How to make scrunchies hair ties!

Hey y’all, today’s tutorial is a throwback to my childhood. My mom always said that fashion was circular, and I’ve started to see the reappearance of things from my younger years, with a modern twist of course. Today’s scrunchies are in rich fabrics like velvet and silk, as well as old standbys like t-shirt knits.

I remember these as some of my first sewing projects too. Scrunchies are a great way to use scraps.

And the best part of this project is that the method to make them also works to make and ! The only difference is that for scrunchies you add elastic, and of course for each project you cut the fabric to different sizes.

How to Make Scrunchies

To make your own, you’ll need:

- 8 in of 1/4 inch wide elastic – make this 9 if your hair is really thick

So, here’s a little video on how to make them. You can also watch it on, or you can scroll down for the written instructions.

To start, gather your supplies.

Fold the fabric in half, right sides together, matching the long edges. Stitch, leaving a 1 inch gap near one end.

How to Make Scrunchies

Turn the tube halfway to the right side, so that you can match the short raw edges. Make sure to do this so that the gap in the stitching stays on the outside of the tube.

Match the seams and the short raw edges. Stitch the raw edges together using the needle and thread; this tube is too small to fit around the sewing machine presser foot.

After stitching the ends together, reach through the gap in the stitching from step 1 and turn the scrunchy right side out – you should have a ring.

Thread the safety pin through one end of the elastic and feed the elastic through the ring/tube. make sure not to lose the elastic end inside.

Overlap the ends of the elastic and stitch them together. Then and you’re done!

When I was a teenager these were wildly popular, you had to have at least one to match every outfit. I was just really learning how to sew and shorten pants so for every pair of pants I shortened it was enough to make 2 scrunchies, I had scrunchies like you wouldn’t believe. At that time I had to figure out how to make them myself. But I have to say it was awesome.

My granddaughter just asked me to make her some. Thanks for sharing.

I still match them to my outfits lol
