I love my crafts to be unexpected! When a standard object of necessity is created from the unexpected or with an unusual theme I am beyond tickled. This is what you get in every glorious page of Criminal Crafts: From D.I.Y. to F.B.I. Outlaw Projects for Scoundrels, Cheats, and Armchair Detectives by Shawn Bowman. All sorts of projects like wrist pin cushions in the shape of voodoo dolls and gingerbread men cookies with death themed sweet toppings. Every project is as snarky as it is well designed. If you too like your crafts with an edge you will love making the ones in Criminal Crafts: From D.I.Y. to F.B.I. Outlaw Projects for Scoundrels, Cheats, and Armchair Detectives with their wonderful tutorials, directions and patterns. I have already started making stuff from the book. My first project was what the book called a shiv cozy, I called my version a scissor holster garter. See how I made mine over at Sweater Surgery Read, Craft, Repeat!
