A little while ago Trashcan Emporium created our first fabric using lots of Lee’s Bic Biro Skull drawings for the design which we uploaded and ordered at the Spoonflower website. As we were attending a purple themed wedding yesterday I decided to use some of the fabric on a unique bowling shirt for Lee. Each individual drawing has Lee’s signature to it and there are 9 different skull drawings on the fabric in total.
I used a very versatile pattern by McCall’s, which mean that I could literally use this pattern hundreds of times and never make two shirts the same! However, I am in the middle of sewing another exactly the same for someone very special on the other side of the world ❤️
Do you love this shirt too? Or can you see it in different fabrics or colour? I’m happy to make these shirts to order so let me know if you’d like one made for you too!
I love helping people get all ‘arty farty’ and I have such a happy time hosting creative experiences in The ThreadShed. This weekend a Mother and Son visited all the way from Connecticut in the good ole US of A and designed some fabulous Tees to celebrate Grandpa’s 99th birthday! (Fair play Grandpa that is pretty epic). Also the son was so impressed with Lee’s original artwork that he booked in to have the image tattooed on his shoulder and on his very last day in the UK too! Damn good taste that man!!!
The next day my visitors were an adorable, loved up couple, celebrating their second wedding anniversary by enjoying a gloriously sunny, long weekend in beautiful Pembrokeshire. The second anniversary is traditionally “cotton” and so what could be more perfect than making a couple of Tees in the ThreadShed huh?
Happy Monday all and another creative fun day for me ❤️
Blinkin’ love Trash and Woody together … two top blokes, doing what they love, supporting each other, developing each other, inspiring each other, creating amazing tattoos and wonderful art, and also having some fun ❤️
Forever Art Tattoo Studio Pembroke for an ace Tattoo by top blokes and maybe some live music too! 🎶
I absolutely love adding a few new T-Shirt designs to our collection! Brother-in-law came to visit this weekend and is a fan of the ‘old skool’ Tattoo style art. We found some great pieces in Lee’s drawing book in and I was able to add them onto some T-shirts for him to take back to London. Inspired by the new designs I decided it was time to make myself a new Tee too and used Lee’s flaming heart and dagger drawing that I received as my Valentine Gift this year. Instead of wearing my heart on my sleeve I can now wear it on my Tee.
Don’t forget any of Lee’s art you admire can also be added to a Tee and of course will proudly bear our unique ‘Trashcan Emporium’ label.
We also have a pretty good selection of arty Tees in the studio at the mo so why not stop by and wear your art on your Tee too!
We sometimes have some wonderfully unusual ideas brought to us. The other day Lee had popped down Main Street and upon his return to the studio found this on the couch …
He immediately went into high alert, wondering whether gang warfare was about to commence in sleepy Pembroke, until he was advised by Woody that a customer had just brought them in to support his idea for a tattoo design.
Lee then worked his magic for this very personal and unique design …
And we had a very happy customer who got the exact tattoo that was in his head created from his personal hammer and knife…
I simply love receiving a special ‘arty farty’ creation from the husband on Saint Valentine’s Day. This year my gift was a burning heart pierced with a dagger, set against a shocking pink backdrop showered with hearts, declaring simply “LOVE. Well I do and he does and we hope you do too!
Hope it was a happy Valentines Day for you all (whether it was filled with hearts and daggers or not!) 💜
