i find myself missing things from the US, and california in particular.  like taco trucks.  thus, this year for halloween, i decided to pay homage to one of my favourite things: sugar skulls


inspired by a vintage look, i bought a few sheets at the salvation army and started working.  i drafted the patterns, dyed, sewed, added ribbon, and embroidered. 


to fashion the embroidery, i spent time researching traditional mexican embroidery flowers and techniques.  i drew on the design with pencil and had a good time playing with my embroidery thread.  it had been a long time.


the roses were also made with fabric from the salvation army.  i ripped strips, cut a scalloped pattern and then burned it, gathered the straight edge, sewed the layers together, and used my handy glue gun to attach each flower to a hair clip.
