Worth Talking About Wednesday: DIY Infinity Scarf

Just when you thought you knew what to expect with “Worth Talking About Wednesday,” I’m mixing up the template a little bit this week: Rather than showcase a few things that are worth talking about, I am focusing on just one topic this week.

I know. Hold onto your seats.

DIY Infinity Scarf

This is worth talking about for a few reasons.

  1. Infinity scarves are neat concepts, but dang-it if they aren’t expensive. It’s a circle of comfortable fabric — why does that require are $20+ price tag?
  2. This is a very easy DIY project even with no sewing machine. I did it. You can do it.
  3. My Martha Stewart streak doesn’t seem to be letting up.

What you need:

  • Old sweater, sweatshirt or t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Sewing pins
  • Embroidery floss
  • Embroidery needle

Directions:

  • Lay the sweater out on the floor.

  • Cut a horizontal line across the sweater, just underneath the sleeves.
  • Fold that in half vertically to measure two equal sections. Cut across. You should now have two equally sized tubes.

  • Horizontally cut each tube. Now you should have two, long and equally sized rectangles.
  • Thread the needle. Pin the end of one rectangles to the other, so the ends are overlapping about 1/2″.

  • Sew the ends together with a running stitch. Overlap at the sides, so the fabric doesn’t fray.
  • Repeat with other ends of the rectangles, forming a large circle.

This took me barely any time at all. Love those kinds of projects!

Wrapped three-times around, the scarf was a perfect fit. It’s also perfect for weird self-portraits.

And… Not to leave you guys without some real Wednesday entertainment, here’s a picture that had me laughing this week.

Questions: What do you think is worth talking about this week?
