Scrunchies. Are. Back. Did you hear?
I mean, it was only a matter of time, wasn’t it? All things 80’s and 90’s seem to have resurfaced so you didn’t need to be a genius to know that this was definitely coming. But you know what? Even if you disagree with ye olde scrunchie on aesthetic grounds, they’re actually so much better for your hair than hair ties, and are ideal for whipping your hair up while you undertake all that masking and beauty tasks you might do (if only you had time). Andddd the fact that you can use fabric offcuts to make them is a win too!
DIY Linen Hair Scrunchies
Cut your fabric into a rectangular strip.We cut ours 3'' (7.5cm) by 15'' (38cm).You can modify the dimensions based on how thick you want your scrunchies to be and how much gather to put in them.Pin down the long edge and sew,but remember to leave an inch or so open at both ends.
Pin one end with a safety pin,and pull that end through the inside of the tube until both ends meet.Match the ends of the tube and sew down the seam.
Flip the tube right way out through the opening,and your scrunchie should look like this.
Thread the elastic through the tube.Pin both ends of the elastic with a safety pin,this will stop your elastic from slipping into the tube if you accidentally lose your grip.
Then the final step is to close off the opening.Sew the edges together using an invisible stitch.
And that’s it! You now have your own custom scrunchies! You can use pretty much any kind of fabric for this DIY, but naturally we used linen because I wouldn’t have it any other way.
