Teeny Tiny Scrunchies!

My daughter REFUSES to wear anything in her hair. I can sneak a little tiny rubber band in there to make a ponytail, but that's it! So I had to come up with a solution to this, because those little rubber bands were not cute enough! So I made some teeny, tiny scrunchies! 

What you will need is:
1/4 in. elastic
Safety pin

I cut my fabric into strips, (depending on what size you want them will depend on how big your strip is) mine are 1.5 x 4in.
Fold them long ways right sides together, and sew up the long side, leaving both sides open
 Now take a safety pin and attach it to one side and pull it through the tube to make it right side out.
Cut your elastic into 3in. strips
Attach the safety pin to the elastic and pull it through the tube. I safety pinned the two ends together until I sewed it so it would stay
Now sew the elastic together
Next tuck one end under like the above picture and then tuck the other end inside it and hand stitch it together.
And you're done!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far!
