First, cut your fabric 40 inches long and 4 inches wide. The wider you cut the fabric, the fuller the scrunchie. The narrower, the thinner.
Measure your elastic about 12 inches, or smaller depending on how tight you want your scrunchie to be.
Turn the raw ends of the fabric in and sew in place.
Next, with the right sides of the fabric together, sew the long side of the fabric and turn it right side out.
With a safety pin attached to one end of the elastic, thread the elastic through the tube, making sure neither end of the elastic gets lost in the middle!
Sew the two ends of the elastic together.
Sew the open edges closed with a top seam.
Don't forget to trim your elastic!
