DESIGN YOUR OWN TEES
published by st. martin's press

my do-it-yourself book for turning your classic tees into colorful, bold, graphic, personal statements.

combine basic sewing, stamping, and printing techniques to create stylish, wearable projects. use thread, ribbon, and fabric to play with texture through decorative machine stitching, hand embroidery, and applique. experiment with found objects and stamps to create pattern through potato and block printing and stenciling. choose your favorite doodles and images to enhance with color through screen printing.

color photographs of the finished products plus step-by-step instructions with easy-to-follow diagrams will soon have you wearing your art on your sleeve.
