The thick pile of chunky Sherpa fabric masks seams and sewing imperfections, which is perfect for a beginner sewing project. Its is so cuddly that no one will notice if your lines are straight or not.

How to Make a Sherpa Infinity Scarf

First, trim the edges of the fabric to make them straight. Just kidding! The chunky fabric won’t cut straight. Just make sure the edges aren’t jagged and rough when cutting 1/4 yard.

Next, fold the fabric in half lengthwise. The two shortest sides should be end-to-end, forming a loop. Pin the short ends together.

Sew on your sewing machine using a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Now fold the Sherpa in half longways. The hem you just made should be facing inside when the two edges are brought together.

Then pin in place.

  1. Love this! Could you hand sew this, or is the fabric too bulky? I only have my grandmother’s old singer machine/table right now and don’t even remember how to use it.

    1. You could totally hand sew this! The fabric isn’t too bulky when considering the fluffy part can be moved out of the way to insert the needle.
