How to Make a Scrunchie

This Instructable is focused on how to sew a scrunchie by hand. It can be done with a machine as well, but this particular scrunchie was sewn by hand. The time it took to sew the scrunchie by hand was around one hour.

Supplies:

Step 1: Cut the Needed Fabric

Cute a 26" by 3.5" piece of fabric

Cut an 11" piece of elastic and set it to the side

Step 2: Iron

Iron the fabric to remove all wrinkles and creases

Step 3: Fold

Fold (overlap) the fabric to 13" to where the desired (right side) is not showing

Step 4: Fold Again and Secure With Safety Pins

Fold the overlapped fabric in half "hotdog style", and use safety pins to hold the fabric in place.

Fold one end (out) (1/2") to where a small portion of the correct side is showing

Step 5: Stitch Together

Stitch a 1/4" seam on the open side of the folded fabric

Step 6: Turn "right Side Out"

Attach a safety pin to one side of the fabric and pull in through the inside of the tubular shaped fabric (this will turn it "right side out")

Step 7: Insert Elastic

Take a safety pin and attach it to the elastic

Run the safety pin (connected to the elastic) through the fabric to where the fabric now surrounds the elastic

Step 8: Finishing Touches

Tie the elastic in a knot and place the raw end of the scrunchie into the previously folded end of the scrunchie and sow the two together
