This sweet hair accessory is so easy to make and versatile to use, you'll want to make up a bunch!
Here it is tying up a messy bun.
Perfect to end a neat braid or ponytail.
And can even be worn as a headband!
So here's what you do.
Cut a strip of fabric 2" by the width of your fabric...or about 44" once selvedge is trimmed. This would be a perfect jelly roll project!
Finish the edges of the strip with a rolled hem.
Zig-Zag stitch 1/2" elastic down center of strip pulling elastic taut as you go. This will automatically create the ruffling effect once tension is released.
Sew or serge ends together and you're ready to wear!
If you were wanting to make this for an adult, I would suggest adding additional length to your strip if you want to wear it as a headband. This headband fits my daughter who is 9 snug.
Sometimes good things come from getting carried away ruffling! ;)
