DIY Bow Scrunchies – Mini Style!

How to make a scrunchie

Have you jumped on the scrunchie train yet? It’s one 90s trend that I’m so glad to see back. Many of you have used our DIY scrunchie free pattern to learn how to make a scrunchie, and today I’m back with another fun spin on the classic scrunchie. I’m sharing this Mini DIY Bow Scrunchie Tutorial, along with a free pattern and video tutorial!

Between my girls and I, there’s always at least a couple of us wearing a scrunchie at almost all times. They’re perfect for everything from a top knot to a loose low pony tail. And I promise, once you learn how to make a scrunchie, you’ll be addicted!

They’re fun and fast to sew up, and you can make one for every outfit in your closet using your favorite fabric scraps! Throw on a DIY Be Kind T-shirt and you’re set.

Lola loves to wear her hair half back with a scrunchie lately, which got me thinking it would be cute to have a pile mini scrunchies around for hairstyles that aren’t pulling up quite as much hair as a regular scrunchie can hold.
