How To:

  • Measure and cut your material so it is just over 12cm in length and about 3 times the width of the elastic you are using
  • Stetch the elastic and pin the material over the elastic
  • Stitch the fabric all around the material, so it covers the entire length of the elasic
  • Stitch the ends together to create a loop and Presto a scrunchie!
