Is there anyone here who can suggest to me how a plain t-shirt can be customised into something utterly gasp-worthy cool and never-seen-before-on-earth?

My collection of t-shirts is so plain that I literally look like a non-person in them. I am not exaggerating. I need help. So here are some details:

1. All of my t-shirts have pretty standard necklines – square-ish scoops, not-too-low v, high scoops. The square-ish scoop neck is the trickiest for me, because I can’t imagine what to do with it.

2. I am not interested in girly things like sequins and beads – I’m talking crazy scissor lady customisations here.

3. My ambition is bigger than my skill, so feel free to suggest things that I don’t really know how to do.

THANKS to any and all with some help for me!!!

    Take a look at “Generation T 108 ways to transform a T-Shirt” by Megan Nicolay. She has some fantastic ideas as to what to do with a t-shirt. Can’t tell you how many times I refer to this book for inspiration.

    just image googe t-shirt surgery or t-shirt refashion. You are likely to find something that you like by a photo rather than just going to a tutorial website.

    Except I like this website with videos.

    Either putting elastic to pull up the sides or front is different. Slashing and then using a crochet hook to latch it up then tack.

    Check out a reverse applique! It’s pretty fun, easy, and definitely unique! I first learned about it/tried it on a baby dress for a friend’s baby after seeing it on the totally awesome blog “I am Momma Hear Me Roar”. She’s got some other fun ideas too! Enjoy!
