Sugar Skull Bag, Finished

Design and Pattern

Wool, all Felted

After Embroidery

The Sugar Skull bag I was working on is finished and up for sale. 

The bag itself is made from 100% wool, which formed the perfect canvas upon which to work. The design is securely needle felted on, and is also cut from 100% wool. It was then hand-embroidered with faux pearls, silk ribbon, and beads from Bazaar Del Mundo, in Old Town San Diego. The skulls are magnesite and the cross is Cloisonné. 

The handles are covered in hand-woven textiles from Guatemala, also picked up from a trip to Bazaar Del Mundo. Not only does the fabric add a beautiful contrast to the skull design, but it also makes the bag comfortable to wear, as wool won't be touching your skin.

The bag itself is 12" wide and 16" tall, 21" tall with the handles. It's small enough to be used everyday, but it holds enough to be a fun tote for an outing.
