Hello Everyone! I got a lot of request for another DIY post, after my DIY tie dye post. DIY scrunchies in particular was requested, and I thought it was the perfect idea!

I had some fabric scraps from other projects, and clothing, and I used those to make something new! It surprised me how fun and easy these were to make. Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! Believe me, when I say that this is the furry is sweater ever! The fabric is a knit furry fabric. It’s stretchy and the wrong side is clear to see, so it makes it much easier to sew.

It doesn’t take that long, but I would leave some time to vacuum and or lint roll. *A LOT*
