Format: Paperback
Design Your Own Tees by Jennifer Cooke is a how-to book that gives "techniques and inspiration to stitch, stamp, stencil, and silk-screen your very own t-shirts." If you want ideas on how to transform plain tees into something fabulous, this is the book for you!

Design Your Own Tees isn't exactly what I originally thought it would be. I thought that it would have more t-shirt reconstruction ideas in it. There really aren't any of those included, but if you have a plain and boring t-shirt that is already fitted how you like, you can use the ideas included to really make it into something unique that you will love.

What I really enjoyed about this book is that it is simple and something that everyone with a small ounce of creativity can do on their own. You don't need big expensive machines to do any of it and nothing included is too intimidating to try.

This is a fun book that really inspires those who read it to want to create something fun and a little edgy to wear. If you are tired of wearing the same thing as everyone else and you really want to wear unique clothing, this book is the answer to get you on the right path to creating your own works of art to wear! I highly recommend it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Design Your Own Tees, St. Martin's Griffin, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

This excellent book is both instructional and inspiring. The author teaches crafting techniques in a very clear, straightforward way that makes you feel quite confident in your abilities, and produces great results. Her take on design is modern, fun and funky. The pictures inside are bold and bright and detailed so you're never confused about what to do next or how a project should turn out. You will love this book. Highly recommended.
