Summary
Are you a Nasty Woman ready to smash the patriarchy with a needle and thread? Proudly proclaim your feminism with your very own DIY Bleeding Heart T-shirt? Or stage a protest with the rest of the girls, wearing knitted Pussyhats? Be part of the revolution by reclaiming the "domestic" arts of knitting, sewing, and more -- to channel your feminist rage. With pictures, step-by-step instructions, bonus patterns, and tips for crafters of all skill levels from beginner to advanced, Crafting the Resistance is the book for women's rights activists on a DIY path to self-determination. Put your homemaking and protesting skills to the test with thirty-five girl-powered, easy-to-make, kickass projects such as: "Snowflake" knitted wristers; "Bleeding Heart" T-shirts; clear vinyl protest tote bags to speed up security screenings; the Pussyhat as knitted hats, holiday ornaments, throw pillows, and cat beds; "Nasty Nag" zippered pouches; well read bookmarks; and more! Take politics into your own hands, literally, and craft your message out into the world. Includes an essay and quotes on the history and importance of craftivism
