as promised last week here the tutorial for a woven infinity scarf. This one requires 4 seams so its quick to do and suitable for beginners, all you need to be able to is sewing pretty straight lines with the sewing machine. If you are not sure about that, take some scrap of fabric and exercise. You will notice later, mine are a little wavy as well, so do not worry about that to much 😉
You can also check my tutorial about a jersey infinity scarf.
What you will need:
- 0.5m/0.5 yard of woven fabric at least 1.4m/55inch wide
- fitting sewing thread
- sewing machine
my fabric folded in half selvedges placed on each other
then I cut the selvedges off
and pinned the cut edges together, right side of the fabric outside
and sewed a few mm from the edge and parallel to it
always securing my seam with a few stitches forward and backward at beginning and end
then I ironed those mm apart
because its easier that way to fold it right at that seam. Wrong side out this time.
and then I sewed it again parallel to the original seam a few mm wider then before
when I turned it right side out again I had a clean seam
and a clean seam on the inside. now I folded the open edge 0.5cm up into the wrong side
and folded that over again
and pinned it in place
from the right side
and pinned all around
same to the other side, of course you can finish one side first and then do the other.
and sewed about 0.3cm parallel to the fold, so it goes through all 3 layers
sewing both sides this way
and it is finished
looks like this
