Five Minute Repurposed Infinity Scarf

This past fall I bought an infinity scarf, my first. Let me tell you, I LOVE scarves, especially when it’s chilly. I instantly fell in love with it! The greatest thing about an infinity scarf is that it stays put. You can easily make an infinity scarf with fleece or cozy fabric. I decided to upcycle some of my old scarves and turn them into infinity scarves.

Here’s What You Need:

*Fabric that is at least 8″x65″ or old scarves

*Sewing Machine




If you are using a scarf and your scarf has fringe on the bottom carefully snip it off. Overlap the ends of the scarf one end on top of the other to make a continuous loop. Overlap about 1/2 to 1″ and pin. Top stitch down on the top of the scarf close to the edge, backstitching at the beginning and end. Snip excess threads. Now flip the scarf inside out. Topstitch the other side down close to the edge. Clip excess threads. Now turn right side out again. Enjoy!

Both of these scarves only took me about 15-20 minutes to complete from start to finish. I love them! Now I can wear the scarves that were always slipping off of my neck and making me cold. If you don’t have old scarves you wish to sew, you can always purchase fleece or sweater knit material and stitch it up the same way. It’s a fun and easy sewing project. So next time you have a cold rainy afternoon, pull out your sewing machine and revamp your old scarves. Your neck will thank you!

Happy Crafting!
