Transforming T-shirts with Megan Nicolay

Got a lot of T-shirts you don't know what to do with? Then check out the just-released Generation T: Beyond Fashion: 120 New Ways to Transform a T-Shirt by Brooklyn artist, author, and friend of Greenjeans Megan Nicolay.

From refashioned clothing to projects for your home, the book celebrates "budget conscious living, self-made fashion, and rock 'n' roll recycling -- right here in Brooklyn, New York."

Megan will be at the Barnes & Noble bookstore on 7th Ave. in Park Slope, Brooklyn, THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT June 17. to read from the new book, demo some projects, and give away prizes.

I love that if you bring your own T-shirt there will be supplies to refashion it on the spot, scissors provided!

Megan is smart and nice and awesome and we love what she does. Hope you can check out her book and meet her! Her full book tour schedule is below, and much more info is on the website www.generation-T.com.
