Upcycling DIY – How to make a scrunchie from a t-shirt?

Scrunchies are such a fun way to add something a little bit special to your outfit – but, did you know that they’re super easy to make at home? Grab an old t-shirt you don’t wear anymore and follow the instructions below:

What You’ll Need to create your scrunchie

  • Fabric scraps from an old t-shirt
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Elastic band

Step 1 : Measurements are key

Start by measuring the fabric with a tape measure and pencil and then cut out the scraps with fabric scissors!

Step 2 : Start to sew your scrunchie

Next, turn the fabric inside out and fold along the long side. Make sure that the side you’ll later want to be visible is on the inside (we’ll turn the tube inside out later, so that the right side is facing out). Next, cut the fabric in half and then sew it together along the long side.

Step 3 : Add the elastic

Next, turn the fabric inside out. In the resulting tube you can then thread the elastic through. Depending on how big you want the scrunchie to be, you can vary the length of the elastic.

Step 4 : The final touch

In the last step, just tie the two rubber ends together and sew the openings of the fabric together. It’s now time to enjoy your home made scrunchie !
