CraftSanity Shop Update: Day of the Dead Skull Prints to Embroider

by jennifer


As I mentioned in my most recent newspaper column, I took the year off from making handmade Halloween costumes this year, but I didn’t stop crafting.

I stayed up late, but not too late, Thursday night embroidering a Day of the Dead skull print. I drew the design, then carved it into linoleum and printed it on cotton flower sack tea towel fabric from my podcast sponsor ACS Home and Work using my etching press.

The skull patch fits inside a 6 1/2 x 8″ rectangle and can be stitched and then displayed as framed art or sewn onto a tote bag or tea towel. I embroidered my patch and then hand-stitched it to a full tea towel. I just listed the patches in my Etsy shop for crafty folks to stitch at home. You can can check them out here.

Great show guys! You’ve already geaind at least one follower.On Chinese pronounciation, you didn’t quite hit the nail on the head with gui feng . If you’re seriously interested in the correct pronounciation I’d be willing to show you how to pronounce it via skype. Makes my skin crawl when people are trying to say Yu Jing
