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 Tintin cotton has all of Herge's main characters scattered through it. Captain Haddock, Thomson & Thompson, Professor Calculus and Captain Haddock join Tintin and Snowy in a variety of scenes.
The characters average about 10cms in height and are well spaced on this design. You could cut it to use in a patchwork project or quilt or use it complete. It would make a lovely lampshade if you combine it with one of the lampshade kits in the shop!
This Tintin print is a midweight fabric with a copyright date of 1983 and was produced by Lombard (d'apres Herge). It's a reclaimed white cotton with good colours and no damage. I spotted a couple of faint, background marks but nothing serious. There is some faint pilling but again, nothing serious.
It measures 133cm across and is sold by the half metre. If you order more than one unit it will come as a continuous piece to a maximum of 1.5 metres. Please note that the vertical repeat is 58cm.
I've never seen this design before so I'm quite excited to be able to offer it. It's my favourite to date! Head over to the shop to see other Tintin and French character fabrics.
