Your infinity scarf is actually a meobius scarf. This means that it only has one side. Try tracing it and you will see that you go all the way around both sides of the scarf and both sides are really just one.

See here for an example:

A pattern that I often use for my "special" fabric is the BQ Quilt Pattern by Maple Island Quilts. The quilt on the outside of the pattern has 18" finished blocks, but inside they include directions for a 9" finished block.

Another go-to pattern that I use is the 9-Patch Pizzazz by Judy Sisneros.

Either one of these would make excellent use of your Smores fabric and wouldn't require fussy cutting!

Best,
