I made this sugar skull tote for my (Dios de los Muertos) swap partner. She has already received so I thought I would post here.
It is made out of a gray herringbone twill denim fabric to make it a little more sturdy. I lined it with a cute cotton plaid print fabric. I forgot to take a pic of the inside but the colors in the plaid coordinate with the skull colors. I cut the skulls out of felt, fused the layers together with regular weight pellon wonder under and stitched each layer together w/ decorative silver metallic thread. I attatched the skulls to the bag w/ the regular weight pellon and stitched around each skull for added stability.
My sis was kind enough to model the bag for an action shot.
Whilst texting of course!
