Scrunchies have always been one of my favorite hair accessories, and I’m so happy to see them in style again! This is a super simple and stylish accessory, and they hold your hair in place better than any elastic hair tie. They are also a great stocking stuffer to give this holiday!
Fabric of your choice
Sewing machine with thread to match your fabric
1. Cut a rectangle of fabric for the scrunchie. Cut the fabric 45 x 10 mm. You can adjust the width length depending on how thin or thick you want your scrunchie to look.
2. Fold the rectangle in half lengthways. Stitch the end of your fabric together with a 0.5 cm seam, or allow the edge of the foot on the sewing machine to line up with the edge of your rectangle.
3. Turn the tube right-side out. You may need to use a pencil to help push all of the fabric through.
4. Cut a piece of elastic about 14 cm long. Thread it through the tube and tie a knot. The fabric should naturally scrunch around the elastic. Turn the raw edges of the tube under and hand stitch all the way around the edge to close your scrunchie.
