Infinity scarves appear to be bang on trend this season – every teen or student I see appears to be decorated with one. Of course this means that little big girls would like one too! So I’ve had a little play with sizing and widths as obviously a teen/adult size one is going to look a bit daft on a smaller girl and this is what I came up with…

I decided to use a feature fabric and line it with a plain white crinkle cotton, both are fairly thin so should drape well after a couple of washes.

So if your little big girl wants to join the trend, here’s what to do…

…cut out two strips of lightweight cotton 150cm x 15cm and sew them together down their length, right sides facing, leaving 5cm unstitched at the end of each seam. Then turn the tube right side out. Sew the matching ends together, right sides facing and then slip stitch shut the openings on the both edges of the scarf. Press and heh presto – you’ve just made a scaled-down infinity scarf.

If you want to make one mum-sized I’d probably make the strips 2m x 30cm.
