Scrunchies are the perfect sewing project for beginners. The supplies are few and the technique is simple. Don’t waste any more money on expensive boutique scrunchies. Make your own with this quick and easy tutorial.This summer has been filled with sewing scrunchies. I taught my two younger daughters (ages 9 and 11). They have really taken to it, and will NOT stop making them.Every few days, they ask if they can make some more. By now, I think they have made a scrunchie with every scrap of fabric I have that is long enough.The thing is, I really don’t mind. The cost is minimal and it gives them something to do besides staring at a screen.Need a way to store all your scrunchies? Try this DIY scrunchie holder . It’s an EASY project.See this picture below? I told you they’ve been raiding my fabric stash!Fold the fabric in half lengthwise with right sides together. With a 1/4 inch seam allowance, sew along edge to create a tube.Turn the tube right side out.Add a safety pin to one end of the elastic. Thread the elastic through the tube using the pin to guide it through.Remove the pins, you should have elastic coming out of both ends of the scrunchie. Be careful to not lose hold of the ends.Hold the elastic so they overlap each other, and sew with a zig-zag stitch back and forth several times.Insert the unfinished edge of the scrunchie inside the finished edge.Sew a straight stitch along the existing seam, catching both ends of the tube in the seam.Now go make a few more, or if you’re like my girls, 27 more.
