The last time I was at the wheel of a sewing machine was in 7th grade – back in the days when girls were required to take home economics. I did manage to make one poorly fitting fluorescent green shirt.
Others seem to have a natural knack for crafting. Count Jessie of Bicitoro among those who know how to steer a Singer. She recently made a snazzy looking Reflective Inner Tube Belt from a couple of discarded flat tubes and some reflective stickers.
I want one.
If you are so inclined, you can follow Jessie’s step-by-step tutorial and create your own fabulous belt.
She also makes really nice custom cycling jerseys fashioned out of upcycled merino wool sweaters.
