Synopsis

From the creators of the hugely popular craft site, Supernaturale.com, comes a hip and funky compendium of new DIY projects that reshape, reuse, and redefine the concept of "handmade," moving away from country-cutesy, granny craft into utilitarian craft art for the 21st century. Got a pile of extra buttons and don't know what to do with them? Make a cool bracelet. Need some pillows for your new couch, and have a bunch of old wool sweaters? Turn those sweaters into felt and make pillows so beautiful you could sell them at Urban Outfitters! Knitting, felting, leather tooling, glass and metal work - it's all here. "Craftivity" is filled with amazing DIY projects that make the most of what you have by taking old stuff and turning it into functional, breathtaking art. The book introduces craft techniques with a brief history and background information, and then teaches specific projects based on that technique. The projects are divided up by material: Fabric and Thread, Paper and Pencil, Yarn and String, Glass and Metal, Wood and Leather, Wax and Soap, and Lost and Found Objects. It has great gift ideas and what to look for in charity shops.
