Scrunchie Upgrade
Many years ago I bought this really great hair accessory, the name of which I have no clue. I have looked for another one over the years, but no success. So, you know what I had to do. :)

When I took these pictures, my daughter had just gotten done straightening her hair. A ponytail was as far as she would go, but if you put your hair in a loose bun, this looks even more beautiful.

  • Step 1

    Turn each short end over 1/4", and then turn over again, forming nice hemmed edge. Stitch.

  • Step 2

    Sew long edge of each fabric piece, forming 2 tubes. Turn right side out.

  • Step 3

    Sew one short end of each tube closed, enclosing one end of elastic inside the seam.

  • Step 4

    Thread elastic through tube and sew into seam at other end.

  • Step 5

    You now have two tubes of fabric with elastic sewn inside, caught in each end seam.

    Step 6

    Use adhesive to attach each tube to the top underside of each hair comb. Tubes will overlap in the center of comb. (Make sure your long seams are facing towards the hair comb, so that when you are wearing it you won't see the seam.

    Step 7

    Allow to dry for several hours. To wear, slide one hair comb into hair, then, holding other comb in hand, stretch across to other side of head and slide other comb into hair. Fluff fabric. For ponytail, pull hair through, between the two tubes, encircling ponytail before inserting second comb into hair.

OK, added pic of combs. I just call it "Scruchie Upgrade".
It's really pretty in person, and you can make it with any kind of material.

The comb thing sounds like something my mom has... Could you put a pic of the comb part? I might be able to help with what it's called.♥
