There’s a lot of great stuff going around lately on reconstructing t-shirts (see: Tease, Generation T, oh my stars, t-shirt surgery forum, etc), but I’ve also been noticing a bunch of cool ideas for decorating existing t-shirt with minimal to no sewing required.

First there’s the freezer paper craze that has spread like wildfire since Amy introduced the idea (image above is from hannah at huffmania). Check out these versions at the small object, two rabbits, soulemama,. Also, there’s a new flickr group started to share freezer paper stencil designs with lots of great ideas.

Or try some fancy embroidery to spruce up t-shirts or hoodies, like this craftster member, using sublime stitching patterns and instructions. Keep in mind that she recommends using tearaway stabilizer when stitching on t-shirts!
