This is Stef’s pink lame scrunchie from Sunday’s beginner sewing class… Her very first sewing project! The squares with stitching on them are the stitch samples that we started with, and the ruffled pieces next to them are the ruffle samples that we worked on together. Making the scrunchies was a bit of a happy accident. We started with a group demo on making elastic casing. Someone cleverly noticed that the demo piece looked a little bit like a scrunchie – and voila! Pink scrunchies were whipped up in no time. There’s nothing better than learning how to make your own clothes!
