    I haven’t ever done it, but oh how I wish I was creative enough to create even simple, basic t-shirts! I love the examples you have here, but to come up with those on my own would be hard for me. But the info you have here is invaluable.

    I have not designed my own clothing, but I sure would love to make some T-shirts that my son and I would love. I never thought about designing my own t-shirt until now. I would love to give it a shot.
