Easy to make, you can have a scrunchy for every occasion. Sew them by hand with a running stitch or ask an adult to sew them for you, using a sewing machine. Thread them with elastic and decorate them imaginatively. Make scrunchies from ribbon, lace, velvet or dress fabric. A brightly colored toweling scrunchy would be good for the seaside or swimming pool.
You will need:
- Fabric and lace
- Needle and thread or a sewing machine
- Medium sized safety pin
- Half centimeter wide elastic
- Sequins and glue
Step to follow:
Step # 1
Lace: sew a centimeter- wide hem along one edge of the lace. Use the safety pin to thread the elastic through the seam. Tie the ends of the elastic into a knot and shape the scrunchy.
Step # 2
Velvet: fold the fabric in a half lengthways, with the wrong side out. Sew a seam. Turn the velvet tube the right way around the pulling one end through the other. Sew a channel in a matching thread along one side and thread the elastic through.
Step # 3
Tartan: this attractive scrunchy is made in the same way as the velvet scrunchy. Use matching thread to sew the seams.
Step # 4
Sequin: make this party time scrunchy in the same way as the tartan and velvet scrunchies. Decorate it with the shiny sequins glued or sewn onto the fabric.
