Scrunchies are great to tie back your hair or to wear them as a bracelet around your wrist. Why not make your own? It takes little fabric, works in many different fabric qualities and they are quickly made. They even make a great little hand-made gift for special occasions. If you love sewing you can use scraps from other projects, why not from a clothing project, to add your personalized scrunchy to your outfit.
