A scrunchie is an ideal project for new sewists because it's relatively simple, plus you’ll be rewarded with a new hair accessory once you’ve completed this DIY. Choose a fabric with fun prints & bold colours, or select something to match a new outfit. The possibilities are endless with scrunchies!

To make a bigger scrunchie add to the width of the fabric strip
The length of fabric is always 22” (56cm)
3.5" (9cm) wide fabric
9.2" (23.4cm) wide fabric
11.2" (28.5cm) wide fabric
Cut fabric to the dimensions of length 22" (56cm) x width 3.5" (9cm).
Cut a piece of .25" (6mm) elastic to the length of 9" (23cm).
Fold the width in half, right sides together & pin to create a tube shape.
Fold one end of the tube back .5" (1.3cm).
Stitch with a 5/8” (1.6cm) seam allowance.
Cut off excess to make a .25” (6mm) seam allowance.
Turn the tube right side out.
Press the seam with an iron.
Safety pin the end of the piece of elastic. Feed the elastic though the tube until the elastic is sticking out of each end.
Note: The safety pin will make it easier to feed the elastic through the tube
Tie the elastic ends together with a knot and move the knot to the side.
Put the raw edge of the tube inside the folded edge of the tube creating a .5” (1.3cm) overlap.
Stitch down the joint with a .25” (6mm) seam allowance.
