Made from a Mexican folklorico print cotton fabric.



I've completed another tote, this one different in structure and a little different Dias de los Meurtos fabric then the first. This one is reversible with a shoulder carry strap.

Thank you both! I love this fabric too. I do know how unusual this motif can seem to those unfamiliar with Day of the Dead (Dias de los Meurtos). While it is quite spooky looking, it really is a celebration for those that this is part of their heritage.
