Oodles of Poodles…

I find sewing so therapeutic. My grandmother was a dressmaker. My mother sewed all our clothes when we were children, and my sisters both sew beautifully too. We even made our own bridesmaid dresses for a sister wedding once upon a long time ago. In need of distraction and soothing I set about making myself a new summery dress. I wore it for the first time last night and love it. What do you think?

Rosy red apples 🍎 

I am such a girl. I unashamedly adore frills, bows and buttons. As soon as I saw this stunning fabric printed with rosy red apples it reminded me of the sort of fabric a frilly 1950’s pinny would have been made of.  It was this that inspired this frilly,  half circle skirt made using my own design.  

Oh and I also designed the Johnny Cash and June Carter ‘Darlin’ Companion’ vest … love this too as it is the song I danced down the aisle to ❤️

Patching it up … 

I love to upcycle clothes … I keep my eyes and mind wide open for clothes I know I can work a bit of magic with! I love to appliqué, or patch, or sometimes just swapping the buttons … every piece becomes a totally unique one off item! Some, like these gorgeous appliquéd wiggle skirts,  head straight to the studio for sale to our customers. Others, like this cute rose jacket or polka dot pumps,  stay right in my own wardrobe.

Pussy Galorious..

I made this sweet brooch for my lovely friend for her birthday! She has seven adorable pussycats and so I really wanted to make her something cat themed.  I decided I would try making a little felt brooch. I love how cute it turned out! 

Bags and bags and bags 

So we have had a real crafty day today … we have been busy making handbags all day!

Lee has hand painted a gorgeous leather briefcase but I am keeping that under wraps for a little longer. 

In the meantime here are a couple that I finished today.

Ahhhhh it’s Ska! 

We had a commission from a dear friend of ours who wanted a special design Tshirt for his sons birthday. He wanted the design to be Ska themed and Lee went to work on the idea. 

The result are blinking fab and both father and son were so pleased when they picked up the Tshirts from our studio this morning.  The designs are now available for YOU to purchase too! 

Why not dare to be different in a Trashcan Emporium locally designed and produced original Tshirt! 

Oh and Happy Birthday Connor have a fabby day!
