Stay inspired with this collection of 21 awesome Instagram feeds to follow.

Creative entrepreneurs know how challenging managing multiple social media accounts can be. Sketching new designs on a drafting table or stitching away in front of a sewing machine creates the content that defines a successful presence and builds up your audience. Maintaining orders and answering emails is a delicate art that few can balance while putting their creative life and process in front of all to see.
