How to Sew a Scrunchie

April 22, 2019

How to Sew a Scrunchie- the hottest hair trend of the season is so easy to DIY!

How to Sew a Scrunchie Love them or hate them, the scrunchie is back! What makes the scrunchie feel fresh this time around is the way the hair is styled. Gone are the teased ponytails of the late 80s. The new way to wear a scrunchie is with hair loosely pulled back in a low pony or bun.

Scrunchies in quality fabrics can be pricey- this leather one is $175 and this silk-satin one is $120. Luckily, scrunchies are fast and easy to sew! They also make for a great scrap busting project. The versions I made are in cotton (the blue/white gingham), rayon (the white multi) and silk (the Sienna). If you’re new to sewing, I recommend sticking to cotton. It’s easy to cut/sew and it doesn’t slip as much as rayon and silk.
