Recycling leftovers of fabric and rubber bands into cute hairknots

Since I was a little girl, I saw my mom sewing lots of things. I think that’s why I got interested in sewing. I was so proud going to school with clothes sewn by my mom. My clothes were well done and unique. I’ve always kept that feeling of pride. As I already liked creating myself my own stuff, it wasn’t that hard to throw me in this activity.

Over the years, I’ve collecter lots of fabric, especially leftovers. Leftovers are quite annoying. You don’t know what to do with them. You can’t do big pieces but you don’t want to throw them away. That’s the same problem with leftovers of rubber bands.

Last day, I got an idea. Actually, a YouTube video gave me the idea. I decided to use some of these leftovers to sew some hairknots.

Let me show you how I did.

You’ll need rectangular pieces. Fold them in their length(the pretty side on the inside) and sew all the way long, leaving a gap in the middle. It’ll be useful when reversing the fabric. [Picture 1]

Then, slip on the tube you made on itself [Pictures 2a]. Join the two sides [Picture 2b].

Using the gap you left, reverse and reveal the hairknot base. [Picture 3]

Put the rubber band inside and sew the two ends. [Picture 4] Close the gap with a few stitches and you’re done!

Tadaa! I made three of them, but I could do much more.

Aren’t they cute?!

That’s all for today’s post, I hope you like it.

Thanks for passing and reading my blog. I really appreciate. 🙂

I’ll talk to you soon in a next post,

Until then, take care of yourself ❤

Ady ❤
