Happy Monday to our amazing readers!
For a while now, I've been wanting to branch out into designing t-shirts. I'm smitten with the power of words + we all need t-shirts to wear-- so it seems like a good mash-up, don't you think?
A few months ago I designed one for a contest over at Raising Up One, and I enjoyed the process so much that I figured I might as well go for it and see where it ends up.
I'm still not sure what it's going to look like, but right now here's what we're thinking. . . we'd like to introduce one new t-shirt design each month. We'll run a pre-order on each design for 2 weeks, and then send it off to the printer.
Each month’s design will vary, as will the style/color of the shirt that it will be printed on.
It is really important to us that we offer a product that we love. We didn't want to select a cheap, scratchy, unisex tee for both the Men and Women, so we've spent a lot of time researching every option we could find. And here's what we're offering this month:
For the Ladies we've picked Bella's v-neck tee:
"This fitted ladies tee is crafted out of a super-soft baby jersey knit. The set-in v-neck and feminine sleeves make for a flattering silhouette."
And for the men, we've selected American Apparel's Fine Jersey:
"Our softest and most smooth 100% Fine Jersey Cotton Tee is a great choice for anybody looking for a lightweight, slightly fitted shirt."
Eventually we'd like to add children's tees and onesies to the mix, but we'll start here and see where it goes. I'm not 100% sure that we'll offer a men's tee each month, but you can count on a new women's design each time.
Here’s a sneak peek at our design for January!

We have been so blessed by the amount of money we've raised so far for our adoption, but we still have a long way to go. Like everything else in our etsy shop, 100% of the proceeds from our t-shirt sales will go to fund our adoption and bring home our next little one.
