How to make a flower scrunchy, non-sew project

Miyu, with her scrunchy
Hello! Today we went to a small playing space for kids. It has lots of toys and Miyu enjoyed them very much.
She wears her new scrunchy. It's with fleece fabric and good for folding her hair.

I found an easy way to make non-sew scrunchies with felt from a Japanese book. Fleece or thick wool fabrics are also good. You need only fabrics, a piece of elastic, scissors and a hair pin.

At first, cut fabrics in approx. 2 inches square or circle pieces. The way from the book was in circle. It's a little hard for me so I cut fabrics in square pieces.
Please make approx. 20 pieces for one scrunchy. You can mix colors.

Then fold it in bias and cut two parts like the picture, so you make two holes in one piece.

Prepare a piece of 8 inches elastic and lace it with a hair pin (or bodkin) thorough the two holes.

Knot the elastic. That's all! If you cut fabrics in squares, it takes only 30 minutes or so.
Non-sew scrunchies
Miyu calls them "Flower". So I named them "flower scrunchies".
The center one is with wool and felt fabrics. The back ones are with fleece. The Miyu's one(The smallest one) is with circle pieces.

Please make beautiful scrunchies!
See you !!!!
Miyu with her best friend

It's very cute and I love it.
It looks like flower!
As you know,I'm poor at sawing...
But if I try your way of doing,
I don't have to use needle and thread!
I think I can make it(←really?)

Dear Mai,

Just wanted to share with you this baby mobile I recently finished and which was inspired by your sweet sarubobos. I wanted to do something with your sarubobos for a long time, but now I'm expecting a baby girl (I'm due this Thursday, the 19th!!) and decided it would be great to do a mobile for her crib with these little men. I love them so much! I have posted a picture in my blog, if you want to see how inspiring your work is!

Best wishes for you and your family! :)
