The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and there is a good variety of projects.

The fashion ideas are much cuter than the ones in the author's previous book Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt.
Beth Cline
I think this would be great for teens/young adults who want to get some experience with crafts and sewing.

I purchased the first book Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt a while back to use with my students, and we did quite a few projects out of it and my students really enjoyed it. On a whim, I purchased the second book for myself and spent 12 hours the next day tearing up t-shirts and turning them into new, fun, useful things. This book still has many ways to alter t-shirts into other wearables or "better" tops (some of which were in the first book) including a chapter specifically for the guys, but it also goes beyond wearables to things you can make and use around the house, in the car, for your kids, for your pets, and some great accessories. I have planned out half of my christmas list from ideas provided in this book, especially because its cheap, easy, and a lot of fun for me to make. If you're torn between the first and the second, I'd suggest Gen T 2.

As a serious DIY clothing repurposer, I ordered yet another book, hoping to get a few projects from it. I was blown away by all the useful things one can do with a T-shirt. Not only are the projects presented in a way everyone can understand, but she gives you tips on how to hand-sew, make knots, weave, braid, etc. Everything from fashion to home furnishings and crafts are featured. The variations on each project make this book great for both the beginner as well as the experienced DIY enthusiast.

Her first book was great, I have to say that this one is even better! for beginner's thru talented crafter's there is something for all in this book,fun hip girl stuff and if your guy has out grown his favorite vintage/ band/sports team shirt there are ways to transform it for him into a brand new cool shirt,save money on kids clothes by transforming their favorite too small to wear pieces into the cutest dresses or romper outfits and soft toys, pet toys and outfits made from your t-shirts! household linens, bags,scarves, the list goes on and on.... the book is worth more than the $11.00 it costs, you will save a bundle redesigning your t's into hip outfit's. Here's the best part, the diagrams and instructions are so easy to follow and you do not even need a sewing machine for the projects.This book has color photo's too, Get this book for yourself or a holiday gift for any-one that sews,knits or crafts.

More great t-shirt recon ideas, with an even better variety than Megan's first book. Great, easy-to-follow instructions. You absolutely do not need to be an expert seamstress to make these projects. Be aware, though, that this isn't high fashion; it is a ton of fun, however.

Very cool book. I have the first one too. Good instructions, minimal sewing experience is necessary for some projects. Makes me wish I had thousands of shirts to "remodel" because the projects are very fashionable.

I thought there would be more modern ways to alter t-shirts. These may be okay for college kids on a budget, but I don't know too many who would wear these. The ones I do like with the split backs, etc are okay and my granddaughter likes them, but I doubt she'll be asking for any of the other things.

The designs are great... but I really thought there would be more for actual girls wardrobe. Its really more practical uses like... oven mitts... not the best, but great for the price I got.

This book is full of cute and fun ideas to refashion t-shirts. The fashion ideas are much cuter than the ones in the author's previous book Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt. This book also provides projects for baby gifts, which are especially well done. Also included are home decor items and pet projects. I am very glad I purchased this book! It has provided lots of sewing inspiration.
