I promise I really did use a needle with thread....just today....to repair this scrunchie.
My thread doesn't match but I didn't have any quilting thread this brown color. The elastic on these scrunchies gives way where the 2 ends are sewn together. Then it is too loose to hold my hair.
So I sewed through part tightly and made a loose stitch which I sewed through several times tightly and repeated until the loose area once again had elastic that worked.
I not only use these for pony tails, I normally twist my hair into a bun and wrap it twice with a scrunchie to hold it. It doesn't pull my hair and pins don't fall out everywhere.
So that's the extent of my sewing this week. The garden has been calling and I've been picking blackberries, oh man, they are good.
