DIY Liberty Patchwork Infinity Scarf

The chilly weather lately inspired this Liberty London patchwork infinity scarf. Since the scarf goes around your neck, I suggest you use scraps that are soft like cotton lawn, voile, knits, fleece, or double gauze to prevent it from being too abrasive. For one side of my scarf I used Liberty London lawn and for the other I used a piece of Kaufman lightweight voile I bought from fabric.com. You can also see my other fabric scrap projects here.

There are a lot of wonderful tutorials out there on how to sew an infinity scarf so I won’t go into details in this post. Instead I want to describe how I pieced my fabric together to get a patchwork look.

First I started with some of my larger Liberty scraps. Some scraps were cut on the bias and some were a long rectangle which helps with the patchwork effect when they are pieced together.

I sewed the scraps together to make a giant rectangle. You can adjust the width  of your rectangle depending how big you want your scarf. I wanted mine to be roughly 11″x50″ so I ended up cutting my giant rectangle into three 11″ rectangles. You can trim off excess fabric after you piece all the fabric together if it ends up being too long.

I then cut each 11″ rectangle in half to make 6 squares and then cut each square into a triangle. I rearranged the triangles from different squares get a patchwork effect. This is a similar method I used to make my Liberty patchwork top.

I sewed the triangles together to make squares and then sewed the squares together to make one long piece of patchwork fabric. Here you see the blocks sewn together. I ended up using only 5 blocks to get the length I needed.

Finally I sewed my patchwork fabric piece and Kaufman voile together and then connected the ends to make an infinity scarf.

Has the cold weather inspired a sewing project for you lately? Thanks for stopping by today and happy “mad” patchwork sewing!

    I love Liberty fabrics but never tried a large project with them because they’re pricey. This would be a great way to use some of the pre-cut packs I’ve seen on Etsy. Love the colors!
