Like many Americans, I jumped back into my love of crafting when quarantine began a year ago. But prone to frustration and now, less free time than in those initial two weeks, I found myself leaving projects unfinished and supplies untouched.
Much of my crafting includes upcycling old or thrifted clothes, but working with a sewing machine can get tedious. You’ve got to design a pattern, cut it out, and meticulously pay attention to detail. It’s a time-consuming process, but essential to my style and sustainably keeping up with trends.
