figure 8 hipster style

by Nova on July 25, 2013

Loving the new range, ‘Hipster’, by Shannon Lamden  for Riley Blake. It’s got something for everyone I reckon – it’s got pretty, it’s got cool,  it’s got quirky  & the colours are just great too.

3 designs in 3 colourways. Yum.

& I’ve been having a little play with it. Yay!

I really love the faux knit & the cross stitch designs & couldn’t resist whipping them up into some figure 8 scarves….

I mean come on, a non knitted knitty scarf – what’s not to love?!

I mixed the prints  up with some grey voile & did a cross between Anna Maria Horners & Fancy Tiger Crafts tutorials.  I did the mobius twist a la Fancy Tiger but followed Anna Maria’s lead & finished the join by hand.  Fabric measurements were pretty much as Fancy Tiger &  I made up the width of the hipster fabrics with an extra piece of voile. Easy Peasy.

I have a couple more Hipster makes which I just need to get a picture of – will be back to share those before the week is out.

I’ve been a fan of Shannon’s fabrics (under her Aunty Cookie label) for a long time so it’s really great  to see her designs being picked up by one of the big guys :)

You can nab your own pieces of Hipster from Shannon’s etsy shop.

Check out your local quilt store for Hipster too & it’s also available at these online stores…

Love this line! Kerry (verykb) and I were swooning over these at Fat Quarterly Retreat last week and wondering who they were by. The scarves look fab too, of course.

I love this line as well, and love what you did with them! I’m thinking a bag, and I some new couch cushions.

Cool, that’s about as close as I can come to knitted anything, perfect for those of us with wool allergies lol

The scarves show off the “Hipster” line so well, very pretty and perfect for our warmer climate. I can’t wait to see what Shannon does next :-)
