sentimental sewing and boxes

my mom recently drove down and brought a bunch of boxes of things left over from my childhood. in it was some sweet doll clothing that my aunt had stitched for my mom in the 50's. sentimental objects like this are hard because you don't really want a child to use them, but what else are you going to do with them. because of this, they typically end up in a box where no one can appreciate them.

i decided to put this skirt and top on display by using a shadowbox i had lying around. first, i covered a piece of foam core with a vintage sheet, then i tacked the clothing to the foam core with tiny pins. i sealed up the back of the shadowbox and that was it.

quick custom sentimental artwork - definitely the best kind!
