Projects > miniature clothing project

As a homage to my mother’s best friend Mabel Dishroon. I made this shirt from a handkerchief that she received from a student in one of her fifth grade classrooms. She literally had a collection of these all carefully ironed and kept in a stack. I used to sometimes sit with Miss Mabel in church where I would sometimes play with these handkerchiefs. Since she knew I loved them she requested I have the collection in her will. This fabric is from 1942 and was one of the first she received. I made this miniature just after her passing. I left the original sticker label that came with the unused kerchief.
