Faux fur infinity scarf–last minute gift idea!

Faux fur scarf--a great last minute gift ideaI’ve learned you can lean a lot on awesome materials to elevate a simple project.   This infinity scarf is one such example.   It’s made out of this beautiful teal and black striped fur from Mood Fabrics.  I got a yard–enough to make two scarves.  A few years back I made a similar one in the plum colorway and I wear it all the time.  It’s super cozy.

Infinity scarves are pretty easy to make.  You just make a tube out the fabric and then sew the raw ends together to form a loop.  There are plenty of tutorials out there: this one is pretty much the method I followed.  I made it long enough to loop twice around the neck for extra warmth.

These scarves make great affordable gifts ($25 bucks makes two scarves). Especially considering that Antropologie is selling similar scarves for upwards of $58 a pop.  I’m hoping the picky teenager on my gift list loves hers.  Wish me luck!
