Vintage Tintin Fabric - Destination Moon - Blue - 50cm x 60cm
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 Herge/Moulinsart blue cotton was made in 1999 and has mugshots of all the characters involved with the rocket that featured in the Destination Moon stories.
The portraits are based on Herge drawings and include Tintin and Snowy as well as Professor Calculus, the Thompson Twins and Captain Haddock. The drawings are well spaced with each one measuring about 6cm x 6cm. You could even cut out some of the pictures for patchwork.
The cotton is a pale blue, the print is dark blue and there are red squares interspsersed. This is salvaged fabric but in excellent condition with strong colours and no tears or holes. There are a couple of small marks dotted around which I've tried to photograph - see the last picture. I don't think they are a big worry though.
There are two pieces remaining, each measures 50cm x 60cm - perfect for a cushion cover or small project.
