diy floral infinity scarf {national craft month}

Note: The following review is part of the Jo-Ann Fabric and CraftStores® National Craft Month campaign.  I received compensation for this review, however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience.
Jo-Ann makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon for my readers. They also have this Spring Crafting Inspiration Website to check out. 
This spring's trends in crafting are Radiant Orchid (the color), Nautical, Florals and Geometric.  I love all of these trends, but I decided to create something from the Florals trend.  Right away I knew that I was going to make a sweet little floral infinity scarf.  

Over the weekend, I went to the closest Jo-Ann and started searching for the perfect floral fabric, and boy did I find it. This print is so gorgeous and just screams "spring" and "childhood Easter dresses" (in a good way) at me!
 I picked up a yard and folded it hot dog style (remember that from elementary school?!) with the inside out.  I actually decided to use the muted side as my outside print for this one.
 The only supplies I needed was a needle, coordinating thread, and pins.
 With my fabric folded, I pinned the two sides together, the full length of the fabric.
 Since I was using a slippery fabric, I decided to take the tedious route and hand stitch my sides together.  If you're doing this yourself - it doesn't have to be perfect! I don't do perfect, and my scarf turned out great!
 Then, to make this an infinity scarf, I took each opening and pinned the "right" sides together.  When you do this, it creates a tube.
 I stitched this up (by hand, again), leaving a couple inch hole to turn it right side out.  Once I turned it, I stitched up the hole and was done!
I am loving this new scarf and it easily dresses up my typical outfits of t-shirts and cardigans.
 Not to mention, when I'm not wearing it, it's hanging on the door of my office, and the print makes me smile every time I see it.
What print would you use to make your own infinity scarf? Let me know if you have any questions; I'm happy to help!

  2. Thanks for sharing Erin. That was a beautiful scarf for spring. It was perfect for spring season – lively color. You can wear that spring infinity scarf over your head or around your shoulders to keep out the chill of cooler spring moments, and to add to the elegance of your outfit.
