Deep Purple Tee

Okay, so I've had this Deep Purple tee shirt since I bought it during their 2004 tour. It's a 2X and simply huge. I was a lot heavier when I bought it, but not that big. I bought it big on purpose because at that time, I was more into hiding how big I really was. Anyway, to make a long story longer, I've had the shirt all this time, but haven't worn it. 

I also have this book called Generation T. If you haven't seen it, check it out. There are a bunch of cute ways to transform old tee shirts in it. I've done a few things, but only on really ratty tee shirts that I didn't care if I messed up on. This Deep Purple shirt is NOT one of those. I think I paid $40 for the darn thing. Anyway, I want to transform it into something that I'd actually wear, but I don't know what. After spending so much money, the thought of cutting it scares me.

This is the back of the shirt with all the cities they toured in 2004. It's a really cool shirt and I'd like to make it into something a little more fashionable. Have you ever transformed a favorite tee shirt into something else? If so, how did it turn out? I'm scared to mess it up. Maybe I should just sell it on eBay and buy myself a cute, red plaid dress instead.


  1. I SHOULD do this. I never have, though.

  2. Keep the t-shirt. Maybe you can put it in a shadow box and display it somewhere.

  3. I have transformed tees into tanks and other things. You could make a bookbag out of it super easily. And that would be cool.

    If you're interested let me know and I'll send you a link with instructions. :D
