Fleece Infinity Scarf Tutorial


Fleece Infinity ScarfThis Infinity Scarf, sewn from fleece, takes just minutes to make! You only need basic sewing skills to complete this project. You will be using one hand sewing stitch, the Ladder Stitch. I have a photo tutorial for this stitch if you have never done it. Find it here: Ladder Stitch Photo Tutorial.

You’ll Need These Materials:

  • Fleece fabric approximately 20″ x 58″ (can be wider than 20″ if you like)
  • Sewing machine
  • Matching thread
  • Hand sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Optional rotary cutter & mat

Let’s Get Started!

Fleece generally comes in about 58-60″ widths, so I took a piece I already had and just trimmed the selvage off. This left me with a piece about 58″ long. I cut my fabric 20″ wide. This is really a personal preference. If you want a wider or narrow scarf you can adjust accordingly. Keep in mind this will be folded in half and there is a 1/2″ seam allowance. With a 20″ wide piece of fabric, my finished scarf ended up being 9″ wide.

Sew Fleece Lengthwise

Fold fleece lengthwise and sew along long edge

Fold your fabric lengthwise right sides together and stitch using a 1/2″ seam. Turn right side out.

Turn raw edges to inside and baste

Turn fabric edges to inside about 1/2″ on each end and baste by hand or long machine basting.

Use the Ladder Stitch to stitch the ends together all the way around. The stitches will be invisible on the outside. Remove the basting stitches you made earlier.
