Introducing: Soho Bandana!

I’m so excited to introduce you to SoHo Bandana, our new fabric line from Red Rooster Fabrics, which we are debuting at Quilt Market next month.

Years ago I fell in love with the detail and colors of vintage bandanas. I started collecting them with a  fabric line in the back of my mind, but as often happens it took a few years and one big hit of inspiration before the design became a reality.

I came across this amazing apron my friend Deb Dusenberry had for sale on her site, and I knew that it was time to start designing SoHo Bandana.

I pulled out my vintage bandana collection, as well as some amazing tooled leather pieces I had acquired and got to work. I wanted to create fabric that had a classic vintage print, but in updated, contemporary colors. This collection represents a new way of designing for Indygo Junction. For the first time I have designed a fabric line and created patterns specifically to coordinate with it. I’m excited to have the different design aspects of our business in harmony.


Recently, I’ve been excited to see bandana print trending this season! I found two gorgeous dresses at Anthropologie featuring the print, and I am in love with the contemporary use of bandana print in the home from Martha Stewart. I’ve also seen it featured in shoes, menswear, buttons and even on cookies!

For more on SoHo Bandana check out our Indygo Junction blog. And be sure to let your local fabric shop know that you want them to order SoHo Bandana next month at Quilt Market!

    having a pattern in mind before you design the fabric is a great idea. It is especially helbful when sizing border prints.

    Bandanas, soft and don’t take themselves seriously. Love the bucket bag, but I will pass on the flats. Today would be the perfect day for that red dress.

    Oh my! Cannot wait for this line . . . . love bandanas. I’ve got lots of sewing plans for this line!

    It looks light and airy. I’ve always liked bandana prints, it’ll be nice to get in yardage.
