Run out of junk to sell on eBay? Maybe it's time to start making your own. Faythe Levine's 2006 film Handmade Nation
documents hipsters who do just that. Among the craftastic profiled: paper-cut artist Nikki McClure, X-rated latch hooker Whitney Lee, feminist art collective the Dirt Palace, and yarn graffitists Knitta. Rumor has it you can even turn your creative compulsions into cold, hard cash via marketplace sites like Etsy.com. So what are you waiting for? That macramé isn't going to knot itself!
