Some leftover fabric bits & this free and easy pdf pattern and you can make these flirty scrunchies with a sweet little tie for pennies in less than a half an hour.

Gather your supplies and your free downloadable pdf pattern from my website commonsewing.com. Don't worry if you don't know how to sew ... pop over to 'learn to sew online' and I can teach you!

For this project, you will need:

  • sewing machine
  • thread
  • proper sewing needle
  • pins
  • marking tool
  • point turner
  • less than 1/4 yard of fabric
  • elastic 1/4” braided - 7” for thin hair, 8” for medium and 9” for thick hair
  • scissors & snips
  • seam ripper
  • hand stitching needle
  • safety pin
  • pattern assembled

Here is the video link in case you like to watch before you start to sew.

Print out your pattern and cut your fabric. Press your raw edges 1/4" where it says fold & press.

Fold your scrunchie and knot pieces in half lengthwise and sew 1/4" where marked. Using a safety pin, turn your scrunchie and knot right side out.

Pin your tie in half lengthwise with the right sides together and sew - be sure to leave the space open in the middle from notch to notch. Turn your tie right side out and push out the corners with your edge turner. Topstitch your opening closed. Set aside.

Feed your elastic through your scrunchie and tie with 1/2" tails. If your hair is thin, you might trim your elastic a bit to get a nice fit. Tuck the raw edge of the scrunchie inside of the folded edge and pin it. Topstitch it closed.

Mark the center point of the tie and pin it to your scrunchie with the center of the tie sitting over the topstitching of the scrunchie. Pin the tie to the scrunchie and tack in place.

Wrap the knot around the scrunchie & tie adn tuck the raw edge in to the pressed edge. Hand stitch closed.

Et voila! Congratulations on making this very cute scrunchie! Don't forget to tag @commonsewing when you share your make. Thanks for joining me and happy sewing! - Bonnie
