Project 1: Infinity Scarf

Welcome to the very first project of the Oh Sew Creative Sewing Challenge. We are starting things off with a great project for all skill levels!

This fun and stylish infinity scarf is made from jersey knit fabric. Whether you are new to working with this kind of fabric or have used it many times in the past- this project will either help you learn or help you master your skills. Jersey knit fabric is also the perfect fabric for this accessory, as it comes in many different colors and prints, drapes well when worn and can be worn during any season.

This project works up fairly quickly and because of how the pattern is written- you can make two infinity scarves from one cut of fabric. Perfect to keep one for yourself and give one as a gift! You’ll find the link to the project below and you can check out my little video below to see my take on the infinity scarf. Also, don’t forget to share photos of your finished project on the Facebook Group page– I can’t wait to see them all!

If you haven’t yet already, make sure to officially join the challenge so you can get each week’s project delivered right to your inbox. Sign up here!

    I thought the ‘challenge’ was going to be the quilt Gina was going to teach the group to put together. Did I sign up for the wrong thing?

    I’ve slipped out of the sewing habit and this looks like an excellent way to get the “juices” flowing again.

      Hi,
      You can always purchase additional presser feet for your machine- simply make sure that you purchase the brand that goes with your machine. Aside from that, you can use something called knit stay tape to help stabilize your seams when stitching or layer tissue paper above and under your fabric when stitching to help keep everything even. The tissue paper can then be easily torn away once the stitching is completed. Also, be sure you are using a ball point or jersey needle when stitching knit fabric.
      Cheers,
      Ashley

    I’m excited to be a part of this “adventure”. I am interested to buff up my sewing skills. I haven’t sewed much since a teen.

    Video’s are great, only problem is that you use inch etc. and I have difficulties to understand size of fabric or measures in cm. Is it possible to also give measures in cm? That would be very helpfull. Thanks <3
