IMG 0018 imp 1Find yourself making these infinity scarves and wishing for a chilly day! If you are in a cold climate, you may already be familiar with the luxury of faux fur and cuddle fleece fabrics. With so many textures and prints from which to choose, See how easy it is to work with this snuggly-soft fabric.

The fake fur scarves are most attractive made as an infinity scarf. In my book, Nancy’s Favorite Scarves to Sew, follow all the details, only substitute fake fur or cuddle fleece for the fabric. Or scroll down, to find a complete tutorial. Click here to watch this episode of Sewing With Nancy and see how the twist design element is created when stitching this must-have, or should I say must-sew, accessory.



  • Measure a rectangle 24″ x 40″.
  • Fold the fur fabric matching right sides.
  • Mark a cutting line with a non-permanent pen (on fabric wrong side).
  • Cut along the marked line, cutting only the fabric backing—not the fur. 

Note from Nancy: Cut on the marked line with the tip of the scissors, cutting only the knitted backing, not the fur. Cutting the fabric in the traditional manner leaves you with a complete mess of fur! If you happen to cut the fur, I have a solution for you—vacuum!

Faux Fur Scarf Sewing Tips

  • Measure a 4″–6″ distance along the long edge. This area will remain unstitched.
  • Switch your sewing machine to a 90/14 Stretch Needle.
  • Match right sides, pin, and sew along the 40″ length.
  • Use a 1/4″ seam allowance and do not sew the 4″–6″ marked opening.
  • A nip marking along the fold is needed at each short end.

  • Make a small snip at each marked location.
  • Turn the tube right side out.
  • Give the scarf a twist while folding the tube onto itself, matching right sides of the short ends.
  • Align opposing seams and snips at the end to maintain the twist.
  • Use a 1/4″ seam allowance to sew the scarf ends together.
  • Turn the faux fur right side out through the opening.

  • Use a hand sewing needle and thread to close the opening.
  • Presto—a terrific scarf!
