“In this sassy craft book, pop-culture expert, crafter, writer, and feminist Burton offers more than two dozen DIY projects inspired by real and fictional feminists…. Perfection á la Martha Stewart is not the goal here. Approaching loaded issues with a light heart and sense of humor is the aim.”—Booklist
“I don't have time to tell you how much I love this book because I'm too busy crafting all my tampons into my imaginary friends. Also, I'm now out of tampons. Things are gonna get real weird if I forget to buy more.” —Jenny Lawson, author of Furiously Happy
“Crafting with Feminism reads much like Bonnie herself: fun, fierce, and forward. Reading it leaves you ready to DIY the inner bad-ass into your life.”—Hannah Hart, host of “My Drunk Kitchen”
