Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
It's hard to do justice to this reclaimed Jungle Book Cotton. It's filled with scenes from the Disney film all shown on a sunny yellow background. It's the first time I've found it in almost 5 years of keeping a look out.
Mowgli, Sheer-Khan and Kaa the hypnotic snake all star alongside a scene from the King of the Swingers song.
Jungle Book fabric is really hard to find and I just have two pieces of this. I've left them big so that each one has the complete monkey centrepiece as well as one or two of all the other scenes.
The fabric is marked with the Disney copyright. I haven't been able to date it, I'm guessing from the colours and the copyright mark that it's from the mid seventies. Eitherway, it is 100% cotton and in good vintage condition. The colours are bright and there are no tears or thin areas. There are a couple of tiny marks but that's it.
The scenes measure between 25cm and 40cm in height and are well spread. Use them individually or keep the whole piece.
This Jungle Book cotton measures a HUGE 180cm wide and each piece is 85cm long. It goes well with the blue Jungle Book fabric in the shop.
