How to make a silk scrunchie
Learn how to make a silk scrunchie for your hair. In this quick tutorial, I talk through how to make a scrunchie in a step-by-step manner.
What you need
sewing machine needle
How to do it
Cut a long strip of fabric, fold it lengthwise, right sides together, and pin.
Sew the long edge so that you create a tube, and leave a 1-inch gap near both ends. Backstitch at the beginning and end.
Turn the tube right side out using a safety pin. Match the short raw edges, right sides together, pin and sew them.
Use a safety pin to feed the elastic through the tube, then sew together the ends of the elastic. You could use a zig-zag stitch, but I warn you this is quite tricky, given the elastic is so narrow – you could easily release it and have to do it again. Or, you can sew the elastic ends by hand – nice and easy!
Fold the unfinished edges under and stitch the opening to close up your tube.
Puff and fluff your cute scrunchie – and you’re done!
So easy and fun! Enjoy your silk scrunchie!
