As Hard to Find as the Talking Fish! (Maybe harder...)
Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk

This is a large panel of stunning Rupert fabric by Coloroll. These panels come up very rarely, this is only the second set that I have come across. All the Nutwood regulars are represented - there's even some Girl Guides looking in on the scene.
I have left the hemming in place at the bottom of the panel. It would make a lovely curtain, but it's a beautifully soft cotton so could also be turned into bags, cushions, clothes, quilts...
The colours are vibrant and reflect that fifties feel of the original Rupert illustrations. There are no marks or holes and no fading. The cotton is marked with the Express Newspapers mark and dated 1982.
This panel measures 110cm wide x 165cm long - including the hem.
