Día de los Muertos

Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is primarily a Mexican holiday. The holiday focuses on gatherings to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died and takes place on November 1st and 2nd. Of course, like most other ethnic holidays, we all like to get in on the celebration.

Recently the hubster and I got this new CD by "Los Lonely Boys" ~ we are both fans and we loved the artwork on the cover. He liked it so much he asked me if I had any fabric similar to that to make him a new wallet. Did I tell you he really will only use my wallets anymore? He loves the funky look and the fact that they are much less bulky than a regular wallet.
Anyway I was happy to go on a quest to find just the right fabric. Julz and I actually found 3. There was a small, medium and large print so I got a yard of each. Made Richard his wallet and then decided I would see how much else I could get out of those three yards.
I got 6 wallets, 4 snappy bags, 2 clutch bags, a busy book, a travel pillow case, a children's screen bag and an adult screen bag ~ phew! And now they are all in my Etsy Shop.  Hop on over and check out the individual pics.

I had fun making them and I hope you will have fun using them. November 2nd is right around the corner ~ but if you are like me you'll use them anytime for year round fun!

HAHA that fabric is a hoot! You've been very productive - good job getting all those projects done and into your shop - that's a lot of work!
