Overview

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.

    Fantastic ideas for all!

    This book is a wonderful source of ideas for recycling t-shirts. Not only is there something for everyone, with themes ranging from people clothes to pet clothes to household accessories, but the skill level required is also for everyone. Not everything requires sewing, and the things which do are easily sewn by hand -- no machine required. My teenaged daughters spend a rainy afternoon holed up with this book, a stack of old t-shirts, and my sewing kit, and I never heard a peep from them. PRICELESS! They are already talking about what they will make for their friends for Christmas.

    Excellent resource for all ages and skill levels!!

    I bought this book before her first in paperback and promptly got stuck needing a bazillion T's because I wanted do try almost EVERY SINGLE THING FIRST!!! No kidding, from the small flowers to make into hair clips with scraps to incredible halter top dresses and gaucho pants to die for. Every peice of clothing so comfy, easy to make,Super ez, and you can upcycle your own items along with new finds from the craft store or thrift shops....or your friends and neighbors closets and attic spaces.
    Beware,if you hear oooo's and aaah's coming from your attic, don't shoot first, it may be a Generation T upcycling your cast-offs for the greater good, wink wink.

    JUST AS GOOD AS THE FIRST

    I own Megan Nicolay's first T-shirt recon book. There's always a concern that when a follow up book comes out it won't be as good as the first, but that is not the case here! As always, clear and concise instructions, fun projects, great inspiration. If you like T-shirt recons this is your bible. Get 'em both and enjoy!

    Great ideas for the "T" generation!

    I mentor sewing students at a local high school and don't have lots of time to spend with them each week. This book contains simple but marvelous projects that are fun and easy, can't wait to get started in the coming semester with some of the ideas!
