DIY: Button Infinity Scarf

Megan Peterson

Infinity scarfs have become really popular over the past couple of years, but the prices can be ridiculously high depending on the brand. These DIY button scarfs are affordable and super easy to make.

Here’s how you do it:

(Makes 3 scarves)

1. Buy 1 1/2 yards of jersey knit fabric from a fabric store of your choice. Look for a fabric that looks good on both sides, not just one.

– Price per yard ranges based on fabric (usually around $20)

2. Cut the fabric into 3 parts along the width so that you end up with 3 long pieces that are around 22 inches long.

3. Double fold each of the ends of the fabric (shorter side) about 1/2 an inch and then sew across the fold.

4. Buy snaps at Joann or any fabric store of your choice, and use the snap tool to attach the snaps to the fabric.

– Dritz Snap Fastener “Easy Attachment” Kit (Joann -$3.99)

– Prym Dritz Gripper Plier Kit For Assorted Snaps (Joann -$13.49)

5. Make sure when putting on the snaps you fold the fabric so that the seams line up and the top part of the snap is on the top layer on the overlapped ends.

6. Place 7 snaps evenly along the short edge of the scarf so that the finished edges overlap after closing the snaps. (Instructions are included on snaps packaging)

6. After finished product you can wrap the scarf as many times around your neck as pleased so that the snaps show in the front. You can also unbutton some of the snaps for a different style.
