Leather Wrapped Infinity Scarf Tutorial

Learn how to make an infinity scarf with a leather wrapped detail to hide the seam. This beginner sewing project is perfect for winter!

I thought I was done with my son’s fall/winter collection, but sneaking in at the end I made him a dapper holiday outfit. Along with his great outfit, I made a masculine infinity scarf with leather details and I made a tutorial for you!

First, let’s talk about the blazer I made: the Berkshire Blazer designed by Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns. I was inspired to make a fair isle sweater blazer I saw on Pinterest and decided to try to replicate it.

After talking to the pattern designer and doing a lot of thinking, I decided to find a fair isle sweater and interface it well enough to turn it into a woven fabric. I searched thrift stores until I found the perfect sweater. I didn’t want it to be too busy, and it needed to be huge to have enough fabric to work with.

The Berkshire Blazer pattern is a really good pattern. I love that it’s a blazer for thicker fabrics. I mean, I used a thick sweater, and it still looks good! I think it’s warm enough for my son to wear as a dressy coat.

This is the first pattern I’ve sewn of Blank Slate Patterns, and the construction is explained really well. I did have to play with the fit a little bit, but that’s because my son is tiny for his age.

I would recommend using fabric recommended in the pattern if you have never put a jacket together to make it easier on yourself. I would definitely recommend this blazer to anyone wanting to make a nice jacket!

I also made the jeans using Titchy Thread’s Small Fry Skinny Jeans, and I made the bow tie using Delia’s crocheted bow tie tutorial.

I love how the leather makes the scarf so easy to finish, dresses it up, and makes it masculine looking. It looks so great with his fair isle blazer!

This is such a great idea for boys wear in the winter! Thank you for sharing!

Just catching up! This is absolutely fabulous!!!! But gosh– when did he get so big!!! He used to be so small. *sigh*

I just love everything about that blazer.

It turned out perfect!!! I love the sweater to blazer and I LOVE that scarf so cool!

love your blazer and what a fun detail on the scarf! Awesome job!!!

Henry is sooooo adorable

Capital A Adorable!!! Cute, cute, cute!

This is so clever…the blazer made from a sweater. What weight interfacing did you use? I love the scarf too. I've got lots of bits of ultrasuede and faux leather from the bags I've made. Can't wait to try this.

I love the blazer from a sweater refashion…so cool!

I love the blazer! I always look to you (or Henry's wardrobe) for refashioning inspiration. I have been holding out on buying the pattern pack, absorbing all the inspiration. After seeing this look, I just purchased the pack and cannot wait to carve out some time to get started.
Thank you!!!

At first I thought you just made a sweater, but then when I was looking at more pictures I could see the blazer. HOW COOL! You are like the most awesome mom ever! Thanks for sharing!

This blazer is AMAZING! And the scarf tutorial is awesome! I need to make some of these.

Oh, Heather, this is SO GREAT! First, love that touch of leather on the scarf….I always love those added touches for boy style. But the sweater-blazer (swazer?) is ridiculously cute. I love how you took an inspiration and just made it work. Perfect cozy, cute style! Love!

Looks great. What a great little model you have.

I love how it turned out Heather – definitely as good as your inspiration pieces! So, so cool. Thanks for being on the tour.

I love your inspiration and you really brought it to life! Amazing. I'm jealous your little guy will wear scarves, what a great outfit all put together!

This may well be one of the coolest blazers I've seen so far!

Great idea for a blazer fabric! looks comfy yet put together.
