I Love You Times Infinity



I love me some infinity scarves! Um… I’m slightly obsessed with this loop’s never ending cuteness. Just like it’s name, it can be infinitely worn year round, regardless the season.

With that said, this tutorial has been on my agenda to master since the fall. Whelp! I’ve found a way to simplify and make it nearly fool proof (If you make it and mess up, I promise I won’t call you one. A fool that is).

Through trial and error the most important factor is getting a tee that doesn’t have side seams. It drastically alters the end result. The larger the tee, the thicker (more strands) and longer the length of the scarf. This specific tee is a men’s medium found at Target and is currently on sale for only $4.99! For that price you can make several in different colors and wear them layered together or separately!

      IDK if I’d go that far… Remember, I’m pregnant slash suffering from goldfish brain syndrome? If I can do it ANYONE can! ha! Thank you, cutie.


    • missy says:

      Aww, thanks! I’m so happy to hear that someone finds me cute despite feeling quite the opposite most days! I’m keeping names Shhh until the big reveal of baby’s birth! Don’tcha hate when people do that? Sorry, sugar. :(


  • Mary says:

    Hey Lil momma.. This scarf turned out so cute.. Thanks for the inspiration! Can you tell me where your cardigan & necklace are from? Thanks~Mary


    • missy says:

      Sweater is from Shopkempt (sponsor linked on the right). But I also listed it directly last week in the “pregnancy essentials” post. The necklace is by Lucky purchased at Nordstrom. :)


  • sara says:

    Love this. I made a similar one last summer and I wear it all the time.
    This is a great craft to do with young girls too (I had 2nd-5th graders) because they can handle just about every step on their own and the finished product is very ‘trendy’ looking….not your standard macaroni necklace craft.


  • Sue Adams says:

    I made this in under 30 minutes! I love infinity scarves and I adore my husband. I stole one of his t-shirts to make it. Now I have a piece of my husband with me when I wear this scarf. THANKS!!


    • missy says:

      That’s a tender way of thinking about it… Wrapping your husband around your neck! ha! “She’s got him totally wrapped!” One woman’s finger is another woman’s neck! LOVE IT!


  • Kellee says:

    I did this yesterday with my little boy and we had a blast, plus I just love the scarf! Thanks Missy, you’re the BEST


  • Cathleen Yates says:

    Oh, wow!!! Beautiful pics of you!
    Love it- I am a huge scarf wearer and love how artsy and hip this looks!
    thank you! Will you be sharing the baby name or keeping it close to your heart for now?
    happy weekend!

  • Lindsey says:

    Love this, it’s so funky and cute! Thank you so much for the awesome tutorial…I just made this with one of my husband’s pale blue t-shirts with an unyielding stain on the shoulder…now I have a fabulous new scarf and didn’t spend a cent!


  • Bella says:

    It really was fool proof! I did a purple and a gray one and then added some bleach lines with a spray bottle. THanks sooo much for the tutorial. You’re the best!


  • Leigh says:

    Woah! Too cute and so clever! I was about to look at where you bought that! As it ends up, I have two Targets right next to me and a pair of scissors in my kitchen :)
    Luvv, Leigh B


  • I am quite possibly the least practical handy woman type around – but this looks so good I am going to give it a go. I am praying my friends here in New Zealand havn’t seen your post yet – then I will have a one of a kind around here :)


  • Sally says:

    So cute! I’ve made two and two more waiting to be made! Obsessed much?! I found clearance tees for $3 @ my Target! Stockin’ up! Thanks for the tutorial!


  • Stephanie says:

    Just made one of these, super easy, and you don’t even have to worry about making the cuts perfectly straight or even, still ends up looking cute!


  • Felicia says:

    LOVE THIS!!! Saw it on Pinterest and immediately started cutting up my husbands shirts!! Made two and can’t decide which one to wear tomorrow!!


  • Stephanie says:

    Absolutely LOVE this!!! Ran to Target this morning, and just finished it!! What a creative idea!! Easy to make, and ridiculously cheap!! Looks great!!! Thank you!!!! Where did you find that cute white long sleeved shirt that you’re wearing?? That is a must have in the closet!!


  • Lauren Peterson says:

    My scarf turned out great and it was so quick & easy! Then I thought, why waste the rest of the T-shirt? I used the same technique on the sleeves to make a smaller/thinner version for summer headbands! Thanks for the great idea!


  • India says:

    this is the afternoon craft w/ my girls at the house… yippee.. I went to target and I look on the clearence rack of Men dept and founds some of the tees and they had different colors. Cant wait to start!!!


  • Emily H says:

    I just made this with two t-shirts (tiffany blue and gray) for a friend for her birthday. SO DARLING! Thank you so much for the wonderful idea! I can’t wait to give it to her, it’s so freaking cute and easy to make!


  • Deb Swanson says:

    Made this & it was sooo fun! Then , I started rumaging through all my drawers & closet to find more t shirts!
    I’m having a huge girl party in two weeks & we r going to make these, how fun. Also, I use my rotary cutter & it went so fast.
    Thanks for all
    your amazing posts,


  • timea says:

    hi, I saved your picture in one of my diy folder. It’s such a great idea and looks fantastic. Also you look fantastic on the picture. I love how the scarf and the necklace looks together. I have a question: did you use cotton and what mixure t’s? I tried on one of my t-shirt and it did not come out at all. I’m not sure what went wrong in my case but I’m guessing the material. it had no elasticity what so ever.


  • Jess says:

    You wanna make sure to wash them after you make these before you were them or else you have lil t-shirt stuff all over you. I found it best to put them in a lingerie bag when washing them so there is less tangling. The t-shirts work best with cotton t-shirts that have no texturing or ribbing and if doing tie-dye shirts turn them inside out before cutting and stretching.


  • Jen W says:

    Just came across this DIY yesterday through another blogger and made a scarf this morning. I love it! And the necklaces you paired yours with in the photos are perfection.


  • Nicole Lombard says:

    Hi! I have been searching for seamless t-shirts everywhere! I live in South Africa, no one has heard of a seamless t-shirt. How can I do this with a nornal t-shrit with side seams?


  • Lindsay Smith says:

    What fantastic style you have. I came across your scarf photo on Pinterest and immediately ran out to Michael’s, got a black tee for $3.32, and made one in under 30 minutes. I adore it! Thank you so much!


  • Cheryl R. says:

    This is so easy and fun. 3.00 t-shirt from RiteAid. Its easier still if you use a Rotary Cutter. I need one in every color. Great for a travel wardrobe. Thought I might sew some tiny seed pearls here and there on the next one.
    Thanks so much for this great idea and Tutorial!


  • Kylee Ann says:

    I am a Fashion and Textiles Teacher in High School and had my students do this when they had some free times waiting for a sewing machine- they. love it. I want them to make me some!


  • Michelle says:

    Thanks for the perfect directions…my brother died this past year and I made this from one of his t-shirts. It is beautiful and a wonderful way to have upcycled his shirt rather than leaving it to sit in a box.


  • Ashley says:

    I just made may first (trial run) infinity scarf in red and I love it… I want to make one in every color. Michelle, my father just past away this past year as well and I am going to make me, my mom and sister the infinity scarfs out of some of his old shirts as well.


  • Lori says:

    omg, i love this so much. thank you for sharing. had to control myself not to tear up the stairs and start cuttig all my husband’s T-shirts..so excited to try something new and something that is so fashionable. Am guessing you also could do this with blouses, sheer or not, that have no side seam, for different prints, textures. thanks, again. <3
