Materials Needed:

  • Any Fabric of your choice – Lighter fabrics such as satin and silk are great options but you can use any fabric you like, even cotton or velvet to make a diy scrunchie. You will need about 13-inch x 5 inch fabric pieces for each finished scrunchie.
  • Fabric marker – You can use a pencil or a piece of chalk.
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Needle or a sewing machine – I recommend a sewing machine if you’re making these in bulk to save time.
  • Matching Thread
  • Elastic ribbon – 1/4 inch elastic is a good choice.

How to Make a Scrunchie With a Bow

Here’s how to make bow scrunchies & how to make DIY scrunchies (steps 1-7 only for a basic scrunchie.)

Step 1: Measure and mark the fabric for the scrunchie base. The longer the fabric, the more ruffles. We prepared a 13-inch X 3-inch piece of fabric for the scrunchie.

Step 2:Fold the 3-inch side in half and sew along the open sides.

Step 3: Carefully turn out the right side of the sewed fabric.

Step 4: Measure and cut out an elastic band (1/3 of the fabric’s length). Use a safety pin to attach the elastic ribbon with the scrunchie base on any one open side and attach another safety pin on the other end of the elastic.

Step 5: Insert the open end of the safety pin-attached side of the elastic ribbon through the small opening in the scrunchie base. Draw the elastic all the way through the other side and pull out the elastic.

Step 6: Take off both safety pins without letting the elastic go. Hold both ends of the elastic tightly and sew them together to secure/close the open ends.

Step 7: Now, sew the open sides of the scrunchie base using a sewing machine or by using needle and thread; whichever you find easier.

Step 8: Prepare a piece of fabric for the bow part. You can measure and cut out a rectangular fabric with round corners. We prepared a 2.5-inch X 6-inch piece of fabric with round corners.

Step 9: Fold the fabric in half, lengthwise and sew along the open side but remember to keep a small open end.

Step 10: Turn the right side of the bow fabric out through the small open end.

Step 11: Stitch and close the small open end of the bow base. Draw the bow base through the center of the scrunchie and keep even length on both sides.

Step 12: Tie a tight knot around the scrunchie band by using both ends of the bow base; and done!
