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 beautiful Beatrix Potter cotton dates from the 1950's I think, and is my favourite of all the Potter prints. All the main characters are included in exquisite detail and the trailing foilage and line drawings that link them are just perfect.
Everyone that you might expect to see are here. Mrs Tiggywinkle, Jemima Puddleduck, Squirrel Nutkin and Peter Rabbit to name a few. The colours and print quality are good and the fabric itself is strong and perfect for any number of projects - from upholstery to quilts.
This is a hard to find print and this is reclaimed fabric. One side has a neat hem which I have left intact rather than cut into it. The background colour is a very pale blue - not cream as it appears in the photos. For some reason my camera is unable to capture it so please bear this in mind. There is a very slight fade to one edge which extends to about 3 cm and faint fold lines across the bottom piece from the old hem.
This Beatrix Potter cotton measures 55cm wide x 50cm long. If you order more than one unit it will come as a continuous piece.
