How to make  fabric scrunchies 

A scrunchie (or scrunchy) is a fabric covered elastic hair tie used to fasten endless hair wikipedia. Just to be clear

What do you need to make the scrunchy?

A little piece of elastic inches long  ( for thick hair double this or use two lengths) Note : The elastic size needs to be tested on your hair. A 7 -8 inch endless elastic is alright for a medium thickness of hair but you may own thicker hair and this would not suffice.

Test it on your hair.

You need a piece of fabric strip Cut a piece of fabric 3 inch 4 inch -5 inch  wide ( depending on how wide you desire your scrunchie) and 17 20 inch long  (3 times the length of your elastic)

Increase the length for more ruffles or increase the width for more thickness. needle and thread, a little pin and optionally the sewing machine.

Idea 2 Lace edged scrunchie

This scrunchie has a lace trim between the seam on the outer edge. This is a basic scrunchie with a slight difference.

Diy hair bow ideas

Before the step 2, ie stitching the endless edges together insert a piece of lace trim ( or ribbon or fabric piece folded) inside as in the picture below

Continue making the basic scrunchie, by bringing the endless edges you own the lace inside, that is the difference.

When you finish making it, you will discover that the lace trim will form a nice frame exterior the scrunchie.

You can collect lace trim before keeping it inside for more frills.

Idea 5 No sew scrunchie

Wouldnt it be nice to make a scrunchie without sewing

This is a no-brainer.

If you would rather not sew you can still make a scrunchie, without the sewing machine or hand sewing. You need some sort of super glue / glue gun for this. Use the super glue to repair the edges ( other than the sewing part the basic scrunchie making steps apply here).

Idea 7 Scrunchie with beads

Beads add beauty to just about anything. Why leave scrunchies behind. Add beads in any way you desire. I own taken the simple way out and just wrapped bead chain around the scrunchie.

You can stitch beads onto the fabric using any of the bead embroidery stitches or add beads in intervals, folding the scrunchie to glance love petals.

If the scrunchie is thin you can even thread large beads with the srunchie before joining the short edges and elastic.

Idea 8 Make Rabbit ear scrunchie

This is made by adding a bow to the basic scrunchie.

To ensure that the bow holds its shape, cut the fabric with interfacing attached to the back of the fabric.

I cut the shape on folded interfacing piece, ironed it to the fabric and then cut the fabric in this shape.

Sew two such shapes together, rightsides inside, along the a space in the middle unstitched.

Diy hair bow ideas

Turn the shape inside out through this unstitched space. Hand stitch the hole

Attach it to the scrunchie with a little folded strip of fabric. Stitch in put (again hand stitch). You can add a fabric bow as well the same way. Checkout the post on making cute fabric bows here

You can also add bows to your scrunchie. Check out the post for making 10 types of hair bows here.

Idea 1 Thin scrunchie

To make a more narrow scrunchy cut a fabric strip 1 1/2 inches wide inches is for 1/4 inch elastic.

Make the scrunchie the same way as explained earlier.

Thought 9 Faux fur scrunchie

For a puffy scrunchie make it with a fabric with grand volume love the faux fur.

Idea 3 Lace ruffle scrunchie

For this, I am using a extremely wide cotton lace. You can use any wide lace or fabric piece which do not fray at the edges or wide ribbon. It should be wide enough to accommodate a channel in the middle for inserting elastic.

You need 2 pieces of lace 20 inches long.

Keep the lace pieces stacked on top of the other so that the excellent scalloped edges are facing to either sides.

Sew a channel in the middle which is 1/2 inch wide.

Insert the 1/4 inch elastic ( 6 -7 inches long) through the channel with a safety pin.

Pull the elastic and stitch the ends together. Now hand stitch the ends of the lace together

This is made by keeping two diverse pieces of fabric strips together. One fabric piece is 3 inch wide and 17 inch endless and the other one is 2 inch wide and 17 inch endless.

Keep the two pieces correct sides together and stitch the two endless edges. This is your fabric tube for the scrunchie. This makes a scrunchie in which one piece of fabric will show to the other side love a frame.

Make the scrunchie the same as you would normally.

Basic homemade Scrunchie

Step 1

Fold one short edge of the fabric 1/4 inch to the inside.

Press in put with an iron.

Step 2

Fold it by the middle, correct sides to the inside, lengthwise and stitch the endless edges  together with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

You can use simple hand stitches to sew your scrunchie seams Hand stitches work as well as the machine stitches. Just make a Back stitch stitch or any other hand stitch you wish to make ( You may wish to throw the scrunchie into the washing machine  and then a excellent stitching line will be more secure).

Step 3

Attach a pin on one finish & turn the tube inside out through one short finish.

Diy hair bow ideas

You now own a endless tube.

Step 4

Cut out a piece of elastic 5 8 inches endless  (I am using one single elastic length. If you own additional thick hair, which regretfully I dont, you should be using two lengths of the elastic)

Step 5

Insert the elastic through the opening with a little safety pin.

Pull the elastic ends together and stitch two or three zig zag lines enough that they are secure.I simply tie two or three knots with the ends. This is ok with a thick scrunchie, but with the narrow scrunchies, you will own to stitch.

You can at this point attempt this on your hair and see if the length is enough / large for our hair.

If it is too large cut off additional  ends and tie/ stitch again.

Now bring the fabric edges together ; insert one finish ( the raw edge) to the other ( one with the turned inside edge).

Step 6

Hand stitch the ends of the scrunchie. You can use invisible stitches for this- love a ladder stitch.

You can use diverse types of fabrics to make scrunchies. Make it in in velvet. Black is my favourite as it goes with every colors. You can change its size, shape and style in numerous ways.

Some of them are as below

Idea 6 Make a no-sew ruffled net scrunchie

This scrunchie is a extremely simple project. If you own any sheer or other fabric which do not fray you can make this. I am using a beautiful leftover fabric from my lehenga skirt pattern project. It is a dream fabric which is exactly correct for this one. I suppose you can use tshirt yarn also

Cut 1 inch strips of fabric. I took a length of inches to make this scrunchy ( 30 inch endless 4 pieces which are 1 inch wide).

Cut them further into inch pieces.

Cut the 1/4 inch elastic to 7 inch length. Sew the edges together really well, so you own an elastic band.

Now start tying the short pieces of fabric on this elastic tight tie is enough.

After you own done the tying( make certain that not even a speck of elastic is showing through. If it is, tie more strips to cover it). You can trim the exterior to glance a perfect circle or leave it untrimmed as it is

Idea 10 Scrunchies with contrast bands

This scrunchie is made the same way as the one with the lace trim in Thought 2.

Instead of the lace trim a folded fabric strip is stitched to the inside of the fabric tube seam.

Fold this fabric strip and lay as in the picture above, folded side to the inside of the scrunchie fabric

Ribbon Tie Tutus

I know it is just now August, but Halloween is just around the corner. Most people won’t start thinking about costumes for another month or two, but if you’re planning to DIY your daughter’s costume, this tutorial will come in handy!

We own done tutu tutorials in the past, but this one is a ribbon tie tutorial. These are fabulous because they are Simple and you can make them any size you need.

This peacock tutu is made to fit a year ancient.

The waist band is 21″, plus at least a foot on either side for the bow.

(To create your own custom tutu, check out our waist size guide!)

I decided to use 4 colors of tulle on this peacock tutu. Purple, fuchsia, turquoise, and teal. The strips of tulle were attached in a pattern, but I did two strips of teal and only one strip of each of the other colors.

You can create your tutu any length you love. I ponder a endless tutu would be absolutely lovely. Instead we decided to do a tiered glance. The length in the front is about 9″ endless, the strips along along the sides are about 11″, and the back is about 14″.

Gather your supplies: Tulle, ribbon, scissors.

I ended up needing a few additional strands from another roll of teal tulle, but you could get by without it if you just add some additional purple or something. Cut your ribbon to size. Use the chart above and add at least a foot to each side.

Cut your tulle to size. DOUBLE THE LENGTH! (For the 9″ pieces, cut them about 18″ endless, etc.) Don’t cut it every at once since you don’t know how numerous 9, 11, and 14 inch pieces you’ll need.

Fold your ribbon in half to discover the middle.

Start in the middle with the 14″ (actually 28″) strips.

Fold the tulle in half and see steps above for the exact way to tie it. Attaching one strip at a time, work your way around the ribbon. Remember that you started in the middle of the back, so you’ll need to attach the tulle on both sides of that middle strip.

You can bunch the tulle knots together, creating a really fluffy tutu. The one pictured above is how it looks if you don’t squish the knots together. Hold in mind that if you desire a really full tutu, you will need additional tulle.

I hope those directions are clear.

It really is a simple process!

This holiday season, I decided to make every my friends and families’ Christmas and Hanukkah gifts from scratch.

This struck me as the best way to hold below costs, reduce holiday waste and give back to people in a way that felt more meaningful than simply clicking “add to cart”.

I had it every planned out. Most recipients would get short stories I’d pen based on a excellent memory we shared. For my mom, a hopeless pack-rat, I’d devote an entire weekend to organizing her closet. My husband would get a scrapbook of photos and ticket stubs from our honeymoon, along with a short story.

Fast forward to a few days before Christmas and I’m in a freezing sweat — both because I own bronchitis, which I certainly didn’t anticipate — and because I own about 15 gifts left to figure out.

The one person whose present I could put off until after the large day — my mother’s — flopped before it even began when I told her my closet-cleaning thought so as to make certain she was OK with it, and she basically hung up on me.
