His & Hers: DIY Flannel Scarves

October 11, 2012

Its that time of year where we all start to catch the autumn frenzy of baking, crafting, and decorating aimlessly…okay maybe not aimlessly but I often feel as if I am so busy doing all of these seasonal musts that when you stop and think about it, its humorous. I laugh at how funny we can be as humans. Busy bees. As I touched on in a recent post. I am working on less doing and more heart. Anyways, moving on…
This was a project I actually thoroughly enjoyed because I got to bring in the Mr. on this project and we now each have a favorite new scarf. (He loves the old school grandpa type flannel.)
Supplies:
1 yard of flannel fabric per scarf (the thicker the better)
Found mine at JoAnn’s
Fabric Glue (or sew)
(Also can find at Hobby Lobby or JoAnn’s)

Instructions:
I hope this graphic makes it easier to paint a mental picture. You can download it here. Its pretty simple! I am sure there are plenty of infinity scarf tutorials with different methods depending on the fabric you use. For flannel, it’s thick so there is no need to double fold. 
1) Align your fabric and cut along the fold to make two panels.
 2) Fold a hem inwards on both ends of the fabric pieces and stitch or apply fabric glue (really sturdy! stitching is always more effective for long term). For the infinity scarf, sew or glue the other ends as well so you have a loop.
3) Apply fray check to the sides as flannel can fray easily. 
I am hoping to make a few more of these for the menfolk in my family. Its an easy gift to make, but it sure can makes some one feel loved:)
Stay tuned in the coming weeks to witness more of my overzealous autumn projects…
Love, Anna
