Last week I showed you how to make a cloche-style fur hat made from a faux lamb coat I got at one of our stores. There was so much fabric there once I took it apart that I decided to make a scarf, too! There was so much, in fact, I will have more projects to make using the leftovers. Talk about a great buy! Often I peruse the clothing racks at Goodwill not only for fashion, but for pieces that have a good amount of yardage, like dresses and robes. The lining for my scarf was a stretch velvet dress that I also purchased at Goodwill.
What you need:
- Enough faux fur to measure a piece 9”x 65” long
- Enough lining to measure 7”x65” long
- Sewing machine
- Needle and thread
- Scissors or rotary cutter
I measured my fabric and lining then ended up cutting two pieces to create one long piece of both the fur and the lining. Before joining the pieces they measured 66” long to leave a small seam allowance. After sewing them (you really can’t see on the fur where they were sewn together) with right sides together, sew the lining to the faux fur along the outer edges.
Turn the tube right side out. Next, twirl the scarf twice to create a draped effect and THEN sew the lining together at the ends of the scarf. I hand-sewed the fur, thus closing the opening and creating the infinity scarf!
This will really be cozy, warm, and best of all STYLISH! Goodwill is a great resource when it comes to creating your own unique style. Reduce, reuse and recycle aren’t just words, they’re a commitment we can all be a part of!
