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.  Cheesy
Whilst texting of course!  Wink

I like this too! From what I can see it looks like the lining would compliment  it quite nicely.

Great skulls!  I have never heard of light weight pellon.  I'll have to look into it. Awesome tote.
