In Wellington, the wind can mean that you need a thick wide scarf to snuggle into while you’re walking around. I couldn’t find one that was wide enough, so I decided to make my own.
You can buy infinity scarves, but they aren’t cheap (around $40-60). I made one by watching this ‘how-to’ video. I spent a grand total of $21 getting my merino in the Global Fabrics sale.
For this super simple project, you need:
- fabric that you love, length 24 inches, width 54-60 inches (stretch is what I used)
- measuring tape
- good pair of scissors
- a sewing needle
- of course, your sewing machine.
Here’s how mine turned out. For mine, it was a variation on the video tutorial. Basically instead of folding over the same piece of merino, I cut out two wide pieces in different colours. I then followed the basic instructions on the video.
Try it out and see how easy it is!
