When I was in high school I loved scrunchies. I remember making scrunchie upon scrunchie on my mothers sewing machine using her fabric scraps. They were cool once and I have been itching to make some more for ages and give them a come back!
I don't think I'm the first. I have seen them around. When I eventually got around to making them, I was surprised how much the girls loved them. Goose was wearing hers every day to school and refusing to wear anything else, so I thought I'd make one to match her school uniform!
I found a second-hand dress at the school uniform shop for only $2 and used it to make a scrunchie and some fabric covered hairties.
As you can see in this pic, in true 80's style Goose is wearing her ponytail on the side as well!
These would make another great handmade gift for girls.
If you'd like me to write up a tutorial, let me know.
Do you find the comeback of 80's fashion a little disturbing?
Or are you embracing it?
