Description

Youve 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. Youll 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.

Reviews

@naomialicec


I recently had the opportunity to review a new @searchpress book called 'Feminist Felties'. I utterly adore the premise of this book which is built upon the notion of feeling solidarity with others through making with your hands which is both calming and energizing. As Missy Covington, the book's fantastic author, says: "There was power in needle and thread". There is a wide range of projects and designs in the book ranging from the more traditional, suffragette symbols (such as the Fireband bracelet with symbols and colours inspired by the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies)  to some which are more tongue-in-cheek (such as the Uterus Christmas Tree Decoration)! After the introduction, Missy talks about the range of felts available, which tools are best for the projects, starting and finishing techniques and stitches to use. Then Missy presents 21 projects with each project accompanied by clear instructions, skill levels, required tools, stitches used and the patterns needed to create your own feminist felties! I can also see this book being fantastic for working with children and young people of all ages, sexes and genders by talking about the history of the feminist movement and the journey it has taken through creating with your hands!
