How to make the perfect Scrunchies

  • You will need to cut 2 of each piece of the pattern and pin them right side together (more details on the pattern instructions)
  • Sew the bow leaving a 1cm allowance and turn right side out (tip you can use a chop stick to poke out the corners.
  • Then sew the other piece together leaving both ends open and turn right side out.
  • Get you 12″ of cut elastic (tip pop a safety pin on the end of the elastic and feed through the casing of the hair scrunchies) once you have it through remove the pin and tie the elastic in a knot.
  • Sew the ends together creating and un bowed scrunchie. You can also leave your scrunchie like this but we really love the bow look.
  • Sew the opening of the bow together now its the correct way, and tie the bow around the scrunchies at the seam so its covered up from view.
  • Done! you have the perfect scrunchie in less than 15mins
  • You can create these in so many different fabrics to add to your collection as we can never ever have enough scrunchies
