I was asked in a Chat recently how to make Scrunchies. Here are the directions.
This is a great project for first time sewers!
Cut the fabric 20-22 inches long and 4 inches wide. (1/8 of a yard will make two scrunchies). Sew the fabric together, right sides together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Cut 8 inches off of 1/4 inch elastic. Turn the tube right side out. Using a safety pin, secure the elastic to the tube as you insert it. Next, knot the elastic ends together. (Knotting the ends is much faster then sewing them and is very effective).
Afterwards, take on end of the tube and cuff it to the inside. Tuck the other end inside the tube, and just sew across.
