I love fashion, I am also terribly broke at times. As a grad student living in the big city, I have found that whenever I need a new accessory but am low on cash, it is wonderful to be able to reach into my stash and grab a skein of yarn and whip up a headband, scarf or crochet a flower to be pinned to a jacket.
If you’re broke and needing to both be entertained and simultaneously revamp your wardrobe, crafting your own fashion might be a good option for you. Sewing machines, notions, fabric, yarn and sequins can be found cheap if you swap with friends, peruse thrift and vintage stores or scavenge yard sales. Modifications to your clothing can be made without any craft supplies whatsoever- DIY fashion is highly unique and doesn’t have to be expensive!
