$5 Christmas—An Infinity Scarf

While perusing the local dollar store a couple of weeks ago {please tell me that I am not the only one}, I saw a stack of sweatpants sitting in a bottom bin.  And the fabric hoarder voice in me said, “hmmm…..that’s a lot of fabric for a dollar.”  And so I bought a pair of size XXL purple fleece sweatpants and threw them in my “to be sewn pile.”
Well, then one afternoon, I pulled them out and saw that the inside was a soft fleece and a very pretty purple color and decided to do something with them.
So, I turned them into an infinity scarf.  In about 15 minutes flat.  I didn’t take a lot of pictures, so I will do my best to explain what I did.  And the best part of the deal is they cost 50 cents a piece –2 for a dollar? Seriously.  And they look so cute.

Here’s what I did…

(I used the inside as my “right sides”—it was such a pretty color and textured fleece.)
And you are done.  An easy peasy Christmas present for any fashion girl on your list.  Or neighbor.  Or friend.  Or you!

  1. Really fabulous idea! I love the textured “wrong” side of sweats! I have an old pair sitting in my closet, from my heavier days. I’m thinking my daughter and I just got new infinity scarves!

  2. How pretty! And I bet it is SO cozy to wear. Although I’m a little offended that you tore apart those glorious sweatpants and didn’t just wear them with pride.

  3. Oh My Goodness!!! you got that from a $1 Store pair of sweat pants…. I would of NEVER thought so… Matter fact I would be the one who would come along and buy from you on Etsy for 45+ :) Now if you come by a MUSTARD YELLOW be sure to let me know… ;)
