Our Review

Most crafters have made things that they aren't proud to show off, or later wondered what they were thinking when they started, but most of us sentence these terrible creations to the bottom of a garbage can, rather than listing them online for others to buy.

Regretsy by April Winvhell explores "where DIY meets WTF" and the many items of questionable taste that have been listed for sale online. The book showcases such handmade pieces as an Ice Cream Headache Headband for $20, an Obama Toilet Seat at $23, stencilled Serial Killer pillows for $15 each and a steal at just $105, knitted Bertha the Pregnant, Birthing, Nursing, Sock Monkey.

Featuring a collection of art pieces, wearables, homeware and gifts, this is a hilarious book for crafters and DIY lovers everywhere.

Publisher's Description

A chicken poncho. A painting of a corn dog. A clock made out of an old “mostly clean” cheese grater. All this and more await you in the pages of Regretsy, a veritable sideshow of handcrafts gone wrong. Based on the eponymous hit blog and arranged in categories such as Décor, Pet Humiliation, and Christmas, Regretsy showcases the best of the worst, ranging from the hilariously absurd to the purely horrifying. Each page of this jaw-dropping volume features the actual seller’s online listing with a light coat of snarky commentary to give it a good shellacking. So join us as we descend into handmade hell and gawk, gasp, and marvel at the disturbingly odd artifacts that Regretsy has collected for your viewing pleasure, proving that you can never have too much of a bad thing.
