Today I am sharing how to make a snowflake infinity scarf, a perfect easy-and-fast holiday gift.
I already had the white knit fabric so I picked a bright turquoise to make the snowflakes pop even more =] It's so easy to make super cute infinity scarfs for everyone in your family, imagine the possibilities with different color fabric, punchers and paint colors!
- 27″ of any knit fabric, I used designer tissue knit thin stripe white
- Freezer paper
- Fabric medium
- Acrylic paint
- Snowflake paper punch
- foam Brush
- Plastic palette
- Iron and iron board
The first step is to punch small pieces of Freezer paper. I had a hard time at first because I started punching only one sheet while the pieces were still curvy from the roll. So to make it easier I cut pieces and place a book on top for a day to make it flat. It also helps if you slice a piece of normal paper on the back after punching so the corners of the snowflake don’t get caught on the edges of the puncher.
Once you have a good number of snowflakes, place the shiny side of the paper facing your fabric and iron it, pressing firmly down. I set the iron at the cotton setting.
Lay the fabric down and make sure you put newspaper or any kind of paper down. Mix the fabric medium and the paint according to the medium directions.
Use the sponge brush and gently add paint to the fabric, use more of a push-down motion, not really a “brush” from side to side motion.
After you are done, remove the freezer paper to reveal your pattern.
Once your paint is dry place both ends with the wrong side facing out and sew a straight line at the edge, you are done!
