on the fringe!

I’m in the middle of writing a blog piece at the moment about my place in the craft movement as a digital designer. I’ve been thinking about this a lot and was so pleased to see this scoutie girl article on the topic. I’m not 100% with her on every point but on the whole I think she makes a compelling case and achieves her goal of opening up the debate. Hopefully my two pennies worth will be ready in the next couple of day. If you’ve got a minute I would love to hear your thoughts on defining/naming what we do (or am I just worrying about nothing:).

Anyway in the mean time I thought I would share a couple of images from my personal collection of ‘dark haired girls with fringes’ – yes I’m a dark haired girl with a fringe so there's no denying it’s a little narcissistic. Sadly because a lot of the prints are in the UK I can’t show you my whole collection just the few pieces I’ve bought whilst in New Zealand. A couple are very new… so new in fact that they haven’t arrived in the post yet.

1. belle and boo - my favourite spot in winter
2. devon smith for foxes - catrabbit
3. the rabbits nest - a song of deep space

4. hide 'n' seek - my captain5. amy blackwell - me and you number 7


  1. Oh I do love fringe a lot! I have fringe myself, actually but I'm not sure I like the way it looks! I'd love to wear them straight down (a la Zooey D.) but I'm not sure I can pull off the look!

  2. @The Drifter and the Gypsy From your photo it looks like you have the most beautiful hair... and I like the side ways sweep. I'm a straight down in the eye 60's girl all the way:)

  3. So cute - and I love the term "fringe"! (We call them "bangs" in the U.S., which is not nearly as cute!)

  4. Love these! I have the Amy Blackwell Print in my daughter's room. I've been thinking of cutting some bangs myself!

  5. Cute cute! Love them all, esp Devon's -the fox is too darling!
    You have great hair and a super fringe :-) Do a self portrait!

  6. I have the hide'n'seek print too! I <3 it! I also have a devon smith print of a girl with glasses/dark hair and a fringe, and two prints from theblackapple, again dark hair and a fringe! Is that enough to count as a collection? I think so! I actually just dyed my hair from dark with a fringe to red with a fringe, so maybe it's a narcissistic thing with me too...
