How to Make a Fabric Scrunchie

This guide will show you how to make your very own fabric scrunchie. It’s a simple and easy diy project that is perfect for a beginner sewer and uses a small amount of fabric so is great for using up scraps of fabric you may have lying around.

We have used the William Morris Mini Strawberry Thief Navy fabric which is a craft cotton fabric, that has a beautiful small scale design and is easy to sew with. This make will work with many fabrics such as velvet and linen, so let your imagination run wild and make a scrunchie to completely suit your style. If you would like to make a more statement scrunchie, try increasing the width of the fabric which will create more volume.
