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 vintage children's fabric is filled with Ladybird's travelling on Butterflies, fishing from Lilypads and snoozing in leaf hammocks! It's a Sanderson design using the famous "Ladybird" brand created in the 1960's by Pasolds Ltd. This fabric probably dates from the mid-sixties.
I've added these Ladybirds to quilts in the past so you could cut up this piece for your own designs. Otherwise just use it whole to add a rare bit of sixties fabric history to a smaller project.
This vintage ladybird cotton measures 60cm x 80cm and is in good condition with bright colours. There are some old stitch marks to the bottom ( see the last picture) and a couple of faint marks, but that's it. Nothing to really worry about. Match it up with the othe vintage Ladybird cotton in the shop for a red and black theme!
