Crafting with Feminism: 25 Girl-Powered Projects to Smash the Patriarchy

For: The DIY feminist

Price: $11.24

Crafting has always been a woman’s game. Ever since the days when we were expected to sit inside and tend to the mending all day, women have been making things out of nothing. Now of course, we have more opportunities – though there will always be those who wish we would just knit and shut up. But crafting still has a place in the hearts of many women. Possibly because it’s just fun. Possibly because when you’ve been told you’re not worth much, it’s amazing to see what your own two hands can make.

This is where Crafting With Feminism comes in! Author Bonnie Burton has collated 25 empowering, feminist craft ideas into a single book. Burton’s fun and fierce feminist voice has already been praised by many. And several Amazon reviewers note that the crafts are simplistic enough that the book would be suitable for younger girls. With possibilities such as the “Huggable Uterus Body Pillow” and homemade feminist merit badges, women of all ages can jump on the train to the feminist future.

We’ve come a long way since the days when the greatest height we could achieve was straight stitches. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t stop stitching! Your friend who loves all things DIY will love these playful and fun crafts. And even if you don’t know the difference between knitting and crocheting, you can rest assured that the projects will be simple enough for you to follow when she insists you join her for a crafternoon of making feminist heroine finger puppets!

She’ll Love It If: Her gifts to you always begin with a hot glue gun and a spark of inspiration; her Pinterest board is chock-full of DIY projects; she’s looking for a new project, because there are only so many “Smash The Patriarchy” needlework pillows a girl can make.
