Day of the Dead is pretty Halloweenish, right?

I made a Catrina doll tutorial using a dollar store skeleton for my doll group.

I do wish I'd ironed the pink satin before making her skirt, though!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks! 

I just watched your sugar skull tutorial.  I have everything, even the meringue powder, but it's ALWAYS humid and rainy here.  Maybe I'll make agar molds instead (gelatin melts too quickly here).    Hmmm, maybe it's time to move back to California.

It is super rainy where I am. The skulls I did for that video are still around. We don't have the humidity though, so that might come into play. I keep them stored in our downstairs pantry.

maybe I could make them out in the garage; it's hotter and dryer in there.
