I was inspired by all this talk of crabs, so I drew a crab too :D

As the media&marketing rep for the music&arts club on campus, I decided to help kick-start and maintain a blog for the club!
I think it's kinda creative, and something the other clubs on campus haven't tried yet.

So I've made a scrunchie (see below!!!), and I wanted to share how to make them!


Materials:
Fabric- I used a fat quarter and used 16cm x 50cm (any fabric that is somewhat flexible is good- don't use something that's too stiff otherwise you'll be struggling later on!)
Scissors- make sure that they're sharp enough to cut the fabric!
Sewing needle & thread (preferably the thread is colour matched) (or machine- up to you!)
26cm Elastic (I used 6mm braided)

Steps:
- Cut fabric to shape and fold in half longways, pattern/nice side in
- Start sewing the fabric and leaving a centimetre gap towards the short edge side, and about a centimetre in- I used a running stich, but whatever you use is fine as long as it joins the fabric together to make a tube!
- Once sewing is done- start flipping the tube outside in! Use a pencil to help you if the tube gets stuck partway.
- Measure out and cut 26cm of elastic and then thread it through the tube, bunching up the fabric as you go. Tie or sew the elastic ends together.
- Place one end of open scrunchie into the other, and then sew closed.

There you have it! A scrunchie! :D

Wow! That looks gorgeous! I've been experimenting sewing scrunchies and other small projects with fabric scraps as a way to learn more about my sewing machine. Do you sew with a machine as well, or is it usually only by hand? I LOVE the pink! Oh my goodness, flipping the tubes inside out is a major effort! I'm sure there's a better way than what I do, but it always seems to take me ages!

It is!

I've been doing them by hand as our sewing machine is somewhere in storage ahaha! :) I love this pink too, but I found a gorgeous bit of blue material today at Spotlight and its so soft and I'm in love <3 (I found in an offcut bin too, so bargain!!!)

Flipping the tubes is a bit of a pain, unless you make them pretty wide I find! There's a way to make them with glue apparently that lets you not have to flip the tube, but I'm unconvinced haha!
