Over on Etsy, CheeseBeforeBedtime is making these sweet applique pieces featuring your favourite hipster types!

This is Jo: “Recognise me? I’m Jo – you know, that girl down the street that always looks hip and you have a secret girl crush on. Nice to meet you.

Does a hipster immortalised in embroidery epitomise the hipster movement? I dunno, it’s close!
