Using the edge of the presser foot as a stitch guide, begin sewing at the pin, 1 1/2" from the top and stop at the other pin, 1 1/2" from the bottom.

STEP 4: TURNING TUBE

With right sides together, align two short edges together and pin in place. Sew together using the edge of the presser foot as the seam guide. Finger press this seam open. Then, press the scrunchie flat.

STEP 6: INSERTING ELASTIC

Hair Scrunchie Tutorial - Insert Elastic

Attach a safety pin to one end of the elastic and feed the elastic though the tube making sure not to loose the other end of the elastic in the tube. To make sure the other end of the elastic does not slip accidentally into the tube, I safety pin the elastic end to the fabric.

STEP 7: FINISHING UP

Overlap the ends of the elastic and stitch them together by hand or with a sewing machine. Close the opening by either hand stitching it closed or edge stitch around the outside edge. If you are not sure how to edge stitch, our Edge Stitch Tutorial.would be helpful. A straight stitch or a decorative stitch can be used.

You're done!
