hearts & arrows infinity scarf {diy}

February 14, 2014

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Today I am sharing a quick DIY I did for my daughter to wear to school today.  Here’s the story: I may have mentioned once or twice that I don’t get rid of things easily.  I am always looking for ways to reuse and up cycle before something hits the trash, or even the Goodwill pile.  Recently I decided to ditch one of my grey tank tops that had pretty much seen it’s last wear.  Before i trashed it thought, I thought I would take a stab at making a quick no-sew infinity scarf for my daughter.  One thing led to another, and we ended up with a this adorable Hearts & Arrows Infinity Scarf, perfect for Valentine’s Day!

It all just sorta happened, and I am happy it did.  Moira loves her new scarf.  She told me she can wear it just like Mommy (she’s got my number).

Here is the original…well, sort of original…product.  I cut the bottom off the tank, right below the armpit, and stretched that baby out good.

I ironed on some freezer paper on the reverse side of the fabric to stabilize it while stamping.  Have I ever mentioned how much I am obsessed with freezer paper?  I gathered up my stamps (both from the 1$ section at Michael’s), an ink pad in my chosen color, and got to work.

A stamp here, a stamp there…one facing this way, one facing that way.  Etc, etc, etc…

I let the ink dry, removed the freezer paper backing, and ta-da.  The fastest scarf DIY you ever did see!

Now, just look at that sassy little girl in her new scarf.  All sass.

    I love this project! I have delusions that I am going to learn to sew, but it still hasn’t happened. Love that this doesn’t require sewing. Pinning this
    Thanks for sharing,

    I’m obsessed with making infinity scarfs and my 11 year old daughter loves them too! Cute tutorial. I love the idea of hand stamping them!

    This is so, so cute! Did you just use a regular ol’ ink pad?

    • Reply Anne February 21, 2014 at 3:42 pm

      Regular old ink pad. I haven’t tried washing it yet so I don’t know what kind of ‘staying’ power it has…
