Nothing quite brings back that 90’s nostalgia for me like one of my favorite hair accessories- the scrunchie! I won’t lie, a part of me died when we traded in our high side ponies topped with scrunchies for sleek ponytails with hair elastics. But no more are the days of sad, scrunchies-less ponies because they are back- and in a big way!
A few weeks back I was shopping when I saw a 3 pack of scrunchies at the mall. They were cute, bright, sparkly, and I knew my daughter would love them. I casually turn over the package and completely scoff at the $14.99 price tag. They suddenly became a lot less cute, especially since I had so much amazing fabric at home practically begging to be turned into scrunchies! But I will be honest, sewing elastic is one of my least favorite things, thus the Lazy Scrunchie was born!
To get started you only need a few things:
- A piece of any fabric (stretch or woven) measuring 18″ x 4″
- Hair elastics
- Sewing machine or sewing needle and thread
I plan on making so many of these for myself- if I can ever get my kiddo to stop picking out fabric for hers! I am dreaming of silks and velvets and rib knits- oh my! I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and it helps you pump up your hair accessory game in true 90’s fashion!
