To practice sewing upholstery vinyl on my home sewing machine, I whipped up a quick pencil case for holding my bullet journal supplies on vacation in California. Read more in the full tutorial on Instructables.
Behold, the humble hair scrunchie! This fabric hair accessory has a somewhat contested reputation in fashion history, but there’s no denying its practical use as a gentle hair tie and fun DIY sewing project. Whether you’re planning a 90s throwback party or just want to wear something soft while sleeping, scrunchies whip up quickly and require very little fabric. Practice your skills from the Instructables Machine Sewing Class with a small batch of scrunchies.
For this easy sewing project, you will need:
- Fabric of your choice (I’m using polyester satin and silk dupioni to make extra slippery scrunchies)
- Thread to match your fabric
- Iron and ironing board
- Thin elastic
- Sewing machine with needles & bobbins
- Hand sewing needle
- Straight sewing pins
- Safety pin
- Seam ripper (optional)
- Rotary cutter, mat, and ruler (optional)
