Hey I'm Kilee from ONE little MOMMA with a quick and easy, NEW scarf tutorial for you today. I am all about scarves in the Fall and Winter and have recently started to really enjoy infinity scarves. I found this fabulous fleece remnant at Jo Ann's last year and because of its awkward size (2'x 5'), I never found a use for it. I recently pulled it out again and decided that it would make a great infinity scarf. That is, until I started to put it together. What I thought would be quick and easy actually wasn't and rather than look up someone else's tutorial, I decided to reinvent the wheel. Instead I have for you, the Bandanna Scarf! (And it really easy quick and easy!!)
Start by measuring out your fleece or fabric of choice. You will need a 20" x 20" square. Fold it diagonally so that you have a triangle with the fold at the top.
Next overlap the two corners of the folded edge by about four inches and use pins to form a triangle. See below.
Use a straight stitch to sew a triangle- stitching the overlapped corners together. This will reinforce the closure for the scarf and leave no flapping edges.
And that is it!! The scarf will now be sewn shut in a circle that will fit over your head and sit like a bandanna. Adjust the scarf and you are ready to go. I love the tribal print on this fleece but I'd love to make a bandanna scarf in a plaid like this or this.
I love my bandanna scarf so much that I whipped one up for my baby too! His measures 12" x12" and rather than sew the ends together- I just added Velcro to the corners. It looks so cute on him!
