Some members of the BurdaStyle team started their sewing career with scrunchies..some of them even started little businesses and sold their little creations to girlfriends. We wanted to share with you how to make those easy fun hairbands, that also make a great gift.

Material Notes

Elastic, 1/2" wide Fabric (we recommend printed cotton)

    Although I would never wear a scrunchie out in public….I have to admit that I do wear them to bed as I have long hair and in the summer it gets too warm to sleep with it down…a scrunchie is soft and doesn’t dig into the back of my head like an elastic band does…..the narrow style and fabric definitely make it more modern!

    I don’t think we should try to bring back Scrunchies. Why don’t we adopt the fascinator or beautiful hats we all saw today at the Royal wedding. I don’t want to wear fabric dougnuts on my head, ugh!

    It needs a remake, I’m confident it can become a trend nowadays too!:)

    Scrunchies? Is it 1992? Sorry Burdastyle, but this is not something you would ever see me make / wear!

    I thought people stopped wearing scrunchies 10 years ago…

    Memories! I think my first machine sewing project was a scrunchie. Making them thinner like this, with a modern fabric, is a great way to modernize them.
