Vintage Patchwork Infinity Scarf
5 scarves or fabric pieces cut down to 13" x 16"
Sewing Machine or Needle and thread
Embroidery floss and needle
Start by sewing all of the fabric pieces together to make one big circle. You'll want to attach the 13" sides. You can neatly iron the seams together, fold, iron again and pin (pictured) to get nice, neat seams. Or, you can end up just straight stitching the ends together because you find the slipperyness and sheerness of the fabric is just too much to handle, and don't care if your scarf is a little rough looking. I'm not telling which method I did. ;)
Once you've got a nice big loop, you can fold down the sides, iron, fold again, iron and pin the edges. Then, choose a nice, bright embroidery floss, double it up, and hand stitch a wide straight stitch all the way around. Do this on the other side and your done!
