Infinity Scarf {a tutorial}

Hey y’all!  Today I’m sharing a fun faux-sequin scarf.  Sometimes I click the “Women’s Fashion” button on Pinterest and just see what people are loving these days.  This sequined scarf kept coming up, and I fell in love.  

There were only two problems.  One, it’s $135.  And two, sequins are scratchy and although it’s a gorgeous scarf I know it would drive me nuts.  
Then I happened to spot this woven sequin fabric at Joanns (in the clearance bin, I might add) and I knew what I had to do!  
Oh heck yeah baby, all the cuteness and none of the scratchiness!  And it’s pretty easy.
So basically, you’re going to sew one strip of fabric to the other, which will make a giant tube.  Then twist the tube one time, and pin one half of the opening on one end to one half of the opening on the other end.  (Make sure the sequins are lined up with sequins and knit is lined up with knit.)  Then hand sew the rest of the opening closed.  

                        

I love it paired with a jean jacket.  How would you wear it?

      Good – I should caletinry pronounce, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, website theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task.

    Love it!!
    I agree with you about the scratchiness of the sequins – this is a perfect compromise! All the style, none of the pain. Nice job.

    Found my way here via tatertots & jello.
