Are you getting ready for the Dress for Change Week ? It’s coming up fast. The first week of April will be here before we know it. I hope you will support Sheyanne’s senior project by participating in this worthy cause. Head over to her site to sign up if you haven’t already done so.
Of course, I can’t go through a week of wearing the same dress without having a few new upcycled accessories.
Let’s make an infinity scarf from these old unflattering flannel pajama pants to wear during Dress for Change Week.
Wow, super easy to make!
Now I want to make a different infinity scarf for everyday of the week.
Lovin’ me some spring sunshine! It’s been a long winter…

You know what? I MIGHT be able to pull this one off – I’m going to have to go looking around my closet for something I like the material of but not the fit…..I”m going to pin it so I don’t forget! Great job!
I KNOW you could do this, Kelli! It’s fun because you could use almost anything for this, an old dress, pj pants, regular fabric….anything. I was skiing this weekend, but now that I’m home, I want to make some more.
I love this! The print looks great with your coloring. And old pjs to infinity scarf – who’da thunk it?
Thanks, Joyce. I don’t have much leopard print but I think I might need to rethink that. 🙂
Really, you could use most anything to make a scarf like this. I hope you get a chance to try it.
how cool looking is leopard print on you?? it suits you so well! ok, now, I’ll be looking at pants differently 😉
Thanks so much! I don’t have much leopard print. Perhaps I need to rethink that. 🙂
Have a great week!
You are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! (The scarf isn’t bad either!)
I’m loving that leopard print! I scored a bagful of pajama pants (for .49 each!) at a thrift store with the purpose in mind to make them into infinity scarves! I wasn’t able to find any cool leopard printed ones though. 😦
Plaid would be fun, too! If you make one, I’d love to see it!
Awesome! I’ll let you know when I do! Thanks Beth! 🙂
The sunshine looks amazing! So does the scarf……love it!
I love infinity scarves! So easy to make and in every fabric. I need to ck to see if I could do the challenge sounds fun!
I think I’ve found a new love, too! So many possibilities! I hope you can join Sheyanne’s project. I’m actually looking forward to it. Have a great week!
Very neat idea! Two questions: Did you hand sew the ends of the tube (final step)? What kind of material was in the pj’s (what weight, cotton? T-shirt weight? etc.)? Thanks 🙂
Hah! Forget the second question – I re-read and saw it was flannel … sorry!
Good morning, Jo,
After I put one end inside the other, I just machine stitched it with one seam through all the layers. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
That does help – thanks!
Oh good, let me know how it goes!
Love this idea! I did the exact same thing for my daughter a couple months ago.. She had leopard print PJ pants that she was finished with and I made her this same scarf from that fabric. It looks fabulous when paired with a black turtleneck.
Oh, yes, I bet it does look great with a black turtleneck. Thanks for commenting, Mary. Have a great week!
Never would have thought of it. Looks great…and the spectacular view behind you. Wow!
Thank you! I’m so very fortunate to get to look at that view out my living room window everyday. Somedays the sunsets reflecting on the mountains are absolutely breathtaking. I’ve always wanted to take some panoramic photos representing the different seasons. Each has a special beauty. Thanks for your nice comments!
Have a great day!
LOVE IT! You look amazing with that pop of animal print… Very clever idea.
Thanks so much, Jeanna! Have a great week!
Love it! anything leopard is my favorite. Once again you inspire me. I have not had a post over the past 2 weeks…(report cards) I am sure you can relate! I gotta get going. Keep it coming Beth!
We’ve been knee deep in assessments the last few weeks, we are given a day to work on report cards next Friday, then it’s SPRING BREAK! YAY! I can’t wait!
Five words. You are a genius!
Three words…. Thanks so much! 🙂
I just did come across your post on pinterest. Your ideas are so cute==I will definitely try this as I love to wear scarves and recycling things. I have a question to ask–I am a plus size gal and would love to have some ideas on how to make some belts and sashes. Can you thing of a way to make existing belts bigger to fit larger sizes? Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. Thanks
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the making scarves! Super easy to do and so many possibilities.
As far as the belts go, I wonder if you could cut the belt in half and attach something in the back? Or if you wanted to be really brave you could make a braided belt in any color you’d like with this belt tutorial I did awhile back: https://chicenvelopements.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/ok-so-about-that-pink-belt/
Good luck and I hope you’ll come back and visit again!

I love your scarf … And can you believe I have those same pajama pants… Yay !
As far as the belt question above.. I’ve cut a belt in two and added elastic the same width in the middle so it’s not visable from the front.
That is such a great idea, T. Thanks for sharing!!!
You are so talented and beautiful!!!!!!!!!!
And you are so sweet!!
Plein de bonnes idées ! Merci pour votre imagination si créative.
Vous êtes les bienvenus
IS good idea!
I bought a pair of second hand chiffon palazzo trousers for £1.99 from my local charity shop and after following your instructions have made the most beautiful infinity scarf ! Thank you
You are so clever… thanks for a great idea..
