Quick Sewing -- Infinity Scarves

I haven't been doing much sewing in the last few months, but the other day I was bitten by the sewing bug and sat down and produced 4 funky infinity scarves in a little more than an hour.  This is an easy sewing project, with a pretty impressive result.

I made 2 different versions:

The short version (12" x 62"):

And the long version (10.5" x 72"):

I am partial to the long version myself, but it is good to have options.

-- Cut 2 stripes of fabric the appropriate length (12" x 62" for the short / 10.5" x 72" for the long)
-- With right sides together, sew both long edges of the scarf.  At each end leave 2" - 3"  un-sewed.
-- Turn the scarf, right side out.
-- Sew short sides together (right side, to right side)
-- You will be left with a loop of a scarf with two little openings on the side.  Close the opening by sewing them shut either by machine or by hand.
--Wear with pride!
