Scrunchies were the surprising fashion trend of 2013 and thanks to Cressida Bonas and Cara Delevingne, the Nineties hair accessory isn't going anywhere anytime soon. So - why not be totally original make your own? Rosie and Hannah from The New Craft Society tell us how...
- A scrap of fabric, about 3.5 x 14 inches (the more fabric you use the more scrunch you'll get)
- A plain hair bobble
- A needle
- Cut your fabric to the desired length
- Position right sides together around the hair bobble. You'll have to move the fabric around, bunching it up as you sew. This can be a little fiddly - don't worry if the fabric keeps slipping as you're going to secure it with stitches in the next step.
- Tie a knot in the end of your fabric and sew the two pieces together along the raw edge using a running stitch. Keep your stitches fairly small to secure the fabric well. When you reach the other end, tie off the thread.
- You should now have a tube of fabric around the bobble.Turn this tube the right way around.
- Fold under the raw edges at the each end of the tube and sew the two ends together, using a slip stitch to keep the stitches hidden.
