Crafty Girls ~ Sew Simple Infinity Scarves 21

by Shelley

Hello my  Crafty Girls,

This time of year is getting a little gray, we are in the nether lands. It isn’t spring and and it isn’t quite winter. Here at our farm, there still remains  the dirty remnants of snow drifts on the ground and the puddles of frozen water scatter across our lane. But, just yesterday, I saw two round red breasted robins sitting in my bare lilac bush singing their hearts out. This sight and sound give me hope that spring will soon be here! The birds can’t be wrong…right?

For a long time now I have been looking for some super fun and easy scarves for you to sew! These would be perfect projects for you to do with together and they will add a pop of color into your winter/spring wardrobe.

 

This first scarf caught my eye because you could virtually use any material!

My favorite idea, if I had a sewing machine, would be to go to Hobby Lobby and spend a few hours in their material department and choose several types of cloth with a variety of patterns and colors to create these lovely infinity scarves.

 

This easy to sew scarf  has a delightfully simple tutorial and was created by The Cottage Home

This second infinity scarf is perhaps a bit more casual. Again the possibilities are endless. The material this scarf is done in a knit fabric with coordinating thread.

The tutorial for this infinity scarf can be found at Skip to My Lou where their motto is to Craft, Create, Celebrate… Skip To My Lou is a place to fulfill the passion for sharing the best in life.

Alright, for the grand finale! I have saved the simplest for last! No trips to Hobby Lobby for you…just a chance to use what you have in your home.  This infinity scarf is made for soft, well loved, retired, t-shirts you have in your home. And if you don’t have a sewing machine? You can try your hand at hand stitching!

 

This gorgeous, soft, oh-so easy and wearable project can be found as a tutorial at this website.

Alrighty my dears, let me know if what you think of these craft ideas. I recycled my sewing machine about 10 years ago after my children were grown.  However, I am finding myself thinking I just might use one again…. any suggestions for a simple easy to use sewing machine? What is a good price to spend?

 

Happy sewing!

I love those! That is so neat! I love Hobby Lobby too, when we lived in Taxas we got to go there quite a bit but now there`s not really one near me. I do have some really cool fabrics that would be great for that though! I can`t wait to try it! Thanks again for all of you great ideas Shelley!

I am very familiar with the Hobby Lobby of Sachse, Texas Sarah! Maybe you could find a Michaels or something?

Hugs,
Shelley

By the way, I haven’t been keeping up with the blog because when we started the class in September, I decided my 9 year old would benefit more from it it I waited just a little while. But we have done some of the crafts (the simple skirt and the valentine hearts that hung on a string) and I would love to do this one too. Thank you so much, Shelley!!

I just got a refurbished computerized Brother sewing/quilting machine on ebay for $120 that I LOVE!! My old machine was also a computerized Brother, but not for quilting, and I loved it dearly, but I had it for 13 years and through 7 kids and it didn’t have a case so the kids broke it. Simple, reliable, lightweight. There’s my two cents. 🙂

Thank you so very much for your two cents my friend! I will take a look at this. I need something easy to use!
