Weekend Reading: Famous Knitters + The Woman Who Started Cosplay
Why do we find it so intriguing when famous people have hobbies just like us? After seeing this picture of Katherine Hepburn knitting on set, I found more lists of celebrities who knit and sew. Antonio Banderas is likely doing well with bespoke tailoring by now and Sarah Jessica Parker recently took to social media while sewing a skirt with her daughter.
It’s almost as fun as spotting celebrities on sewing patterns.
Here are some more reads to enjoy this weekend.
