These are from the pajamas my grandfather was wearing when he died in 1993. They are among the first of the garments that I miniaturized. These were an ode to him. Some special way for me to thank him for teaching me to love art and to love myself. I kept these pajamas under my bed for a long time not knowing what to do with them but knowing I didn't want to discard them either. I decided I needed to do an art project of some sort with them. This project is the manifestation of this idea.
Oh! And another thing, my grandfather and I spent many, many Saturdays in the floor making doll clothes for Barbie. He will surely, never be forgotten.
