A unique Tee for a Strange Fish…

So a lovely friend of ours had his 50th birthday this week. He is known affectionately as “Strange-Fish” and I decided to make him a special, strange-fish kinda birthday Tee. I love making one-off T-shirts knowing that no one else in the world will have one exactly the same. I just love how it turned out too!

Oh and don’t forget if you want a unique Tee for a special friend, or special occasion, or just to be damn different, we can help!

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 ❤️

Bathing Belle…

I had a gorgeous, retro, flowery swim cap as a birthday present off my lovely sister. Blinkin' love it so much! I snapped a fun selfie to show Sister and Lee how perfectly perfect for me it is. Lee decided it would make a great drawing too! So I am now immortalised forever as a Bathing Belle. I just love being married to my talented artist ❤️

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 ❤️

What do you think?



 

Magnetic charms …

Lee has been busily making some cool stuff with Das clay … I sourced him some cool tattoo inspired cookie cutters and we love the results so far. We are going to paint them and make some cool fridge magnets … I think they are soooooo cool! 

Cutting it …

Feeling very excited to play with my new toy this weekend. I blame my sister for this expenditure after a little visit resulted in a big spend. All it took was her showing me the software and how easily it could translate Lee’s art onto card, paper, felt or material and cut it all out beautifully and out came the credit card! She promised me some Skype tutorials and I was sold (and it was sold to me). Some fun and unusual projects on the way …
