DIY infinity scarf . This is so easy and fun – a great DIY project for someone who is learning how to sew. In as little as 10 minutes, you can make your own infinity scarf from scratch.
An infinity scarf is one giant loop of fabric -that’s why it’s also called the circle scarf.
I made mine using a soft, lightweight pink double gauze – fabric also known as muslin.
It feels so nice against the skin, has such a nice drape, and I love the crinkled look! This is now my favorite accessory.
An infinity scarf is practical, stylish, and easy to wear. It’s ideal for traveling, for both casual or formal outfits, and it makes an excellent gift on any occasion.

DIY infinity scarf – fabric dimensions
It’s best to take an old scarf or a piece of fabric and wrap it around your neck twice or in whichever way you intend to wear it.
I used a 20 x 50 inches piece of double gauze fabric.
The finished scarf will measure 10 inches in width and approximately 49 inches in length and this is just perfect for me.
DIY infinity scarf – instructions
Fold the fabric piece lengthwise, right sides together. Pin the long edges, and sew to form a tube. There is no need for a seam finish since there will be no visible raw edges in the end.
Turn the fabric right side out. Join the two ends of the scarf, right sides together, to form a loop. Make sure that the seams are lined up.
Pin the seams, then sew around the circle as much as you can – remember to backstitch at the start and end. Leave a 2-3 inch opening, so you can turn your scarf right side out after you sew it.
Reach into the opening and pull the fabric right side out.
Sew the gap by hand using the ladder stitch, or, if you don’t mind the visible topstitching, you can fold the raw edges in and sew a straight stitch to close the opening.
That’s all! Isn’t it beautiful? 🙂
Happy sewing, everybody!
