As I said in another post a few seconds ago, I'm hanging out at amazon.com tonight.  Roll Eyes  I found two books that are supposed to be released in 2006 that might be of interest to some crafty gals and guys out there (and me!)

Generation T: 121 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt
by: Megan Nicolay  (May 2, 2006)

Another title said that it was going to be 108 ways to transform a t-shirt.. so I don't know which one for sure. I'm sure all you crafters already know more than 100 ways to transform a tee, but I thought it'd be interesting. I'm gonna check it out anyway.

Rip It! : How to Deconstruct and Reconstruct the Clothes of Your Dreams
by Elissa Meyrich (Paperback - January 3, 2006)

Oohh.. and January's not that far away!!

Anyway... head to your bookstore or amazon.com (which is a saving grace for me because I live in the middle of freakin' no where.)

So how is Generation T?  I just happened across it the other day while looking at the publisher's site.  It looks fun!  Are the patterns any good?

The reviews on amazon weren't very good for Rip-It... so I'm curious, also, about Generation T.

i actually got both of these, and i'm returning "rip it".  i don't know, first of all, the projects aren't very appealing...not very "finished".  for example, on the amazon page, they talk about turning a pullover sweater into a cardigan, which sounds like a hot idea...the actual project is essentially slicing down the center of a sweatshirt.  also, there are very few pictures of the actual clothing, it's mostly illustrations, which makes it difficult to figure out what the end product is supposed to look like exactly.  overall i found it very "eh", not something i need to spend my money on.
"108 ways" i like a lotttt though.  tons of projects, and it's  not one of those deal were there are 108 projects and you want to do 10 of them...they're all really cute and wearable.  there are great pictures, easy instructions, and cute little fun facts about t-shirts.  also in the beginning there is kind of a how-to section for people who've never threaded a needle before, which, to be fair, is also in "rip it".  but just the overall quality of generation t is a lot better, the projects are cute but not too hard on unwearable and the instructions are right on.  so to each his own, but i would pass on "rip it" and think about getting yourself "generation t".
