A couple of weeks ago I decided to send a care package to my sister in AZ. The usual stuff--banana bread, a magazine, a shirt that just won't fit me--and I thought I'd include one of those infinity scarf things everyone seems to be wearing. I looked up how to make them and came across this tutorial for an American Apparel circle scarf knockoff by ComeonIlene:
Her post has inspired me to brave the LA fashion (and/or fabric?) district one of these days.
The scarf itself might be the easiest thing I've ever sewn... really. It is literally 2yds of jersey knit sewn together at the ends with a simple straight stitch. Seriously it's that easy. I pulled the fabric a tad while sewing so that it had some stretch at the seam. Personally I find the scarf a bit ridiculous BUT
a) I don't wear scarves often so I always feel a bit self-conscious in them
b) I'm not usually wearing the kinds of outfits that make a scarf like this look good
c) It's not for me so who cares what I think
That being said the scarf leaves for Flagstaff on Monday and even though I didn't make it for myself I thought I'd still have some fun showing it off--American Apparel style.
