I was looking for some cool new ideas for my daughter to wear in her hair for school. She wasn't big on headbands or things like that but she did enjoy me putting her hair up in a ponytail. So I decided to come up with a creative type of scrunchy that would give her something no one else had. Since then I have continue to make them for my daughter, her friends, family members, and even myself. These can be done in any color and with almost any type of yarn.
