Infinity…not as long as you might think.

A Sweater Made Better
Holidays on Ice

When I moved to the south, I naturally thought temperatures would err on the side of too warm, with blazingly hot summers and mild winters.  I was mistaken.  Oh yes…the summers are hideously hot and humid, but winters still get frigid.  This is one of those times.  Brrrrrrrr.  So here I am, smack (yes, smack) in the middle of a cold snap in “Famously Hot” Columbia, SC (that’s our slogan…pretty awful, huh?), with temperatures dipping into the low teens. 

I wanted a soft, comfy infinity scarf to wear today, but didn’t have one I liked.  No prob.  I knew I could make one in 10 minutes.  First, I took this scrap from a previous refashion.

Hi. I'm Mr. Scrap!

What we have here is the leftover bit from a shortened dress.  I saved it, because I loooooove how soft the fabric is.  It would feel oh-so-nice wrapped around my neck all day long.  :)

I first took this strip of fabric, folded it in half, and pinned the raw edges together (with it inside-out).

pinning across the length of my soon-to-be-scarf!

Then, I ran the length of the fabric through my machine, creating a tube of fabric.

Hot needle-in-fabric action!

I turned the tube of fabric right side out, so the raw edge was hidden.

Tube 'o Fabric

Then, I took each end of my newly created fabric tube and tucked one into the other, folding the outside one in to hide the raw edge.

Almost done!

I ran this through my machine, and Viola!  I have a new scarf that I’m quite taken with.  It’s not a very long one, but you can see how easy it would be to make a longer one from the bottom of a fuller skirt. 

Warm and Cozy! :)

My lil shawty scarf suits me just fine.  :) 

Ok dear reader…have you entered the Coco Before Chanel DVD Giveaway yet?  Cuz you need to.  Time is running out, my friend.  Winning stuff feels amazing.  Don’t you want to feel amazing?  I thought so.  :)

Cheers!

  1. I for one think our city’s slogan is quite good, Famoulsy Hot. And my agency didn’t come up with it — ADCO a few streets over did. Anyway, nice work on the scarf.

  2. Hope you’re fine with it: i pinned this idea onto my “crafty…very stylish” board on Pinterest ~ WONDERFUL use for long fabric scraps, or even short but wide ones!!!! …Also pinned your “Bacon-Wrapped Pork Chops” {not on that board though! *ha ha* That is on my “So Yummy!!!!” board}, giving you full credit, of course!! 8-)
