Hair Scrunchie

Materials

  • 4-by-22-inch piece of fabric
  • Straight pins
  • Needle and thread
  • Safety pin
  • Scissors
  • 9-inch length of 1/4-inch elastic
  • Tape

Directions

  1. Have your child fold the fabric in half lengthwise with the wrong side out and pin the long edges together.
  2. Sew a seam along the pinned edge to make a fabric tube.
  3. Attach a safety pin to one end of the tube.
  4. Tuck it inside the tube and push it all the way through the tube so that the tube turns inside out. (The fabric will now be right side out.)
  5. Remove the safety pin.
  6. Attach the safety pin to one end of the elastic.
  7. Tape the other end of the elastic to your work surface.
  8. Use the safety pin to thread the elastic through the fabric tube.
  9. Remove the tape, overlap the ends of the elastic, and sew them together.
  10. Tuck one end of the fabric tube into the other, making sure the seam matches up.
  11. Fold the edge of the outer end under.
  12. Stitch the folded end to the tucked-in end all the way around.
