Thank you Target!!

I got this on sale at Target about a month ago. Finally the toys are mostly organized in the boy's playroom. I love it and so do they. Ethan loves the organization and Nathan loves to empty the boxes.

Infinity Scarf Tutorial- Easy Beginner Sewing Project!

1. Cut a strip of fabric that is approximately 16-30 inches wide and 64 inches long. (Choose the width by how "fluffy" you want the scarf to be. This one is 16 in.)

2. Iron down about an inch on one end and quickly seam it down.
sorry for the bright lighting!

3. Take the long sides, right sides together, and run a seam down it to create a long tube.

4. Turn the tube right side out.

5. Twist the scarf once and take the unseamed end and place it inside the the seamed end and pin in place. Run a seam over it and then zig-zig over the seam for extra strength.

   All done. This is a really quick and easy sewing project and makes a cute gift.
