  • Elastic rubber band OR hair elastic good quality, not easy to break
  • Scrap Fabric
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Sewing Machine and matching thread color
  • Measuring tape or ruler


  • Cut your scrap fabric to measure 4” wide by 18” long.
  • Fold the fabric in half width wise with RIGHT sides together through the elastic band.
  • Using a sewing machine set to single needle stitch, sew along the cut edge with a 1/4” seam allowance, sandwiching the elastic band inside.
  • Start sewing 1” from the end and continue until you’re 1” from the end.
  • Turn the fabric RIGHT side out, with elastic encased inside.
  • Match the short ends with RIGHT sides of the fabric together. Sew the ends together with a ¼” seam allowance making sure to keep the elastic band away from the sewing needle.
  • Tuck the seam allowance inside and scrunchie will be formed.
  • To finish, fold the ends of the 1.5” gap inside and sew the hole closed along the edge.
