… And You’re Invited! (Details Below)
Before I break down this adorable DIY bow scrunchie, let me first say I’ve really been getting back into sewing lately and it’s been such a fun escape! I’ve always loved crafts and grew up doing them practically every day, especially during the Summer months. My mom would sign my sister and I up for everything from art classes to sewing camp and I always looked forwarded to it.
As an adult I feel like I spend a good portion of my “down time” either crafting, reading, or DIYing something for our house. I just really enjoy making things with my hands, even if it doesn’t turn out perfect (which it never does!). It’s fun just trying something new.
Over the years Carly and I have bonded over our love of crafts and during the past few months we’ve both gotten some extra mileage out of our sewing machines. When she texted me a DIY Bow Scrunchie Pattern , I ordered fabric on the spot!
We decided if it was as easy (and as fun) as it looked then we would do a virtual craft night and invite you all to join in and fire up your sewing machines! Well… I’m here to say, not only are they SUPER easy to make, they are addicting!! I whipped up two over the weekend and was scouring my sewing drawer for more fabric to make more. It’s seriously one of THE most satisfying crafts I’ve ever done.
