The next project I am going to create is a scrunchie because I got the fantastic suggestion from both Alex and Allysia on my previous felt owl post. When I went looking for an easy hand sewing scrunchie tutorial I found Sew Crafty Me. The blog had lots of pictures and easy to read text so I think it will be a useful place to begin.
When I was reading the instructions, they indicated that I will need to know how to do a backstitch and the ladder stich. I already know how to the ladder stitch, but I have never done the backstitch before. So before I start making scrunchies and reliving my 90’s, I need to practice the backstitch.
Here is her YouTube video on how to backstitch:
I used white felt and red embroidery thread to practice my stitches so it would show up well in photos. When I make the scrunchies, I’ll probably use a coordinating thread so it doesn’t show.
I think I am ready to start making scrunchies now! What colours or patterns do think I should make?
