Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Its a nice book - lots of colorful pics and good instructions and cute styles BUT I was looking for something more along the lines of slash and sew and re-fashion your t-shirt. Instead, this book has stuff like: how to tie-dye, how to bedazzle, how to sew on appliques and ribbon. I mean, really? Like I said, it has some cute styles and ideas, and I'll probably do a couple of them - but sewing on an applique or buttons or stenciling your shirt aren't exactly genius. Plus - trim is expensive. Also, a lot of the ideas are sometimes not do-able unless you have a specific shirt. One of the cutest tanks starts with: Take a tank with crocheted trim....
So if you don't have a tank top with crocheted trim around the neckline lying around your closet, you can't make that one. And I don't. And I wouldn't know where to find one. Maybe if I Google it...
Anyway...it's OK. I like the tie-dye section - and the add-a-ribbon section had some good ideas for designs. But it is NOT a cut up a shirt and sew it back together in a cool way book - if thats what you want.

There is a myriad of possibilities in 101 Tees for every style and also answers to just about any question you could have about t-shirts in little Q & A boxes throughout. I loved how each of the 101 Tees has been given a name, which adds to the fun of looking at all of the creative styles. Plus, many of them have a variation (also named!), which actually brings the total number of tee ideas well over 101!

101 Tees gives you all the details to use sequins and beads to make sparkly butterflies and peacocks for your tees or iron on patches, ribbons and trims to embellish them. The boys in your life aren't forgotten with a chapter of suggestions just for them, like rock, robots, sports and other manly pursuits. Dyeing or painting on your shirts really gives them a brand new life, and 101 Tees has complete directions for both of those methods. Adding extras like appliques, doilies or embroidery changes a plain tee into something special. 101 Tees was a big hit with my daughters who each went through the book, excitedly choosing all their favorite designs!

Format: Paperback
101 Tees ; Recycle + Refashion + Revamp by Cathie Filian is a collection of ways to personalize and style tee shirts into fashion statements that reflect who you are.

Unlike other teeshirt revamping books, this one isn't about how to deconstruct or slice up a shirt. The emphasis is instead on ways to decorate and embellish a tee shirt. The results are colorful, unique and fun. Just as importantly, the results are modest and wearable by young ladies.

The techniques include applique, embroidery, printing, painting, stenciling, using iron ons and beads. While there are no illustrations, they are well explained. There are patterns and stencils in the back.

The examples are trendy looking with a DIY vibe. One of my favorites is the hand stamped Giggles shirt. The same technique could be used to set up a shirt with a favorite quote. Other favorites are the two toned dyed shirts. One of the most energizing and lovely ideas through out the book is untypical design placements and elements. Instead of centering motifs and embellishments, they are placed at angles on shoulders, off to the side, or in other places. It's a great design element that's very appealing.

Scattered flowers go up the side of one shirt. Ruffles are used to create both fashion looks in sharp pleats and very girly looks in soft form. The bleach discharged robot shirt is one my son wants to make, but instead of the negative stencil robot, he plans to use gears and bolts. A butterfly design combines painted and appliqued shapes in different sizes. Some shirts show as an example how you can take a shirt already printed with a pattern or design and embellish it in different ways. Screen printing on top of a patterned tee shirt for example, or embroidering details on a shirt with a motif.

I love this book! I'm not very good at sewing and I loved seeing a t-shirt book with some great alternatives to sewing! The projects are fun, easy, and very creative! I'm ready to spice up my t-shirt drawer today! :)

I am dying to try all of these projects, I just have to learn how to sew! I specifically bought this book to try and motivate myself, but all of these designs are great! I especially like the screen printing and painting ideas. I actually got this book at Fuego in the mall for less than 4 bucks, so if you have one in your area, I would suggest you check them first! They also have another DIY book for about the same price, and I snapped that one up too! All in all, am really excited to get my craft on!

I have loved looking at this book getting ideas. Most of the shirts are well described on how to fix/change/alter/make the shirts. There are a few that are not well described. Overall some great ideas to use on boring/plain shirts.

What fun and unusual ways to change your tees, or new ones. You would never have to wear the same Tee twice, and these designs will lead you to develop some other ways on your own.

While it did have 101 suggestions for t-shirts, it wasn't what I expected. I wanted unusual ideas, but it was more standard ideas.
