If you know anything about quilts, you’ll know that autographed quilts are an amazing variation on a traditional, practical, art form. Usually they are a parting gift made by a group of people and given to an individual as a going-away present.
But have you ever seen an autographed shirt?
Actually, I didn’t learn much. It’s a girl’s shirt. It’s probably from the 50’s or 60’s based on the Peter Pan clothing label.
So I don’t even know if the person this was made for ever got the shirt.
One of those huge projects that didn’t quite end up where it was supposed to.
Was it being made for someone who was sick, or going away? That child must have been pretty special to merit so much work.
Too bad someone didn’t indicate the person for whom it was made. It would have been fun to try and track that person down.
It’s up for auction on eBay right now, and not getting a lot of attention. But I’m through enjoying it, and don’t want to clutter my own family heirlooms with things that will just confuse my kids when they go through my stashes of fabric when I die.
Have you ever seen anything else quite like it? Comments welcome!
