Shirt Story

the green egg!

You would not, could not, buy a tee.
You would not, could not wear it, see,
If its stiff fabric made you scratch,
If it was made in one big batch.

Green Egg shop sews tees locally
That get kiddos shouting with glee.
With cotton and ecospun felt,
They’re soft enough to make you melt.

Find styles for big kids and babies.
Long sleeves! Short sleeves! Cute onesies!
Choose hand-stitched animal designs,
Or robots, trucks — they’re all so fine.

You do so like
Organic tops.
Thank you, thank you,
Green Egg shop.
