To be honest, I’ve never worn scrunchies. Still I always admired how they could effortlessly be stretched, twisted, and popped to hold hair in place. The process of learning how to make scrunchies was not nearly as easy as using them. It was like perfecting a recipe. Through much trial and error, I finally got the “formula” right! Keep reading to learn how to make scrunchies.
How To Make Scrunchies
- Hair ties
- Tailor’s chalk
- Scissors and thread
- Sewing machine
Measure an 18” by 4” rectangle from the fabric.
Use the Tailor’s chalk to mark 1.5” at each end of the rectangle.
Fold the rectangle in half, wrong side out.
Place the hair tie in the fold and pin at the 1.5” mark.
Stitch the raw edge length together with a ⅝” seam allowance, starting at the 1.5” mark. The fabric will scrunch up as you sew, so straighten the edge along the way. Stop sewing at the opposite 1.5” mark and back stitch.
Flip the scrunchie right side out.
Sew the raw edge width together.
Stitch the opening closed.
