Superman pillow (handmade) (C. 1994)


Back in the early 1990s, my Aunt Betty had been very involved in sewing.  You name it, she made it… anything from dolls, to quilts, and dresses.  She knew that I was a fan of Superman since I was a child and that I grew into a collector as well.

One Christmas, she gave me a gift that I didn’t expect…  a Superman pillow made from a fabric that was sold at the time.  The front side features a minimalist image of Superman (with his, then, long hair) looking to the side.  The back of the pillow featured a large ’S’ symbol. The seams are perfect and the filling is still fluffy as ever.

My aunt died in 2007.  I still have the pillow today and will keep it in my collection for as long as I live.

Thank you, Aunty.
