DIY Scrunchies : TCP x Wabbott

After cropping multiple pairs of pant legs to get range of desired inseams for customers, I was left with a bunch of pant leg fabric scraps that I couldn’t just throw away. Most times I could use the denim scraps to patch and repair any denim, but for the others…. I kind of just kept them hoping a little DIY project would come up. Hoarder tendencies… I mean waste conscious. ;)

Last year I started seeing a resurgence of scrunchies in the market and thought… hey… I wonder how easy it is to make. After mocking up a pattern and sewing a sample in muslin, I realized the size of material needed was very similar to all these pant leg cut offs I accumulated. I went back to my sewing machine, made a handful and confirmed it was a perfect DIY upcycle project.

Fast forward to a month ago, I connected with Isabelle Abbott who makes her own adorable plant dyed scrunchies. We started chatting and decided to collaborate on a DIY post! So if you’re planning to crop any pants anytime soon… check out the sewing tutorial, dust off your sewing machine or host a sewing party with friends… IT IS SCRUNCHIE TIME.
