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 stunning Fairytale fabric is original and dates from the 1950's. It has a selvedge to one side with the Sanderson Fabrics mark. It is a very rare find.
The centrepiece of the fabric is a large panel showing Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother in a before and after scene. They are surrounded by various other nursery rhyme characters including Old Mother Hubbard, The Cat and the Fiddle, Little Miss Muffet and many others. They are all printed on to a pale pink cotton and linked together with a trailing leaf pattern.
This is a beautiful vintage cotton, the illustrations are detailed and charming and it would make a lovely centrepiece for a quilt, cushion or bag. It is reclaimed but in good, strong condition with no fading. There are some faint stitch lines to the top of one piece - see photograph.
This fabric has a vertical repeat of 48cm and the characters are between 15cm and 20cm in height. There are two pieces available, each measuring 58cm in length, (so you will get one complete repeat).
