These fun colourful bunny ear scrunchies are a great scrap buster. Don’t waste any of your cute printed fat quarters. Make them plain, or add these cute bunny ears for an additional spring detail. Mix and match the patterns to make one for every outfit. A great project to sell at craft fairs, make gifts for easter or just for yourself.

Coloured fat quarters of your choice
All sewn edges use a 10mm seam allowance.
Cut a piece of scrap fabric 45x10cm. Fold in half, right sides together, lengthways and use your machine to sew a straight line down the long raw edge, leave a gap at one end.
Using a Safety pin to feed the ‘non gap’ end inside the tube, pull it to the other open short end (with the gap).
Line up the short raw tube ends together. Use a needle and thread to do a small, neat running stitch around in a loop roughly 1cm, from the raw edges.
Pull the whole tube through the gap, you should now have a ring of fabric pulled the right way around.
Cut a piece of elastic to 20cm. Use the safety pin to feed the elastic through the ring (through the open gap) take care not to loose the other end.
Join the elastic ends together with your sewing machine. Then use your needle and thread to sew up the gap using a slip stitch or use your machine close to the edge.
Your Scrunchie is ready for wearing. To add Bunny ears, use the template to cut two bow shapes from fabric and lay them right sides together.
Sew all the way around, roughly 5mm from the edge, leaving a gap in the centre. Cut notches in all curves, clip corners and turn right way out through gap.
Sew gap up neatly either by hand or machine. You can now tie the bunny ears in a knot around your scrunchie.
