T-shirts That I Want To Wear... and Share

I started designing t-shirts because I wanted a t-shirt to use to promote my second children's book, "Petunia, the Girl Who Was NOT a Princess." I made the "NOT a Princess" and "Not JUST a Princess" designs to use as giveaway items.

I didn't plan to keep making more designs... but I was hooked. I'd look at pictures or at objects around the house and see t-shirts.

There are so many t-shirts out there, but not many like I wanted. I like a V-neck, a fit that skims my curves without clinging to them, and designs that are fun and whimsical, not snarky or offensive.

So I started making designs for my own t-shirts. Most of my designs start with a photograph. I apply filters, fiddle with the contrast, add colors, and try out layouts until I have a design that I like and that will work on a t-shirt. Once I have a design I like, I order a trial shirt via my manufacturer, and if I like it, I make it available in this shop.

I know that t-shirt fit is a very personal thing, so I make my designs available on a variety of styles and fits. I also put my designs on a range of colors- but only when the shirt color works with the design.

I'll keep making designs as long as I keep seeing them in the objects around me. Check back often for new designs! Or follow us on Twitter (@AnnorlundaInc), like us on Facebook (, or sign up for our mailing list (
