You’re going to look really good in these gardening t-shirts!
How do I know? Well, I recently visited my family and gifted them all their new gardening t-shirts. They promptly put them on and we all walked to the park together to hang out on a beautiful summer day.
We kept joking that we were a family reunion of people who love gardening. Even though half the group doesn’t even have a vegetable garden.
They spanned the age ranges of 6 – 71 and every one of them looked as cute as can be in their shirts. See the below photo for proof.
Here’s what my sister-in-law texted me later in the week,
“My new t-shirt is very flattering. It’s my new favorite! I totally want to buy another color ASAP.”
I’m thrilled to announce that you no longer have to be a member of my family to get one of these new t-shirts!
They’re officially available in my Etsy shop.
There are two different t-shirt choices (fitted and looser fit), three screenprint colors (black, white and full color) and lots of t-shirt colors to choose from!
What are you waiting for?! Go check them out here.
Shirts for Garden Lovers
I don’t really have a budget for professional models, and I’m not sure I’d want them anyway. It’s way more fun to take photos of family and friends wearing the shirts.
You know, real people with different ages and body types!
This is my mom, isn’t she the cutest?
She’s wearing the second design that will be released next month, but it’s the same brand of t-shirt that’s for sale right now.
She’s wearing a women’s fitted shirt in Berry with white print. I love the color she picked out.
And my sister! A natural model, I’d say. I only wish I took photos of her in more shirts this day. She makes them look so good!
She’s also wearing the fitted women’s shirt, but with black print.
This handsome devil is my husband, Mark. He’s been an incredibly good sport in being my male model and taking photos of me in the women’s shirts.
He’s wearing the Grey unisex/men’s shirt with black print.
This is me in my happy place – my front yard garden. I’m wearing the fitted women’s shirt in True Royal with a full color print.
The Story Behind the Shirts
I’ve been gardening for 20 years and have always struggled to find gardening t-shirts I like. I’ve always played with the idea of creating my own designs.
I’ve even kept a spreadsheet of ideas for phrases and images.
So, this year I decided to partner with women artists and designers to bring to life my ideas for gardening t-shirts I would wear myself!
These are unique designs you can’t get anywhere else. Growing food is my passion and I created these shirts for other people who love gardening just as much as I do.
This has been a fun project that combines many of my interests – art, design, small and women-owned businesses, and gardening.
I know we gardeners are very passionate about our beloved pastime and aren’t afraid to show our love of growing our own food to the world!
We came up with four different designs and I’ll be releasing one a month for the rest of the year. Stay tuned!
For now, grab one (or more!) for yourself and a gardening friend.
