Easy Infinity Scarves (tutorial)

Today, I am sharing this quick tutorial on how to make an Infinity Scarf.

How to make an infinity scarf.

I picked up a little infinity scarf for my missy on one of my recent shopping trips.  Our weather had briefly cooled down last weekend and she finally got to wear the scarf.  She looked so darling in her scarf, I had to make her a few more.  Luckily, there were a few fabrics in my stash that were perfect for light-weight infinity scarves.  (A semi-sheer chiffon, a knit and some sort of rayon/polyester mystery fabric.)

How cute is this scarf??  (Seriously, I think I might have to seal the blue one.)  I really like how the blue fabric retains it's fullness.

DIY Shorties plus Learn how to Serge the Perfect Stretchy Hem (w/the blind hem foot)

Yea, I can mark another back to school project off the list! (Gotta get through all these before I can officially start thinking Fall and Halloween.)  Not all of my daughter's skirts come with shorts underneath and she definitely needs them!  I used my legging pattern to make these little shorties.

Free short pattern (size 3 to 8)

I left the dark blue pair the recommended length, so she could wear them around as shorts and they wouldn't be too short.  I took about an inch/inch and a half off the other two pairs so you wouldn't see them under her shorter skirts.
