Generation T is much better.

I have the 99 ways to cut and do that other stuff to tee shirts book.  Basically, its got some good ideas in it, but Generation T is SOOO much better.  It has better pictures, better directions.

I use it bascially to remember that bias cuts are a possibility because I never remember that when I recon tee shirts.  I kinda wish I hadnt bought it honestly, but I do pride myself on the collection of alternative craft books I own.

All in all I would say dont get it.  Even the Rip It book isnt all that well.

I have Generation T and recommend that one as well.  I looked at the 99 Ways book in the store and wasn't nearly as impressed.

I have never seen "99 ways...." in stores but I did see Tease. It has 50 ways to re-vamp shirts. But I really want to get a chance to look at Generation T before I buy either one. I mean I could probably get just as good ideas on craftster, but I love having books to just sit and dream of what I can make.

Its really a toss up between Generation T and Tease.  Like, if I didnt have both, and I could only buy one, I wouldnt be able to easily choose.

Hmmm.

I love recon books.  Are there any others out there like Generation T and Tease?
