This is my first post so please bear with me.   Wink  I had this Sugar Skull fabric for at least year now and had no idea what to make with it.  I finally decided to make this adorable tote bag.  I hope you like it.  Grin

I loved this so much that I went on a misson to my local market looking for some fabric that might be half as good as this one - well, I found some the same  Smiley  Smiley  Smiley  So pleased!  (It was a real shock as I'm in the UK and this fabric is an American design, but I found a guy at the local market who does trips to Dallas to pick up fabric supplies - I'll be back there a lot, I can see!!!  If anyone's interested, it was in Leeds market.) 

Thanks for the inspiration Ravengirl103!  Grin

This fabric is one of my faves!  You can find some online.  It's called Mini Calaveras by Alexander Henry.

Thanks!

Awww!  Thanks!  Sewing is a ton of fun.  You can always look into a secondhand machine and take a few classes.
