I very much like to turn things into other things. Especially my clothing. This book offers not only ideas for creating new/different clothing out of t-shirts, but other items useful around the house or wherever.
There are several photos of the finished product as well as step-by-step instructions. Don't worry about having no experience in sewing. This book will even introduce readers to the basic stitch and offers plenty of no-sew instructions.
Like to try something new, this book also gives ideas for variations. Definitely a must have on the bookshelf, in the sewing room, or even your t-shirt drawer.

What a great book! This book covers lots of different projects for jazzing up t-shirts and using the material for simple, fun projects. Most of the projects are simple and give immediate gratification. The instructions are easy to follow and the layout is bright and inviting. There are a wide variety of projects to choose from at different levels of difficulty, although I would categorize all the projects as beginner-level.
What I like best about this book is it gives a leg-up to inexperienced sewists who might otherwise be too intimidated to dive in. A great gift for the teenage sewist.

T-shirts are cool, comfortable to wear and easy to maintain, this is a plus for economical tees. This book by Megan Nicolay, "Generation T 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt," is filled with fresh ideas and diagrams of ways to transform a tired old Tee-shirt into a striking fashion statement with minimal effort. There are even pages included for sketching your own creative ideas. I give this book 4 stars for its fresh ideas and its coggling, recyling efforts.
Publishers Weekly, 2006-01-02 The scope of Nicolay's how-to book is broader than its title suggests. It's a breezy, trendy call of encouragement to a young crop of do-it-yourselfers, with enough ideas to inspire experienced crafty types, too. The T-shirt is the starting point; the 108 end results-many of which have an edgy, even punk-like feel (much like the projects in Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'n Bitch)-range from slightly modified tops requiring no sewing to much more intricate fashion products like the sexy "sidewinder" skirt and the two-piece "teeny bikini," with variations suggested for many projects. Offering celebrity tidbits ("In the 1950s and early '60s, James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Elvis Presley delivered a triple dose of T-shirt sex appeal onscreen and onstage, turning the garment into an icon of rebellion") and "tee trivia," a condensed history uncovers one of the world's favorite pieces of clothing. The book starts with an introduction to design terms, tools, measurement, materials and stitches, making it accessible to beginners. And because the author-who got into transforming Ts by gathering friends and hosting "Brooklyn Tee Parties" to resuscitate old T-shirts-is budget-conscious (and so are all the projects in the book), anyone can afford to experiment with this kind of fashion design.
