Thank you! Smiley You guys are sweet.

And you're right CraftyZary, they're all very individual as skeletons and have different personalities, kind of. This one I wanted to be both scary and beautiful -- because, to me, it reminds me of the beauty of life and the scariness of the unknown, which is death. It will be fun to see what other skeletons come out of my craftiness! Smiley
12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: calavera goodness on a bag on: July 22, 2005 09:07:46 AM
Yeah, I basically just used a smaller sharpie (the bag is dark green so the sharpie wasn't too obvious) and then went to town with the threads. I wanted to do something I liked, with my own design because I didn't feel like having the same pattern that everyone has, even though it is super super cute. I'll probably end up getting one of the sublime stitching ones to teach myself more but this is a good start for me Smiley

I'm not really sure if this is the right spot for this, but it was done with a needle and embroidery thread, so....


I got this plain ole bag that was called a "body bag" (no joke!) and i decided to personalize it a little bit with a needle and some embroidery thread. (The bag was like 10 bucks from Longs Drugstore!) I basically just drew what i wanted to see on the bag using a black sharpie and then stitched away. It's no masterpiece but it was fun to learn.
(The skull pin was a gift from my friend for my birthday and it matches perfectly!)

I might add some more decoration on the top and maybe do more stitches around the box, but for now, i'm happy to have made this bag my own!

I swear, i'm on a dia de los muertos kick. (please excuse the bad digital camera.)

Thank you both for your nice words!

I love all things skeleton (except, strangely enough, real skeletons) so I'll keep on paintin'. Smiley

I LOVE the earring/earbud idea!! I'm CONSTANTLY having to take the buds out and it gets annoying. I usually end up having to stuff one down my shirt to keep it from falling out and taking the other one with it. Smiley

You are very ingenious!

Yay! I am super proud of this painting I did. It took me two days from start to finish. It's acrylic on canvas with some alcohol-based ink for edges. I'm thinking of doing an entire series of day of the dead skeletons and skulls . (I already have one up that my boyfriend "bought" from me of a skeleton holding his heart. He humors my silly artwork.)

My digital camera is crappy, so it's not as vivid as it is in real life. Sad

That's a fantastic idea. Are they just shells all the same sizes? Do they have little pieces of felt on the bottom to keep them from sliding around? (I tried doing something similar with shells but they were really wobbly)

Still, i think it looks really beautiful and calm.

Why not host it on Craftster itself? Smiley
