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 vintage linen is a screen printed fabric by Burgess Ledward & Co called "Shirefolk".
Birds, Insects and Mammals are shown in an imaginary world where mice hitch lifts with snails and ladybirds and rabbits travel to London.
This charming, vintage children's fabric is full of stories with colourful animals and flowers printed onto an off-white linen. The background is filled with line drawings of country fields and houses.
The fabric is reclaimed, in excellent condition and with a selvedge to both sides and full attribution. The characters measure about 15cm in height and the vertical repeat is 62cm. It's in very good condition with no marks or tears. There are a couple of faint fold lines at the bottom.
This Shirefolk fabric is a midweight linen and suitable for most projects. It measures 120cm across and in 72cm lengths. If you order more than one unit it will come as a continuous piece. Also available in pink in the shop.
