Infinity Scarves

Hello Ladies,

I got into a sewing mood!!! How?? Well, I went to visit my friend, Senadzi, a while ago and I was telling her about decorating the baby's room and possibly getting some throw pillows and covering them with some fabric to go with the decor.  She just so happen to be going through some stuff around her house and gave me some fabric she figured she wouldn't get around to using.  As soon as I came back from visiting her, I showed my mother the fabric and told her all I needed to do was get some throw pillows. I was in no rush, but my mother just so happen to stumble across some throw pillows at a garage sale that following weekend. She bought them over to me so there was nothing else to do but get to work.  I checked out some YouTube videos on how to reupholster pillows and then I headed to the store. I could have just reupholstered the pillows with what they gave me, but I wanted to be fancy after watching YouTube.  I purchased some inexpensive back fabric (being extra), ribbing cord (trying to be fancy), and zippers so I could remove the pillow casing and wash them if need be. This was a pretty cheap project for me since the most expensive stuff was given to me. 

See my newly upholstered pillows....

I wish I had a before picture of the pillows, but that is besides the point. While I was at the store getting the items for the pillows, I purchased some remnants to make some infinity scarves for myself to have this fall.  I got the idea to make some while skimming my Pinterest one day. The Pinterest post had the instructions, but I had to watch someone do it so off to YouTube I went. Here is the video I used to make my infinity scarves. 

Check out the final products!!!
