Winter Wonderland: A Quilted Infinity Scarf Tutorial

Winter Wonderland Trapper Hat and Quilted Infinity Scarf Tutorial

I am very happy to be joining the Pattern Anthology tour for the Winter Wonderland Collection today. The four talented ladies behind the collection have been very busy and the complete collection includes 8 patterns, 4 for girls and 4 for boys. For a limited time only (just today and tomorrow!) you can choose the individual boy or girl collections for $24.95 each or the whole collection for $39.99. After that the patterns will be available individually but at a higher price.

I chose to make the trapper hat and a tutorial for the perfect co-ordinate – a warm winter scarf. I was very happy to see this in the collection. In fact there are two styles of hat included – a trapper hat and a pilots hat. We are huge fans of trapper hats here and I think we already have five but my boys both have fairly big heads and none of them fit Casper anymore.

The fabrics I used were a light grey wool felt that I bought here for the exterior and a snuggly faux fur for the lining that was kindly given to me by my good friend Celina. I measured Casper’s head at just under 20.5″ so went straight for the biggest size. If you are planning to use a faux fur lining then I’d recommended going up a size if you’re not already at the biggest size. This was particularly thick faux fur though and actually faux fur is only recommended for an outer fabric in the pattern. My only change was to add a rectangular tabs at the bottom of each flap with a snap on each so you can join them underneath the chin or at the top of the hat.

This was a really enjoyable pattern to make and fairly quick too. The faux fur wasn’t the easiest to work with but fortunately it’s quite forgiving. Casper absolutely loves his new hat and was very happy to pose for photos. The photos were taken in the New Forest, at the Blackwater Arboretum on Rhinefield Ornamental Drive on a very cold but sunny day. It’s a beautiful part of the forest and you can see some of the largest trees in England here. They are still tiny in comparison to some of the trees in North America though.

This quilted infinity scarf might be the warmest scarf ever. It has a layer of fusible fleece in between the two outer layers and I really want one for myself. So do you want to know how to make one? Let’s get started.

  • Fabric A – sweatshirt fleece
  • Fabric B – I used double gauze but anything soft is good. I bought the gorgeous silver Nani Iro herringbone from Miss Matabi
  • Fusible fleece
  • Fabric marker / chalk
  • Regular sewing supplies

This is my first video tutorial – I hope you like it. I had a lot of help from my husband to make this so a huge thank you to him!

You can see a close up of the scarf below. I picked a triangular design but you can use whatever quilting design you like.

The image above gives you an overview of all the patterns in the Winter Wonderland Collection. You can see the whole collection here but be quick as you can only buy the patterns in the discounted collections until tomorrow. This is the last day of the tour and there have been 44 bloggers taking part. You can go here to check out what all of the other amazing bloggers have made and find links to every post. There has been a lot of variety as each day there has been four posts – one on taking sibling photos, one on style tips, one post that includes a scarf tutorial and one showing ways to remix the patterns. They really show what a versatile collection this is.
