Batman '66 cushion covers

Post by Therin of Andor » Tue Jan 07, 2020 5:11 pm

Some of my favourite T-shirts of the 80s and 90s, now preserved as scatter cushions by my niece. Some shirts were too tiny to ever fit me again, or too stained to wear. Several are now back-to-back designs. Batman, Robin and Superman are backed with satin in their cape colours! Super special.

My niece did try to save the captions on the "Batman '66" shirts, but the shapes weren't working. They are beautifully lined with iron-on interfacing! Gorgeous.
