmade gifts – especially gifts that are quick and easy! That’s what I have for you today – this 1 Hour Floral and Lace Infinity Scarf!
This sweet scarf is super easy to put together and would make a great gift – you could make it up in any fabric combo!
I used a floral knit and a lace knit that I’ve had forever, and finished it with a little vintage trim. I love the extra little “something” the trim gives it!
You don’t have to use knit to make this, any fabrics will work. And you can make it up with a serger or a regular machine!
Here’s what you’ll need:
14″ x 60″ pieces of two contrasting fabrics (can piece together if necessary)
60″ length of trim
Begin by cutting your fabric into the 14″ x 60″ pieces. Most knits are 60″ wide so that makes it super easy.
If you need to piece your fabric to make 60″, do that now. You can sew a small seam and finish the ends, to make the seam as unnoticeable as possible.
Sew your trim to one long side of one of your fabrics. Make sure the trim is facing in towards the middle of the scarf.
Place your other fabric right side down on this piece and line up the long sides. Sew the long side together, just inside the seam you did with the trim. Finish and trim the edge of the seam.
Repeat for the other long side of the scarf.
Turn your scarf right side out. Line up the short ends of the scarf. Place the right sides of the lace knit fabric together. Begin sewing the pieces together, sewing up to the side seam, and sewing the floral short ends together. Continue through the other side seam and back onto the lace. Leave an opening of about 3″.
Pull the scarf flat so that the short end seams tuck in and there is a small opening in the center of the lace side.
Hand sew the opening closed and press the scarf.
That’s it!! Super easy right?
Now you can wear your cute new scarf!
I’m thinking of all sorts of other fabric combinations – I will definitely be making up more of these!
I hope you like it and will give it a try!
