Dia de los Muertos

Standard

DotD Pincushion

This time of year, it’s Dia de los Muertos in the Southwest.  Time to celebrate our ancestors, family and friends who have passed, and contributed to our lives in many different ways.

I decided to celebrate by embroidering these sugar skulls.  The ones with the pins are pincushions, and the white one is filled with catnip.  Can’t forget the kittens, after all!  These embroidery designs were freebies (woohoo!) from Urban Threads

DotD FabricI did a little experimentation with the pincushions, one is filled with repti-sand and the other filled with crushed walnuts.  Both these fillings can be found at your local pet supply store in the reptile section, believe it or not.

To continue with the Day of the Dead theme, I fell for the fabrics at right, courtesy of EQuilter.com

I’m not sure what I’ll make from all of them, placematts for the off-white in the center left.  The rest fall under the infamous heading “To Be Determined“.

  1. THESE ARE JUST GREAT. I WEAR MY “STUFF” FOR HALLOWEEN AND DAY OF THE DEAD… IS THERE ENOUGH FABRIC FOR A VEST?? IT WORKS OUT GREAT , SINCE THE DATES ARE CLOSE TOGETHER. I AM GOING TO ORGANIZE MY VARIOUS HOLIDAY STUFF THAT I WEAR INTO ONE STORAGE BAG SO I CAN FIND IT. AS USUAL, THAT ARE PCS HERE/THERE.
