Fabric of The Week 15 – Sari Scrunchies

 

Fabric of The WeekThis is a craft that Givie has perfected over the years from when Lane was little and had long hair.

It started with making scrunchies to match the dresses but was so easy to do any spare fabric was used up.

This one started with a bundle of Indian Sari silk. The range of beautiful colours were just calling out to be made into a bundle of scrunchies.

So easy to do, cut a bundle of long strips at least 20” or 50cms long and any width you choose. Then fold in half lengthways R.S together and stitch down the length. Then turn through to the right side.
