Funky "O" Scarves

May 3, 2010

I have been obsessed for quite sometime with "O"/infinity scarves (basically scarves with no end). I bought a deep plum one from Target a year ago and wear it all the time! It's so comfy since its made from a cotton jersey and really light so I can wear it all year round. I got to thinking to myself one day at church while wearing my fave scarf...."I could totally make these and have a plethora of wonderful scarves at my disposal!" So that is what I did, I went to Jo-Ann's and they had the some funky jersey material on sale for around $3.00 a yard! So I bought a yard of each of my faves and their the fabric sat for months ;). Until this past week when I was determined to get through some of the sewing projects I had to do!

This is how they turned out!!

{ Super fun and funky for spring huh!!? These are so super easy to make you could do it blind-folded!}

Directions:

1. Acquire 1 yard of cotton jersey material.
2. Cut 2 10in. by 1 yard strips
3. Sew one width side and both length sides together inside out.
4. Flip right side in.
5. Place previously sewn width edge into the un-sewn width edge creating a sandwich.
6. Turn raw edges of the un-sewn edge in creating a covered edge.
7. Pin together to prevent fabric from slipping.
8. Sew down the middle of both edges to secure your "O".
9. Wear it all around town!!

So what do you guys think? This was such a fun and rewarding project my brain is already turning on what I am going to wear them with! Also I was thinking this would be such a great gift for a friend or for Mother's Day, and super inexpensive it cost me $3.00 for each scarf that's cheaper than 75% off at a department store! And you can bet no one will have the same one as you do!! Thanks for stopping by and hope that you guys are all having a great week! Let me know if you have any questions I am always happy to help! Love, love.

  2. SOO Cute:) Oh if only I knew how to sew! Such a cute, trendy piece-LOVE IT!

    ReplyDelete
  3. wow...I read your directions over and over and I think I finally have it. Am I correct that the finished "O" is 1 yard long? And if so, why didn't you cut only one piece that was 20" wide, rather than 2 10" pieces? I am going to try this, yours came out wonderful!! Wish me luck..haha

  40. What a creative gal...I love creative women...I love blogs...better than reading a magazine...Your scarves came out great and the pattern is very easy to follow. There are so many women out there that need a place for their scarves....drawers get full and who can hang them on a hanger?

  76. Love this, but I didn't find any jersey cotton at Joann's. Even after asking a store worker to help. Guess I'll try another store!

    ReplyDelete
  77. You should try to put up a video on how to do this! Because I would so try it out if I knew how to do what you were saying.

    ReplyDelete
  78. for those like me that need a visual of how this is done, do you have anything i can check out? These are darling!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Are you sure the O is only one yard around? One yard will not go around your neck twice like in your photos. Jersey is usually 60in wide. Did you cut the fabric across the width so each piece was 10in by 60in?

    ReplyDelete
  80. or you can just take an old t shirt cut across the chest area (underneath the sleeves and neck line)and put it around your neck:)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Awesome idea. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Love your scarves. That fabric is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love this and want to make some. I think it is very easy but steps 4,5 and 6 are confusing me. Could you give more detail or pictures. Thank you.
