How Hair Scrunchies Save on Waste
Hair scrunchies are a popular accessory that can add a touch of style to any outfit. However, they can be expensive to buy and are often made from non-sustainable materials. Fortunately, it's easy to make hair scrunchies out of scrap fabric that would otherwise go to waste. All you need is a few basic sewing supplies, some elastic, and your favorite scrap fabric.
To start, cut your scrap fabric into strips that are about 3 inches wide and 12 inches long. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise, with the right sides facing each other, and sew along the long edge to create a tube. Turn the tube right side out and feed a piece of elastic through it, securing the ends of the elastic with a few stitches. Then, sew the two open ends of the tube together, making sure to catch the elastic in the seam. And voila, you have a hair scrunchie made from scrap fabric!
Not only is making hair scrunchies out of scrap fabric an easy and affordable way to add to your accessory collection, but it's also a sustainable and eco-friendly practice. By repurposing leftover fabric, you are reducing waste and promoting a circular economy. So why not get creative with your scrap fabric and make some stylish hair scrunchies today?
