Sew Easy Scrunchies
Sew Easy Scrunchies
Is it possible to have enough hair scrunchies? I didn't think so!
To celebrate Autumn, I'm sharing my sew easy scrunchies that I made in a lightweight flannel in pumpkin spice colors.
I love these two plaid flannel prints I found at Joann fabrics.
And you can make these so easily by following my written instructions below or the video tutorial I posted on Instagram.
I get up to all kinds of fun crafts for kids and big kids (you!) every Tuesday morning at 10a Pacific Time.
Halloween Hair Flair
I hope you try making these easy to sew scrunchies that are great for gift giving.
We're making a mess of them to hand out in Halloween Boo Bags this season.
Trick-or-Treating is likely on hold, so we're working out ways to celebrate and treat our friends this year. A soft flannel scrunchie sounds like a good idea!

Quick craft to celebrate #pumpkinspice season!🎉 I walk you through how to sew a scrunchie in just 5-10 minutes. The time varies due to potential needle threading needs. Come see how I do it under pressure!🤣 Pull out your sewing machine or needle and thread and cozy up for some crafting with me. 💕 #allarewelcome 🗽
Sew Easy Scrunchie Materials
- 1 piece 21" long x 3.5" wide plaid flannel cut on the bias
- 1 piece 7" long x .5" wide elastic - Any width elastic is fine. I use .5" wide because I sew it together on my sewing machine with a zigzag stitch, but you could just as easily tie a .25" piece together with a square knot
- Sewing machine or needle and thread
- Bodkin or large safety pin
How to Make Your Sew Easy Scrunchie
Start by sewing down the length (21") of your flannel fabric folded rights sides together.
BE SURE TO START AND END 1" SHORT OF END OF TOP AND BOTTOM.
Please see the video above for visual instructions.
Take your bodkin or safety pin and attach it to one end of the tube.
Pull the bodkin half way through the tube.
Now sew the two short ends together (3.5" wide).
Pull the tube out from the 2" hole and thread your elastic through.
Sew or tie your elastic ends together.
Fold in the edges of your 2" hole and top stitch with your machine or needle and thread to close cleanly.
That's it! You're done. Now go throw in a pony and have some fun!
