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 is a fabulous Paddington Cotton dating from 1981. It was produced by Paddington & Co Ltd and FilmFair Ltd in 1981 and may have been made to coincide with the American release of the original televsion show voiced by Michael Horden.
This vintage cotton is called D-I-Y and shows Paddington in a number of sticky situations as he tries to come to terms with decorating. The drawings are beautiful and detailed and the character sizes range from 18cm to 44cm.
This is a curtain weight cotton, unused and with both selvedges intact. There is full attribution on one of them - a rare find. It would make a lovely throw or bedcover - or even curtain! The weight of the cotton makes this suitable for most projects, cushions, bags or even some vintage upholstery.
Paddington D-I-Y cotton is 125cm wide and sold in metre lengths. If you order more than one it will come as a continuous piece.
If Paddington is your love then head to the shop for some other prints.
