Fabric can be cotton or knit.

  • 22 in. x 4 in. piece of fabric
  • 9 inches of 1/4" elastic
  • Coordinating thread

This tutorial makes a fuller scrunchie.  If your fabric piece is less than 4 inches wide, it will make for a narrower scrunchie.  This is a perfect scrap buster project.  You can even piece together your smaller scraps to make the full 22 in. x 4 in. piece of fabric.
