A Find: T-Shirt Transformations
April 18, 2006
Behold, the creative power of the t-shirt. I bet you never thought you could do much with that growing pile of old tees in the nether regions of your lower drawer. Think again. TEASE: 50 Inspired T-Shirt Transformations by Superstars of Art, Craft & Design is a witty, entertaining read on how to deconstruct and reconstruct t-shirts into everything from skirts, to seat covers, to ipod cases, to an â€œEye Burrito.â€ An Eye Burrito, you say? Thatâ€™s right, everybody from kooky comedienne Amy Sedaris (the burritoâ€™s creator) to Stich nâ€™Bitch author Debbie Stoller, to Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field has wacky ideas thatâ€™ll make you think twice before you dismiss the t-shirt as merely wardrobe basic. Compiled by Sarah Sockit, the book is chock full of cute anecdotes and inspiring designs. A creative find from Penguin Books available at Amazon.com for $10.37.
