I’m finally getting around to posting this hip dinosaur shirt that I made along with the Shark Shirt for a sweet little 3-year old boy.

I wanted to make him 2 shirts, but wanted each to be a different color. I couldn’t find plain t-shirts at my local Target, so I found some at the craft store. However, my only choices were white and black.

White is easy to work with, because most colors & patterns work well on a white background. However, as a parent, I know white is not always ideal when you’re dealing with young kids.

This was the first time I’d made one of my designs on black, and I wanted to make sure it popped. I picked this lime green pattern because I thought it would make a good dinosaur pattern and would be nicely offset by the black.
