Criminal Crafts- From D.I.Y. to F.B.I. Outlaw Projects for Scoundrels, Cheats, and Armchair Detectives

Published by Andrews McMeel, this noir  DIY how to guide is perfect for amateur spies, pulp fiction vixens and anyone who's looking to craft a little devious fun into their home decor, wardrobe accessories and mystery themed parties.  The 30 easy-to-make projects from John Dillinger's soap gun to Bonnie Parker's gunshot poetry journal have created quite the buzz from The Today Show to Boing Boing and popular craft blogs like Crafty Pod and Craftfoxes.

Aside from being a creative romp through counter culture hobbies, Criminal Crafts and companion website for the book are unique satire pieces being written in a narrative structure, penned by a larcenous trollop, Miss Demeanor.  Like other unintentional aliases, Miss Demeanor has taken on a life of her own, participating in "iron craft" competitions , maker events and charity fundraisers.

Completed projects from the book as well as other noir themed gifts can be found in the Criminal Crafts shop on ETSY, and Miss Demeanor rants daily on Facebook and occasionally onTwitter.
