Pink Shirefolk Linen by Burgess Ledward 60cm x 55cm
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 lovely vintage linen is a screen printed fabric by Burgess Ledward & Co called "Shirefolk". This is the pink version of this design, with pale pinks and greens on an off-white background. There is a multicoloured version available in the shop.
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 one side. The characters measure about 15cm in height. There are fold lines to the sides and bottom at about 4cm.
This Shirefolk fabric is a midweight linen and suitable for most projects. It measures 60cm across and 55cm long. If you order more than one unit it will come as a continuous piece.
