This is “What I Wore on Wednesday.” I am hoping that once my sister moves to town that she will volunteer to be my photographer. If this happens, I will no longer have to resort to taking photos of myself in mirrors or precariously place my camera atop a stack of books.

I set out to make a scarf using leftover fabric from a curtain project. (I will show you my curtains at a later date.) I just bought my Singer last August and I can count all of my sewing projects on one hand. I am not an expert. I made this up as I went along.
1. I folded the fabric in half and ironed the crease. I did not want the ugly backside to be visible on my scarf.
2. I hemmed just one of the short sides of fabric. Then I sewed the two long sides of fabric together, essentially creating a long fabric tube.
3. After turning the fabric right side out, I tucked the unhemmed end into the hemmed end.
4. Finally I sewed the two ends together. The end result is a giant fabric loop that I am able to wrap twice around my neck.
On a side note I did wash the infinity scarf with fabric softener to ensure that I do not look dressed in tapestries. Eventually I hope to learn how to read real sewing patterns, but for now my made up projects are enough of a challenge. If you are looking for a more detailed tutorial I did find more official sounding instructions over at Flee, Fly, Flown.
