Generation T: Beyond Fashionby Megan Nicolay
Megan Nicolay ups the ante with this follow-up to her first guide to transforming the T-shirt. This time, the scope has moved beyond apparel to include baby gifts, home décor, and other fun stuff like wine cozies, toilet-seat covers, and grocery totes! Perfect projects for every DIYer, regardless of skill level.
Synopses & Reviews
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:
But also baby gifts: Home decor: Time to get your craft on.
Time to get your craft on.
"While the styles are counterculture, they are overall a creative and great way to experiment when recycling old t-shirts." Children's Literature
"Interspersed throughout the book are tidbits of T-shirt trivia and anecdotes about celebrities and their tees. An excellent choice." Library Journal

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.
