Pinterest Project: DIY Infinity Scarf

Korrie Bysted

The other day, I was on Pinterest, and I saw a lace and t-shirt infinity scarf. When I clicked on the picture, it took me to a website that was selling the scarf. It always makes me angry when I think something is going to be a do-it-yourself tutorial, and it ends up being something you have to buy.

So, I thought to myself, “This can’t be that hard,” and I decided to try it. It turned out just how I wanted, so I thought I would create my own little tutorial for it.  

This should help you make a cute infinity scarf that’s cheap and great to give as a gift come this holiday season.


  • Old T-Shirt
  • Lace (can be purchased at fabric stores or Hobby Lobby)
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors/ Fabric Shears



  • Lay t-shirt flat on the ground.
  • Cut a straight line from underneath one sleeve to the other.
  • Take your lace and measure the width.
  • Cut the t-shirt horizontally; make sure it’s the same width as the lace.
  • Now, cut one of the side seams open on the t-shirt.
  • After that, cut your lace 2/3 the length of your t-shirt piece.
  • Now, line up the shorter edge of both pieces and sew a straight stitch; make sure to back-stitch at the beginning and end.
  • Do the same on the other side.
You should now have a cute infinity scarf to give as a great gift this season. Your family and friends will love it. It’s super cute, and it’s homemade. So they know you put extra time and effort into their gift.
