Introducing EmmaDilemma!

Emma O’Dell's ukulele created for Pimp My MUF IV, an exhibition of custom painted ukuleles presented by the Melbourne Ukulele Festival, is one of our winning entries for the Suitcase Rummage People's Choice Award!

Hand painted cigar box guitar (made by Blind Kiwi) which was my MUF entry. I don't sell these myself but I will be trying to paint some cigar boxes in my original designs to sell at the May Rummage.

Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Character Cushions available $70 each

A creative mother of two young children and work-at-home drawing, painting, designing, and sewing for EmmaDilemma, Emma combines crafty bloodline and career as a graphic artist with a love of 20th century popular culture and art to create one-of-a-kind Handmade Rock'n'Roll Homewares.
She designs and creates embroidered wedding pillows, art, custom cushions, aprons and accessories, and also recently, painted cigar box guitars. 
Inspired by 1950’s culture, mythology, pin-up, rock‘n’roll, tattoos, Dia de los Muertos, tiki, rockabilly & roots music her wares are made from vintage, recycled materials. Everything is designed, stitched and hand-assembled by Emma so no two items are alike - they are all one-offs!

Find Emma at our next Melbourne Suitcase Rummage, May 19 at the Thornbury Theatre.

Reversible Pin Up style Aprons using vintage, new and upcycled materials from $25 each

A delicious selection of handmade fabric hair/brooch accessories using mixed materials and trimmings from $10 each
