Hair Scrunchie with Bow Tutorial

Hair Scrunchie with Bow top

As I promised you yesterday, today’s tutorial is on ‘pimped up’ version of hair scrunchie. I’ve been slightly obsessed with bows recently (in case you haven’t noticed), and I couldn’t resist putting a bow on a scrunchie!

You’ll Need (for scrunchie & bow):

Hair Scrunchie with Bow tool
  • fabric (for scrunchie) 8 x 50cm
  • fabric (for bow) 8 x 10cm
  • fabric (for loop) 6 x 8cm
  • elastic cord 15 cm

Instructions:

1) Make a scrunchie with the same method shown on this tutorial.

2) Fold the fabric for the bow (8 x 10cm) in half lengthwise, right sides facing. With 1cm seam allowance, sew along the edges and leave about 4cm opening in the middle (sew along the red lines shown in the photo).

3) Turn the fabric inside out from the opening, and close the opening by hand stitch.

4) Accordion fold along the middle to create the pleats, and hand stitch the centre.

If you want a simple scrunchie with a bow, your journey ends here :) If you are craving more ‘bling’ like me, please follow the steps below!

You’ll Need (for bead embroidery):

  • sew-on Swarovski rhinestone (you can use hot-fix as well)
  • beads of your choice
  • beading needle and thread
  • small piece of felt (the size depends on how big you want the embroidery to be. My circle is 2.5cm in diameter)

Instructions:

1) Sew on the rhinestone in the middle of the felt.

2) Thread the beads through a beading needle until you can wrap them around the rhinestone.

3) Exit out the needle right next to the first bead so that it forms a loop.

4) And from now, it’s stitching time to secure them in place. Come up from the first bead (at the rhinestone side),

5) and exit out across the bead.

When you exit out, make sure that the threads are between the beads (this time, between the first and the last beads).

6) Repeat step 4 and 5 at every other bead, and when you come to the end, knot at the back of the felt.

7) Repeat step 2 to 6. You can add as many rows of beads as you fancy, of course.
