Simple Times: Crafts for Poor Peopleby Amy Sedaris
Very few people could pull off a book like this, but, rest assured, Amy Sedaris has. Featuring craft projects for crab-claw roach clips, countless pompon-related items, and everything in between, this hilarious book is a perfect gift for the DIYer with a fully developed sense of humor.
Synopses & Reviews
America's most delightfully unconventional hostess and the bestselling author of I Like You delivers a new book that will forever change the world of crafting. According to Amy Sedaris, it's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In her new book, Simple Times, she sets the record straight. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters.
You will discover how to make popular crafts, such as: crab-claw roach clips, tinfoil balls, and crepe-paper moccasins, and learn how to:
- get inspired (Spend time at a Renaissance Fair; Buy fruit, let it get old, and see what shapes it turns into)
Plus... whole chapters full of more crafting ideas (Pompom Ringworms, Seashell Toilet Seat Covers) that will inspire you to create your own hastily constructed obscure d'arts; and much, much more
"The true joy of this book lies in its hilarious and amazingly well-styled photo spreads, many featuring Sedaris in one of her uncanny disguises...The appeal of this book will certainly transcend the world of crafters." Booklist
Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris reveals how anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters.
