I did not inherit my mom's sewing skills. Every time I work up the gumption to sit down at a sewing machine, something goes wrong. The thread breaks or tangles, the fabric snags, the needle gets stuck....and I'm easily frustrated. So I explore other crafty avenues that do not require a sewing machine. Felt, for example, is a fabric I can work with. It's cheap, stiff, cuts easily, and doesn't fray. This is one of my first attempts at a felt flower. Nothing spectacular, but hey, it's not like I'm selling it on Etsy.
There comes a time in the course of every haircut, that things get a little extra challenging. At which point I have a few options: 1) re-learn how to do my hair, 2) get a haircut, or 3) give up. This is me in the give up phase, slowly coming around to re-learning, until I can make arrangements for a haircut.
