Amanda of BAD Stitch has done some incredible work on the designs for her latest pattern book on Greek Mythology. I was moved in particular by her thoughtful depiction of Medusa who was victimized but was always portrayed as a monster in pop culture. See Amanda’s IG post for more (trigger warning).
