Scarf Scrunchie

by - April 16, 2020

Do you have any fabric scraps leftover from previous projects? If that's the case, don't toss them out. Instead, make hair scrunchies. I have a lot of unused bits that I've accumulated over the years and decided today would be the perfect opportunity to put them to good use. Except for this time, I'm not going to make traditional scrunchies. Instead, I tried something else and made a scarf scrunchie. They've become increasingly popular in recent years. I've never purchased one, so why not make a few now that I have so much free time? Hair scrunchies, after all, are considerably better for our hair and a lot cuter than normal hair ties.


  • Fabric scarp
  • Needle & thread
  • Elastic band
  • Safety pin
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape


1.) Cut a piece of fabric 22 inches by 4 inches. Fold the fabric in half with the right sides facing each other and pin in place.

2.) Stitch straight across, leaving a 1/2 inch seam allowance, remove the pins, and flip the tube inside out.

3.) Cut a piece of elastic 9 inches long, and place through the tube with a safety pin.

4.) Tie 2 knots to secure the elastic.

5.) Fold the edges in, overlap the ends together, and sew in place.

6.) To make the scarf, cut a piece of fabric, a shape similar to a triangle 28 inches wide by 18 inches.

7.) Fold over the edges twice, and press.

8.) Stitch around the entire scarf.

9.) Scrunch the scarf in the middle and tie it to the scrunchie.


You can always remove the scarf and just wear the scrunchie. It looks cute either way.
