Scrunchies are fashion accessories of the 90s, that has made a comeback. Every 90s girl must have had a scrunchie of some sort. I can remember wearing fabric scrunchies and crocheted scrunchies with pearls. I had even tried to make some, if not with the great finish.
Using elastic on your hair can tangle and harm it while you pull it out. A scrunchie, with its fabric covering, is soft on your hair. Hair scrunchies will make your hair look fabulous. You can wear them with any outfit you wear. They can also be worn around the wrist as a fashion accessory.
The advantage of making scrunchies for yourself is that you can make them in matching fabrics with your outfit. They can be made in different colors and prints and you can have fun making it. Here you can see scrunchies made with cotton fabric in polka dots and florals. You can sew the scrunchies in satin and velvet for a totally different look and a softer feel.
Here I have shown how to hand-sew a scrunchie in just 15 minutes or so. If you are somebody who likes machine sewing more, you can try that too! This is also a very easy and quick sew project that can be tried by any beginner seamstress.
