The T-shirt-preferably well-used - is a blank canvas. You can cut it, sew it, twist it, and turn it. You can deconstruct it, you can reconstruct it. Recycle it, resuscitate it, refashion it, and re-invent it. Make it punky, make it funky. It is the perfect jumping-off point, and Megan Nicolay - who knows the my-pride of accomplishment and the pleasure of making something chic and unique (and cheap) shows how to turn an ordinary T-shirt into a halter, a tank top, a peasant blouse, or, for a total transformation, into a T-skirt. Or a hat. Or a Christmas stocking, a drawstring purse, a wine bottle cosy. Even a quilt.In 121 unexpected, easy-to-follow projects, this pied piper of DIY shows first how to tee-off with the basic materials plus add-ons and techniques. More than half the projects require no sewing, and all are rated according to the level of difficulty.
