Infinity Scarf

INSTRUCTIONS To make the fleece infinity scarf


The first step is to cut the fabric 18" wide by the width of fabric (WOF).  Sometimes fabric store does not cut the fabric straight.  So, align your fabric selvage along a line on the cutting mat so it's straight.  Using a ruler, cut off a small amount so that the edge is straight. 

Next, align the straight edge and the selvage along two lines on the mat.  Measure 18" from the previously cut edge.  Use your ruler to cut straight across the fabric.  This will give you a piece of fabric which is 18" x 59-60".

Cut off the selvage from the non-folded short edge (18" edge) of the fabric.


Fold the fabric in half, lining up the long sides with right sides together.  Pin along the edge to hold it in place.

Fleece Infinity Scarf Tutorial - Sewing Sides Together With the sewing machine, sew the long side together using a 1/2" seam allowance. Reinforce the beginning and ending stitches by back-tacking. Back-tacking is stitching a few stitches forward, then stitch backward a few stitches and then begin stitching forward again.

The scarf is now a long tube of fabric.
