Generation T
Make it yours. This inspirational guide with DIY attitude has everything you need to know about the world's great T-shirt: how to cut it, sew it, deconstruct it, reconstruct it, and best of all, transform it. - Features more than 100 projects (plus 200 variations) for customized tees, tank tops, tube tops, T-skirts-even handbags, a patchwork blanket, iPod cozies, leg warmers, and more. - Not a DIY expert? Not to worry. More than one third of the projects are no sew, meaning anyone who can wield a pair of scissors can put a personal stamp on her wardrobe. But the sewing basics are here too: backstitch and whipstitch, gather and ruche, appliqué and drawstrings. - And the mission statement for Generation T : Ask not what your T-shirt can do for you; ask what you can do for your T-shirt. And then Do-It-Yourself!

"Author Megan Nicolay (Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt) shows readers how to cut up tees and create not only whole new wardrobes from them (including tank tops, halter tops, dresses, gaucho pants, gloves, and a couple of skirts), but also household items like pot holders, plant hangers, and place mats; baby things such as a hooded towel, a mobile, and stuffed animals; pet paraphernalia like a pillow bed, cat toys, and a leash; altered tees just for guys; and even car accessories such as her "steering wheel cozy." Who knew that a trip to the t-shirt bin at the thrift store could yield the raw material for so much? Jealous non-sewers take note: several of the projects require no sewing!"

Kind of cool. Got boring after a few ideas. Many off the transformations were un-original and un-appealing. Could have easily been edited down to, "A Dozen Ways to Transform A T-shirt."

This is a great how-to book. The instructions are easy to read and the ideas are fabulous! I really liked how most of the transformations have "no sew" options. Used this with a group of 8-12 year olds and they were able to do it on their own with minimal supervision.
