No-sew fleece scrunchies DIY – easy craft for kids
I have already sewed few types of scrunchies: the casual scrunchies, the pom pom scrunchies, the patchwork scrunchies and the ruffle ones. Today, I’ve made one more type, that is… no-sew scrunchie. When I saw this flower scrunchie tutorial, I wanted to make something similar, and I decided that I’ll use circles instead of squares – they seem to be perfect for this project.
It’s a fantastic craft for children – their cutting circles practice might help them in their scissors skills development. It’s also a great fun for girls – they can create their own handmade hair accessories.
For one no-sew scrunchie you will need:
- 18 circle pieces of fleece about 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter
- an elastic – 20 cm (8 inches) length
- 1 small safety pin and 1 scrap of fabric
Cut out 18 circle pieces of fleece about 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter. You can draw the circle using a glass, small bottle etc.
Fold each circle in half and make 2 small kerfs as shown in the picture below.
Then you have two holes in one circle.
Tie one end of the elastic to the scrap of fabric. Don’t tie too strong, it’s only for a while, to protect the circles from sliding the elastic out. Place the safety pin on the second end of the elastic. Use the small safety pin.
Place the circle right side up. Now tread the elastic through the holes as shown in the picture below.
Tread the elastic through the all circles one by one.
When you finish treading all the circles – remove the safety pin and untie the scrap.
Tie the two ends of elastic up together with a double knot.
Now distribute the circles around your elastic. That’s it.
