Over the years and, in particular, with the arrival of the first collection of scrunchies from the brand "Scunci", the accessory has managed to gain popularity.
Colorful, playful and relaxed, it corresponded perfectly to the dress codes of the 1980s and 1990s. For a whole decade, the darling reigned over the world of accessories, embellishing every hairstyle, from the most basic to the most elaborate. However, his reign ended with the arrival of the rubber bands in 2000.

How to make a scrunchie yourself?
When you're not too good at sewing, the task of making your own favorite can seem really impossible. However, the simplicity of our tutorial proves that this is not the case at all, even for non-handymen.
- 2 pairs of scissors (sewing and haberdashery)
- 1 cotton fabric unit
- 1 spool of thread
- 1 rule
- 1 tailor's chalk to mark out the measurements on the fabric
- 1 sewing needle
- 1 elastic band 5 mm wide
- some pins
- 1 safety pin
Stages of realization:
Start by cutting your elastic. To do this, add 2 cm to the length of your handle. Then try to outline the strips of fabric using chalk and a ruler (14 cm by 50 cm). Cut the fabric and fold it in half (on the wrong side). Pin and sew 1 cm from the side edge, in the blind stitch. Then turn the band over to put it on the right side. Use the safety pin to use the elastic and sew the two ends together. The same goes for the ends of the fabric strip. Now you just have to cut the threads.
