Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 decor:

  • 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.

Review:

"While the styles are counterculture, they are overall a creative and great way to experiment when recycling old t-shirts." Children's Literature

Review:

"Interspersed throughout the book are tidbits of T-shirt trivia and anecdotes about celebrities and their tees. An excellent choice." Library Journal

Synopsis:

About the Author

Megan Nicolay first transformed a T-shirt — with batik — at the age of nine, and has been at it ever since. Today she lives with her sewing machine in Brooklyn, New York, where she hosts Tee Parties and fills orders for special-request T-shirts. Her Web site, www.Generation-T.com, will feature a new design each month.
