You won't find die-cut teddy bears, cross-stitched friendship plaques, or ducks painted with bonnets in this hipster collection of crafts from founder, Leah Kramer.  You will find forty easy-to-make, fun-to-wear, and stylish-to-display projects pulled straight from the pages of vintage craft books– plus ten all-new retro-inspired crafts— including:

  • Cigar-Box Purse
  • Coffee Urn Lamp
  • Doll Face Fridgies
  • Glovely Lovely Coin Purse

and many more!

An unabashedly tacky craft compendium for lovers of gold-painted macaroni, toilet paper cozies, and everything terry cloth, The Craftster Guide features full-color and vintage photographs, descriptions of tools and techniques– and enough irony to fill a popsicle-stick purse.
