Hi everyone! I’m tapping out this post on my iPad and using the WordPress app to do everything I did on my laptop —- which broke and succumbed to the injuries. Until I replace it, this is how I will blog. Tap-blogging is a new experience for me; an external keyboard will be joining this iPad very soon.
Let’s move to the scrunchie bits. I’ve never attempted to make a scrunchie — you know, that relic from the nineties? Yet here I am because Sarah Mirza asked for a silk scrunchie.
They are the easiest thing to make, right? Nevertheless, I googled the process on YouTube; okaaay, cut a fabric strip of sufficient width, fold and sew into a tube, turn tube to right side, thread elastic through it, blah, blah, blah. But wait just a minute, right there in the video as the presenter was creating the fabric tube, I sat up straight and paid full attention. The fabric tube was made in a novel way! It’s all in the folding and enclosing part of the fabric inside.
In one continuous seam, the fabric tube was sewn, after which turning to the right side was a cinch — and the right side was already in a circle. I mean, you have to go watch it. The presenter demonstrates it twice in the video — and I still backed up to watch it a third time. I am dubbing this the Burrito Scrunchie. Serious shirt makers will know what I mean.
Okay, guys, that’s the excitement for today. See you next week! —— Samina
