I am so excited to show off this book to you!!
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Lark Books to see if I wanted to review this fun new book – 101 Tees – by Cathe Filian.
Um. Yeah!!! :)
So- I have loved going through the book. There are tons of adorable T-shirt projects in it!! (145 to be exact).
You can find ideas for painting, dyeing, stenciling, cutting, stitching, and embroidery – and there are projects at all skill levels too!
How cute is this one? With the scissors and measuring twill tape? There are instructions for every idea – along with helpful Q & A tips throughout!
I also really like that she’s included several projects for guys. It’s so hard to come up with fun things to make for men/boys – and this book has several great ideas!
I’m thinking Christmas already!
There also lots of cute ideas for adding ribbons, trims and appliques. I really liked the design of this T-shirt and decided to do something similar.
I combined that idea with another project in the book – there are some great tips on dyeing T’s! I love the Ombre effect on this one.
(I learned something from the tip on this page - Ombre is a French word meaning shadow or shade. I feel smarter now.)
So here’s what I came up with for me!
This T-shirt was originally white – I dyed it a gradual Yellow Ombre -so it’s more of a cream color up top and a pretty yellow down towards the hem.
I added lace to the neck similar to the ribbon on the T-shirt in the book – then added some cute gray polka dot rosettes to finish it off.
Pretty cute huh?
There are so many more ideas in the book. If you love refashions I think you’d really like it. :)
But it’s not all about me here – Lark Books sent me something for you too!
