DIY scrunchies: 2 easy methods – one with no hand sewing, one with some hand sewing.
This is a beginner simple sewing project as part of our Learn to Sew in 2020 series with the Brother CS7000i sewing machine.
It’s also a good scrap buster for all the leftover fabric on hand and fat quarter-friendly.

For this sewing tutorial, I used woven quilting cotton fabric (non-stretchy), but you can use knit fabric (stretchy). You will need to make a few adjustments. Try using a longer piece of fabric like 24 inches, use a ballpoint needle in your sewing machine, and sew with a stretch stitch (#03 on the Brother CS7000i).
Fabric ( 4.5 x 21 inches – can be longer if you want more gathering) 1/2 inch
Braided Elastic ( 8.5 inches – can be longer, but also use longer piece of fabric if you do this)
Hand Sewing Needles
Iron + Ironing Board
Dritz Quick Turn Tool (optional)
As we start the new year 2020, I’m doing a video series on learning how to sew. This will be aimed at real beginners, someone interested in sewing but having no experience.
We’ll be using an entry level Brother CS7000i sewing machine going over the different parts / functions. If you’ve never used a sewing machine before, I want this to be a resource and guide.
