Second Annual Natural Parents Network Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway (Chevron Infinity Scarf from Paisley Place Stitching (ARV: $20)) (12/6, 26 winners, US only, ARV: $2587. 26)

Second Annual NPN Holiday Gift Guide & Giveaway (12/6, 24 winners, US only ARV $2587.26)

This is a joint review and giveaway of the chevron infinity scarf from Paisley Place Stitching between the Natural Parents Network and WaldenMommy:Life Behind the Red Front Door. 


Paisley Place Stitching and is owned and operated by Lisa, a mom based in the US. She offers adorable custom clothing options for children with a variety of special occasion and seasonal stitching on them. She has makes accessories for mom, including bags and totes, all available to be personalized. While she does order the bags and some clothing items pre-made, she does all the custom embroidery herself. You can also contact Lisa for custom quilting, such as t-shirt or memory quilts. The quilts, from cutting up the fabric, to sewing it together to the final details, are all done by Lisa! Her business is small but growing!


For this review, I received an infinity chevron scarf in orange with my initials on it in navy (ARV $20). The
front of the monogram
fabric is a jersey knit and it is double sided. There is no “wrong” side of the fabric showing as the scarf was sewn into a tube and then the ends slip- stitched together. The stitching was very well hidden and I had a hard time finding the seam.

The monogram was perfect. Lisa asked was initials I wanted, so I used cLk (lastnameFIRSTmiddle). You
back of the monogram
 can pick the style of monogram you want from the picture in her Facebook album “Personalized Bags, Bags, and moreBags!” My font is “master circle” although any of the fonts would be cute on this scarf. I think just the first initial would be cute for a tween!

Because the scarf is double sided it is toasty warm. I wore it for outside on a family picture day and to a pumpkin patch with my sons’ preschool class. Both times I was dressed otherwise lightly (jeans, layered shirts) but was still warm. On both occasions, I got lots of complements on my scarf and people wanted to know where I bought it!

As a mom, the chevron infinity scarf is an easy was to dress up any outfit. I wear a lot of jeans and plain shirts, and this would add a punch of color to my most boring mom uniform. While I mostly wore the scarf in a double loop, Pinterest has a variety of easy styles for the scarf. Also, I am pretty short (5 foot two) so I was worried that a scarf with the name “infinity” would be too long for me. I was wrong, as the scarf, draped around my neck and completely unwrapped, barely hits my knees. Since you can style the scarf anyway you like, it is perfect for a variety of heights and body types.

Overall, my only problems with the product is that with all the cute colors and affordable price, I might be purchasing many, many more of these!


If you wish to buy a chevron infinity scarf, or any of Lisa’s other adorable products, please check out Paisley Place Stitching on Facebook. Browse Lisa’s albums and her wall photos for ideas and pricing and then send her a message. The scarf is $16.95 without monogram; the monogram is another $5.
