Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
Fabulous vintage Asterix and Obelix cotton in bright colours and a cartoon style. This French cotton is filled with images that show Asterix and Obelix explaining what it means to be a Gaul. Specifically, what it means to be a Gaul in a rebel village holding out against Julius Ceaser!
This is a vintage print dating to the 1980's and has a full copyright mark. The images are the same as those in the books and so are full of the wit and wisdom of Goscinny and Uderzo. It's a medium weight and suitable for any kind of project, although if cutting up and patchwork is your thing... this is perfect! Great for bags and cushions too.
This vintage Asterix cotton is in pretty good condition with bright colours.* I spotted a couple of small worn areas but they are near the edge and don't impinge on this fab print. It is 125cm across and comes in 75cm lengths which gives you at least one of each of the panels plus lots more.
*PLEASE NOTE. This cotton has been printed on the slant which means that either the vertical lines, or the horizontal lines can be matched ...but not both! I have chosen to cut it to save the highest number of intact pictures so the piece you receive will always have one side that is a minimum of 75cm but the other may be 95cm. This isn't a mistake by me. If you are cutting this fabric and using it on small projects this is no big problem. If you want to line up the whole piece for a project... I fear it will make you weep. See the last picture for an idea of what I mean. Notwithstanding all this, I still love it!
There are lots of other vintage Asterix fabrics in the shop. (Not to mention Tintin and Lucky Luke if French cartoon characters are your passion).
