Knitting, beading and stitching projects to make - or not. Whatever.

If you would describe your favorite crafts as "supercute" - no, let us rephrase: If the idea of handcrafting the most nauseatingly adorable plush bunny you've ever seen sets your heart atwitter - feel free to stop reading. We'll understand. Really.

If you're still reading, you may be cynical and fed up with syrupy crafts as we are. (Huzzah!) For you and your likeminded AntiCraftspeople, we have hand-selected twenty-five projects from the most talented crafters you'll never find in the mainstream (whatever that even means). Behold:

Creations your goody-goody little sister will roll her eyes at, including snake-motif thigh-highs and a duct-tape corset. Tips and sidebars to celebrate (with as much enthusiasm as any of us can muster) your delightfully dark nature, including suggested mood-enhancers (soundtracks, movies, etc.) for making each and every item. Basic techniques for knitting, crochet and jewelry-making virgins - complete with step-by-step photos to save you from the embarrassment of asking that annoyingly perky coworker for help.

Join us in the AntiCraft movement - where self-expression, no matter how socially unacceptable, is given a scalpel and room to operate.

Craft book (mostly fiber arts) for Goths. It even has a baby sweater and two pages on parenting!

Lots of good DIY projects for the demented craftster in your life. Some are really practical, some are downright gorgeous, many are appealingly punk or devastatingly goth and at least a couple are so complicated I'm not sure they could be completed exactly as per the instructions. But then, you wouldn't want a carbon copy project, would you? Kind of defeats the purpose of DIY.
