This was made for Kiwi-Chickie in the "What's Your Sign?" swap. She's a Taurus, and some wist-stalking revealed an interest in skulls (including the sugar variety), so I made this out of felt. I'm really proud of it - it's my first felt project, and it's all from my own design. I couldn't find any Dia de los Muretos bull skulls to go by, so this is what I came up with:





Thanks for looking!

Thanks, all! It was my first time working with felt, which was a bit frustrating at first when I was putting all the layers together but I decided I loved working with it in the end. Smiley

Very cool. What an awesome idea. I'm thinking of how I could do some other signs in a Day of the Dead theme. Thanks for the inspiration.
