Fold the fabric in half, right side in and pin. Stitch the long edge of the fabric and remove the pins.

2. Next, turn the fabric right side out. I found the easiest way to do this was to thread your finger into the fabric and using your thumb and finger roll up the fabric.

I taped the elastic to a pencil, wrapping masking tape around the elastic and pencil on each end. Thread the pencil (with elastic) onto the fabric, scrunching it up as you fish it through.

  1. use a length of elastic a little longer than the fabric you make the scrunchie. lay the elastic on the right side of the fabric even at one end and extending over the other end. fold the fabric lengthwise over the elastic and pin the end together where the elastic is even, pinning through the elastic. pin the lengthwise edge to sew. sew across the pinned end first, making sure that you sew the elastic firmly in place, then sew the length edges together. pull the elastic to work the the scrunchy right side out. next scrunch it up and cut the elastic to the desired length and baste it to the open end of fabric. fold the cut end of the fabric to the inside and sew as directed above.

  2. I find stitching the elastic makes the scrunchie smoother and also stronger than a knot that could come undone
