You've knitted your Pussyhat, now what do you do?
This quirky new craft book will provide you with all the creative inspiration you need to carry on making a powerful feminist statement in a subversively homespun way. Missy Covington shows how simple and satisfying it is to use easy-sew, craft-store felt as the medium for your message. You'll discover how to make a wide variety of projects that are as edgy as they are whimsical, including a gallery of feminist icons in badge form, entertaining busy book pages to smash the patriarchy as you play, and stylised depictions of the female reproductive system as Christmas tree decorations.
The glueing, stitching and embroidery techniques Missy employs are easy to master, and whatever the project, there is all the step-by-step practical guidance you need to ensure impressive results.
'Bring your favourite feminist icons to life with this adorable collection of felt designs. From a Marie Curie finger puppet, Ada Lovelace egg cosy and Rosie the Riveter coin purse to a floral "Firebrand" bracelet in suffragette colours and #metoo keyring, we love the combination of cute-and-cosy with inspirational symbols. There's even a coffee cup cosy based on the now-iconic pussy hat! It's a fun way to combine crafting with a powerful statement, with templates and instructions included.' -- Inside Crochet, Issue 105
