Hooray for the Hoo Dat!

It's been 2 to 3 years since I first released my Hoo Dat owl design; originally inspired from a cute chubby owl pillow a friend made me and further tweaked to be a play on words - "Who Dat" the favored chant of all New Orleans Saints fans.  So, I thought I'd refresh you what I've done with the design over the years and show off a new product introduced this summer! 

My Hoo Dat tees are available at my brick and mortar, Nest Interiors.  They are a gender neutral 50/50 blend shirt - keeping it's size very well when washed.  I silk-screen these myself and keep to this nice golden yellow shirt; silk-screening dark on light seems to work the best with water based silk-screening.  Each is then heat set and now that I had a few of these tees for a number of years, I can attest you are more likely to collect a few stains on it than the design fade out on you (which reminds me I need a new shirt this season!)

For other colorways and styles of tees, I have made the design available at Cafepress.  Also - check out the super cute messenger bag and pajama set!  Hootie cutie!!

If you know me, you know I had to have Hoo Dat fabric!  Exclusively thru Spoonflower, both variations on the black and gold are available - plus some alternate colorways in pink, blue and a fun orange & black combo perfect for Halloween.  You might remember the cute tote I made last year with it in this post.  Besides many different fabric options - Spoonflower offers this design on gift wrap and wall decals!

This year I partnered with a local print company to put my Hoo Dat owl on durable frost flex cups.  We love them - top shelf dishwasher safe and the design is double sided.  It's 12oz and that just perfect for a beer (or whatever!)  They are packed 6 to a set and come wrapped in cellophane with a bow - a perfect gift that they'll call you a Saint!
