Scrunchies with Riley Blake Gingham

Have you been bitten by the scrunchie bug like I have been?? I keep thinking I should *maybe* stop making them, but I also keep thinking of new ways to use different fabrics to make cute scrunchies…… so I guess I’ll never stop!

I recently made a fun set out of Riley Blake 1/8″ gingham fabrics. I think gingham is one of those styles that will never go out, or at least I hope not. It is such a classic pattern and is really versatile as a binding, quilt backing, feature fabric for a quilt top, hair accessory, basically anything!

For my scrunchies, I like to use the Martha Stewart tutorial (HERE) , which calls for essentially 3 1/2″ x 22″ of fabric plus 9″ of elastic. I bought a huge roll of elastic from amazon because it was cheaper than buying onesies twosies here and there. It makes it fun to feel a little like Oprah. “You get a scrunchie! You get a scrunchie!”

I used 1/8″ gingham in the following colors:

Navy, Gray, Lavender, Hot Pink, Coral, Yellow, Aqua, Teal, Black, Red, and Baby Pink

Now tell me. How do you feel about gingham? Is it an undying love or a trend you hope will fade?

  1. Hi!
    I am like you, love gingham but I also love Riley Blake.
    Unfortunately, I live in Europe and American fabrics are expensive due to customs duties but I was able to get a few of the ones above through an English shop online.
    I shall try these scrunchies. They are adorable.
    Thank you!
