I can wear a different shirt to work every day for three months. This shirt with partying monsters was made recently by Maria, from fabric that I bought ca. 2005.

A more traditional Hawaiian style print, black with red and white flowers. At the beginning of the project I bought mostly traditional aloha prints. (All of the shirts this week didn't exist before October 2014, but the fabric had been purchased ca. 2005.)

Rebecca made this shirt for me. Red dots, palm trees. On some of the shirts, there wasn't enough matching fabric to complete the shirt, so Rebecca made the pockets, collar, etc. from a solid red.

Cowboys and cowgirls. Kim made this shirt originally for her father, but he didn't wear it much so I ended up with it.

Blue/red dragon fabric. After I bought a number of floral prints, I looked for Japanese and other Asian motifs. Rebecca made a shirt and matching headbands for me.
