Getting T-Shirty …

We just love making bespoke, arty-farty T-shirts here at Trashcan Emporium. Lee had always wanted to design T-shirts and really enjoyed creating our Icon range – we have some available at the studio for immediate purchase or they can be ordered from us via social media message or email.

We can also make one-off T-shirts by individual request …

We also have our unique studio T-shirts …

And we can even ensure the family are wearing matching holiday T-shirts just like this cheesy lot (who I love to bits) …

We can turn the design in your head into a unique, personal, personalised T-shirt …

Orders being taken for Christmas NOW!!!

Getting Shirty …

After a month of being unable to knit or sew with this damn shoulder injury, I spent this morning making Lee a cool bowling shirt. At school I had this lovely kind old teacher Mrs Bees who taught me sewing and home economics. I was once very unruly in her class. She spoke to me after class and was so sad about how I had behaved. I felt so guilty that I never misbehaved in her class again. So a nod to Mrs Bees for teaching me a bit of sewing and a lot of humility ❤️

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.

Can I cut it? 

So I have had a few hours to play with my new cutting machine … the Silhouette Cameo. Took me a while to get to grips with it but once I managed to get the blade in the right way up (don’t ask) I had some fun … ok they are pretty simple but hey it’s my first attempt …
