Fall! Colored leaves, pumpkins, crisp air…what could make it any better? Infinity scarves. And the cherry on top is a pocket infinity scarf! Because everyone can use another pocket.
For today’s tutorial you’ll need:
a yard of fabric
two rectangles of cloth the same length as your zipper and about 5 inches deep.
Measure 12 inches from the selvedge edge down the raw edge of the yard of fabric and mark it with a pin. Do the same on the opposite raw edge of the yard of fabric so that when you fold the fabric in half like a hot dog, the pins match up.
Lay your zipper along one of the long edges of the yard of fabric with the end of the zipper at the pin. The zipper teeth should face the right side of the fabric. Sew the zipper to the yard of fabric.
Lay one of the rectangles of cloth on top of the zipper. Sew along the edge of the rectangle.
Repeat with the other side of the yard of fabric, the other side of the zipper tape, and the other rectangle of fabric.
Fold the yard of fabric in half like a hot dog, right sides together, with the rectangles of fabric pulled out away from the yard of fabric. They should lay right on top of each other.
Sew along the raw edge of the yard of fabric. When you get to the rectangles of fabric, sew along 3 edges of the rectangles and then continue the rest of the length of the yard of fabric. You now have a tube of fabric with a rectangle hanging off.
Start turning the tube of fabric inside out. Match the openings of the tube, right sides together.
Sew around the edge of the tube openings but stop before getting to the beginning so there is a hole.
Turn the tube right side out through the hole.
Sew up the hole with either your machine or with a ladder stitch.
The zipper should open to a small pocket perfect of storing chapstick, gum, and other little delights. Cha-Ching! A pocket infinity scarf ready for fall, winter, and beyond!
