I have it on good authority....ie via bloggers....that scrunchies are back in fashion. I remember making these about 30 years ago...I guess the wheel is constantly revolving. I decided to make one the other day for Miss M to firstly see how she liked it and secondly if it would stay in her hair. It was a big hit with her and it did stay in place.
I have been requested by Miss M to "make lots more please grandma". Not only do they look pretty in her hair but they are so much kinder to the hair than elastic.
