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 Rupert Bear fabric dates from the 1970's and is a cotton mix. Rupert and his chums seem to be holidaying in Rocky Bay and this lovely print shows them all on the beach.
Rupert, Algy, Bill and others are shown building sandcastles and having fun whilst Mr & Mrs Bear watch from their deckchairs.
The colours are vibrant and printed onto a white background. The characters are plentiful and well spaced, they measure around 19cm in height.
This Rupert fabric is quite hard to find and would make a great wall hanging but would also cut well for bags, cushions or patchwork. It measures 130cm across and is sold by the half metre. If you order more than one unit I will always send a continuous piece where possible.
I noticed a couple of small marks on this fabric, which may come out with a soak. I have shown them below but please bear in mind that this is just one small area in the fabric.
