A scarf made out leather? Why not? I thought to myself while I was staring at a beautiful white buttery soft piece of leather from Darby Smart’s shop. I’ve slowly delved into the scarf trend and owned a couple of scarfs. I’m pretty stoked with my new leather infinity scarf! A cool evening in Spring provides the perfect occasion to wear a simple top, a leather scarf and my hair on a bun. Have you ever been so excited about a craft you just can’t wait to start and finish it? I’m telling you; my heart was beating fast while I was figuring it out how to make this work. This project took about 90 minutes from start to finish and I’m very happy with the results. Please take a look below for materials and tutorial and give it a try! Maybe you and I will start a leather scarf trend! ;)

Materials and Tutorial

  1. Start with the leather hide and measure an area of 32 inches wide by 105 inches tall.
  2. Use short scissors to cut through the leather. You will cut the rectangle (32″x105″) again in half. (Look at step 2 above).
  3. Turn 1 rectangle and divide one end of the leather in 6 equal parts. Use a pen or sharpie to mark each division with a dot.
  4. Punch through each dot a small hole (I used a screw punch).
  5. Use the “male” end of a silver stud and put it through the small holes.
  6. This photo shows all six silver studs in position. You will repeat step 3 through 6 with each end of the leather rectangle.
  7. Use the other rectangle with punched holes and position it on top of the rectangle with the male studs.
  8. Use the female stud to “snap” and close all six studs.
  9. This picture shows both leather rectangles with the female studs snapped.
  10. Use a hammer to secure each stud.
  11. Now the scarf is half way done. Repeat steps 6 through 10 with the other two ends of the scarf, thus creating an “infinity” scarf!
  12. Create a seam in the inside of the scarf with “liquid stitch”.
  13. The seam is approximately half an inch tall.
  14. Liquid stitch dries fast and now the scarf is completed.
