Colourful Sweary Bobble Hats …

So … our sweary bobble hats really have been in high demand! I am just working on an order of 20 for some very smart bikers in Brum. In the meantime I have been experimenting with some different colours, contrasts and bobble sizes. This colourful bunch of sweary hats will be available £15 each from the studio this afternoon!

Fu#k Cancer …

On the back of our sweary bobble hats, Lee’s best mate in Brum commissioned a politer version, but one with the incredibly strong and powerful message to ‘Fu#k Cancer’. Cancer stole my gorgeous little girl , my beautiful mother, my fun loving brother-in-law and my funny teenage cousin. It has also impacted so many other family members and friends. So I spent much of this weekend knitting up our latest design and this lovely lot will be posted off to their new owners tomorrow! If you want one for yourself then just drop us a message … each sale includes a donation to Cancer Research.

Oh and this is one bobble hat that I will most definitely be wearing with pride … Fu#k Cancer indeed!

Sweary Bobble Hats …

Honestly our sweary bobble hats are so blinkin’ popular … have added a different sweary bobble hat in red and cream! Are you a F**K Off kinda person or a F**K YA! sorta person?

Groovy Baby …

The stash of vintage patterns I inherited from my grandmother helped put the ‘authentic’ into a 1970s themed party this weekend. A friend seeking inspiration for her outfit sought out a bit of help from Trashcan Emporium and granny’s patterns got put to work. Using a 1970’s Jiffy sewing pattern and some amazing 1970s fabric, sourced from an auction, we made sure our lovely friend looked groovy baby! What do you think? Do you dig it? ❤️

Sweary Bobble Hat …

Very happy to have spent this weekend learning more about my knitting machine. Spent yesterday at a brilliant one day workshop learning all sorts of new things. Spent today fine-tuning my sweary bobble hat skills! Soooooooo blinkin’ happy how this one turned out … what do you think?

Stay True and Hold Fast …

Skulls inspire lots of our creative work and I recently finished this cute, sparkly, tattoo inspired, skull evening bag. As with all our bags it is totally, wonderfully, completely unique … another Trashcan Emporium one-off!

The bag measures 7 inches x 7.5 inches and so is just perfect size for phone, keys and cash on a night out (or even a night ‘out out’).

I am going to pop it on our Amazon shop later but if anyone wants to snap it up now then it’s just £10 …

Sharing Gifts … Happy Xmas All …

Thank you to all our lovely family, friends and followers who have supported Trashcan Emporium over the last year … we love creating and sharing and of course more lush creativity to come in 2018 …

Lee and I just swapped Xmas presents … we always make something lovely for each other … Lee made me this stunning wall plaque out of chicken wire and Das clay, whilst I sat cross stitching by the fire Bronte style …
