Are you looking for a new, creative hobby and also happen to love fashion? If so, there are some great options that allow you to combine the two! Here are some ideas for hobbies well worth trying that will allow you to customise your look as well. 

Jewellery Making

There’s something magical about crafting your own jewellery pieces that perfectly complement your style. With just a few basic tools and materials, you can create stunning necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more. You can experiment with some memory wire and some different beads, gemstones, charms and pendants to design pieces that reflect your personality and taste rather than relying on what’s in the shops- you could even have a go at making fine jewellery with some more specialist tools and materials. Whether you prefer dainty and delicate or bold and statement-making, the possibilities are endless when it comes to jewellery making.


When you can sew your own clothes, the fashion world is your oyster! From chic dresses and stylish tops to tailored pants and cosy jackets, sewing allows you to create custom garments that fit you like a glove. Invest in a good quality sewing machine and stock up on fabrics in your favourite colours and prints. With a bit of practice and patience you can make just about anything in the perfect size and fit for you, or you could tailor and customise pieces that you’ve found at the charity shop to give them a new lease of life. 


If you’re looking for a relaxing and portable hobby that gives beautiful results, give crochet a try. With just a hook and some yarn, you can create a wide range of stylish accessories, including scarves, hats, gloves and even trendy crop tops. Crochet allows you to play with different stitches and textures, giving your creations a one of a kind look and feel, and it’s particularly good at creating boho style pieces like bags that are super fashionable right now. 


Instead of making your own items from scratch how about adding a personal touch to your wardrobe with the art of embroidery. You could go with intricate floral motifs to playful geometric patterns, embroidery allows you to embellish clothing, accessories and even shoes with unique designs. You don’t need fancy equipment to get started—just a needle, embroidery floss, and some fabric are all you need to begin your stitching. It’s a fun hobby for anyone that loves clothes!

Shoe Customisation

Don’t just consider clothes, put your stamp on your footwear too with shoe customization! This could mean jazzing up a pair of sneakers with colorful laces and patches or adding studs and rhinestones to a pair of heels. You could paint designs directly onto shoes or experiment with dip dying and sop much more. You could get inspired by current trends or let your imagination run wild. With a little creativity and some basic crafting supplies, you can give any pair of shoes a custom makeover that reflects your individuality and style.
