DIY No Sew, Spring Infiniti Scarf
Spring fashion is always so exciting for me. Like Spring decor, I try to bust out the brightest colors in my closet. I loved my No Sew, Fall Infiniti Scarf so much, that when I spotted this vibrant fabric print at Hobby Lobby last Spring (not available anymore, I’m sorry) I knew I needed to make a Spring version. The print and lightweight fabric make this scarf perfect for Spring and into Summer, and I believe the pom poms elevate the piece. The best part about this entire DIY is that it took less than an hour to create (aside from the 24 hour drying time), and I did not have to pull out my sewing machine or thread.
I hope you enjoy the steps below to create your own fully customizable and very simple no sew, Spring Infiniti scarf.

To make your own no sew, Spring Infiniti scarf, you will need:
Before you start this project determine how long and wide you want your scarf to be. You can do a mirror check with the measuring tape to see what a good length and width is for you. I chose 1 & 1/2 yards because I wanted the scarf to be long enough to wrap around my neck twice. For the width, I cut the fabric at 15 inches, because I preferred the scarf to be a little billowy.
Step 1: Find a large, clean space to lay your fabric out. Cut your fabric to the width/thickness that best works for you. As per mentioned, I chose 15 inches because I wanted my scarf to have some fullness and billow over.
*Tip: If you are undecided on the scarf width/thickness err on the side of more, because you can do a mirror check and always trim away. My mother always said it is much easier to cut fabric away than to add fabric once it has been cut.
Step 2: Prepare the fabric fusion by cutting a hole in the tip with a straight pin.
Step 3: Apply an even line of Aleene's Fabric Fusion (link above) to the pom pom trim. Then securely attach the pom pom trim to the edge of the back side of the fabric print.
Ensure the pom pom trim shows nicely onto the other side of the fabric.
Step 4: Insert the straight pins for added stability while the glue dries. I added a straight pin every 6 inches to help aid in the drying process.
Instead of adding Aleene’s Fabric Fusion (link above) to the pom pom trim and then to the scarf, you may find it easier & faster to add the glue directly to the scarf fabric. Then you can slowly add the pom pom trim to the scarf. Either method will work well. Just take your time and keep your work space clean so the glue doesn’t get on to everything.
Step 5: Once you add pom pom trim to the entire side of the scarf, cut the trim to the end of the scarf fabric.
Repeat the entire process of adding pom pom trim to the other side.
*Aleene’s Fabric Fusion will create a nice hem as you glue the pom pom trim to both sides so you shouldn’t have to worry about fraying. However, if you really are concerned about fraying you can add Aleene’s Fabric Fusion to the edges before you start the entire process to ensure there will be no fraying.
Step 6: Apply an even line of Aleene's Fabric Fusion (link above) to the fabric end that folds on top of the other end. Fold the fabric end over to the glued end to create the Infiniti scarf.
*Once the fabric ends are glued together you may notice some gaps where the fabric fusion didn't adhere. Take this time to apply more fabric fusion into those areas.
Step 6: Secure the glued fabric with straight pins for 24 hours. After 24 hours, remove your straight pins from your scarf and it is ready to wear! You may wash it on gentle cycle.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather with your simple, one-of-a-kind Spring scarf. I look forward to seeing your unique creations. Happy crafting!
