T-Shirts for Girls with Power Tools

If you haven’t figured it out yet, one of my biggest motivations for writing my blog is to inspire other women to pick up power tools for the first time and tackle DIY and building projects they have always been too intimidated to try.  It is definitely empowering to be able to tackle your own “honey do” projects around the house or even build your own furniture.

For a long time women have been treated with condescension on the male dominated DIY fields.  I am sure we all have a story of visiting the hardware store only to have the people working their address your spouse instead of you.  (When buying a saw recently the sales guy at the store actually told me "This is probably too much saw for you!" WHAT!?!?!)

Or we have had a male builder or woodworker mansplain something on social media, as if female builders were too busy baking cooking or getting their nails done to understand how how a tool worked.

I’m really proud to be a female DIY’r and Girl with Power Tools, so I wear it on my chest::

That brilliant  design is actually custom hand lattered by my friend Jocie and I think it is AMAZING! 

It also comes with white text on different shirt colors (I obviously like the pink the best, since I still AM girly girl!)

I love the idea of creating my own line of hand lettered tees focusing on the things I am passionate about so I took Jocie’s FANTASTIC hand lettering course and have been practicing.

A while back I created some free (sarcastic) printables for the blog using everything I learned and eventually I’m going to create some fun t-shirt designs.   Power tools (and funny tees) aren’t just for boys anymore!

I realize not everyone wants to design their own shirt, and I have you guys covered too!

All these designs focus on being a woman who loves DIY: girls with power tools tshirt

In the current political environment, women are started to realize just how much power they have can yield when they are brave enough to take it.

We often have to battle for our rightful place right besides men who have typically dominated the DIY field:

We need to flip the stereotype on its head!
silly boys power tools are for girls

Even Ana White has a line of tees aimed at female builders (unless male builders are into lipstick these days!):

Of course, women in the workshop also face more girly challenges from our DIY projects, like our hair:

and our coffee drinking habits:

I love the looks I get when I walk into Home Depot sporting my "Silly Boys" tee.  In fact, I got a TON of compliments on the shirt I was wearing when I filmed this video at a local lumberyard.

I'm excited to shout it from the rooftops:  I'm a girl with power tools and I'm in the woodshop to stay!!
