A friend of mine had a birthday recently, and I wanted to make him something he could not get anywhere else.
I wanted to make a beer holster for him, and yes it does what the name implies.
So he is in a band and he likes pinup girls (who doesn't) and day of the dead motifs.  So I created for him the No Guante, No Amor beer holster. (I took the carving patterns from my wife embroidery collection of Jenny Hart patterns)



Here is the finished product.  From the front you get the girl, the skull, and the saying No Amor.

From the Sides is when you get the full message.



Here is a closeup of the girl.  She was hand carved by me, and I used paints to color and shade her in.
