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 the Bear cotton blend fabric has a story to tell of Rupert and a Cloud. The story is made up of 9 different story panels, each of which has a picture and some text.
The fabric is marked as "Rupert Approved" and is copyrighted to the Express Newspaper Group and dated 1986.
This Rupert cotton is reclaimed but in bright, crisp condition with good colours.There are faint fold lines and a slight fade to the very edge of some panels - see last photograph - but these are faint and would probably disappear when you hem.
Each picture in the Rupert panel measures about 18cm square, which makes them a good size for cutting up seperately to use as part of a quilt, bag or cushion. Perfect for patchwork too! You can also use them in sequence to tell the story - please note though that the 9 squares won't always come in the correct order, it depends how the fabric divides.
If you order more than one panel it will come as a continuous piece, either lengthways or widthways depending on the fabric remaining.
