Generation T: Beyond Fashion : 120 New Ways to Transform a T-shirt
Megan Nicolay revolutionized the T-shirt. She repurposed it, reinterpreted it, reinvented it-and created the #1 craft book in the nation, Generation T, which continues to dominate. Now she explores new ways to slash a tee, scrunch a tee, and sew a tee with Generation T: Beyond Fashion. A collection of 120 projects for every occasion, it takes the humble yet ever-malleable tee in dozens of new directions-from baby gifts to pet accessories, stuff for the home, the car, the road, the boyfriend.
The rallying cry is: Don't buy; DIY. The result is hip, imaginative, crafty, and very green. There's a basic primer on techniques-knotting, sewing, braiding, lacing-plus a full tutorial on embellishing. And then an amazing range of projects. There's fashion, of course: all-new halters and tank tops, sexy gaucho pants, a baby-doll dress, twisted shrug, and hooded scarf. But also baby gifts: Jumper for Joy, Baby Back Bib, Wild Thing Blankie. Home décor: plant hanger, wine cozy, toilet seat cover, ruffled apron, and Spastic Plastic (grocery tote). Grill mitts and bolo ties for the guys, doggie tee and stuffed cat toys, a steering wheel cover for the car, the Ants Go Marching (picnic blanket), and Beach Bum (beach caddy). Projects range from the simplest no-sew to intermediate, and all have easy-to-follow illustrated directions-plus, how to throw your own Tee Party.
Time to get your craft on.
