We create high-quality, handcrafted upcycled flannel shirts and denim jackets with a dorky edge.
Each unique piece is created using repurposed t-shirt graphics that have been made into a one-of-a-kind patch.
No two designs are alike.
Collaborate with us to create the perfect design for you or that dork in your life.
Hi! I’m Janet and I am the founder of Crafty Dork Designs.
For nearly two decades, I was a high school Wellness teacher. During that time, I always encouraged students accept their uniqueness and embrace their inner dork. And I was not afraid to lead by example!
In 2020, the world changed, and so did my future. I bought myself a sewing machine, watched YouTube videos, and the rest is history.
Bitten by a radioactive sewing machine, mild-mannered former middle school science teacher Greg Warren developed uncanny powers...by creating sweet shirts and jackets, he protects the world from a total lack of awesomeness.
Work with us to design a unique, one-of-a-kind shirt , denim jacket, pillow, or tote bag for that special someone! We have fun graphics from a wide variety of genres including music, gaming, horror, anime, super heroes, television, movies & more! If we don't have it, we will do our best to locate what we need to create your gift. You can also send us your materials and we will sew them for you!
We are available to meet in person, virtual, or through email or text.
Orders must be received by December 12th for guaranteed delivery before Christmas.
We feel if you love what you create it will show in the finished product. It is hard to not keep all of our flannels!

Because all our our flannel & jackets are preowned, that means that have been preshrunk. There is a certain amount of inconsistency in sizing. We suggest to order a size up!
