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 pale blue 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. There is 4 metres available.
This is a salvaged cotton, it's soft from years of washing and has a gentle, overall fade - have a look at the close up photo of Tintin to get a clear idea of condition. There are a couple of very small marks and a faint fold line from storage - these are scattered. Overall though the cotton is strong and the fabric is perfectly useable; I would happily include it in a project.
This Tintin print is early and 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.
This Tintin cotton is 140cm wide and sold by the metre. If you order more than one unit, it will come as a continuous piece.
