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 fabulous Tintin cotton is covered with characters in various scenes. My favourite is the car with the Thomson and Thompson in but Tintin, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus and others appear too.
Herge's characters are well spaced on this cotton and vary in size from 6cm to 15cm. You could use the cotton as it is or divide it up to make lots of pieces for patchwork or quilting.
This is the first time I've found this Tintin print so I think it's a fairly rare one. It's hard to date as there's no selvedge, but I would guess that this is from the 1970's or early 80's.
There are two pieces available, each measures 120cm across x 68 cm long. You will get at least one of each character plus some repeats.
