Animal print is really in style right now and looks especially good in the fall and winter. I like a little animal print but not too much for me. I guess I like animal print accessories - scarves, belts, purses or shoes. I have been looking for an infinity scarf that would be a good weight for most seasons. I also wanted my scarf to be more of a cowl neck scarf when looped twice so it would keep my neck warm in the winter. Since I chopped all my hair off, I need a little extra layer.
So, I shopped and shopped online and in local stores but I couldn't find exactly was I was looking for. Well, I take that back I did find one at Saks for $260 but that is not going to happen!
I then decided to look through my material and just make my own! I found this really nice chiffon that has a soft & slinky feel but too opaque. It is an oatmeal color.
Follow my tutorial below and make one for yourself:
-Cut out the dimensions that you desire. I did 50" x 20". Then tape to a flat surface.
-Print out this pattern or any other one to use as a reference. I suggest using a large pattern because it is very time consuming.
-Slide a piece of paper under your work area and use some fabric markers to create your pattern. I suggest two markers of each color for one scarf. The animal print looks better if it is very dark.
-When you are done, it is time to sew it together. Fold long ways with the finished sides facing each other and sew.
-Turn right side out. Here is the finished long seam.
-Then sew the ends together. Just fold in one side over the other end so there is no unfinished end showing and sew. You could also sew a decorative trim piece here too.
Here is my finished Leopard Cowl Neck Infinity Scarf!! I think it turned out really good. I can't wait to wear it out :)
