Aztec Skeletons fabric

What more could you want? Skeletons, tequila, flags, cactus, the iconic Aztec warrior carrying the Indian maiden... the Pyramid to the Sun, masked skeleton, sugar skulls, roping cowboy and even the Virgin of Guadalupe! This energetic pattern is large, so would be good for a tablecloth, curtains, pillows or to cover an ofrenda. If you focus on a vignette, then it could be sewn into a dynamic apron, tote bag or shirt.

Loteria is Mexico's beloved Bingo game which has been around for hundreds of years. In my ramblings through antique flea markets in Mexico over the past 20 years, I have occasionally come across very old loteria cards. Some were hand painted or etched on heavy cardboard - some painted on tin sheets. Many Mexican icons we associate with Old Mexico come from loteria cards.

Here, in a "tea dyed" background (right) to add a vintage feel, this 100% cotton is printed with classic loteria images shown as skeletons! The woman cowgirl, ballerina, musician, catrina, baker, bride, soldier, teacher and so on… delightfully detailed fabric to make all kinds of Day of the Dead crafts. Good enough quality to make pillow cases, curtains, place-mats or how about a shirt or vest to wear to a candlelight procession? This particular design would lend itself to quilting or use it for your ofrenda as a tablecloth. Make individual bean bags or sachets as party favors.

Glitter Skull & Flower Skull Fabric

This fabric is bold and the sugar skulls are extremely well detailed. Somehow, Alexander Henry has accented these fabrics with gold GLITTER. My glitter skull table cloth has washed up fine. Iron on back side if necessary. You will love this fabric! (Sorry -The Glitter does not show up in these photos. It is used to highlight the eyes and major feature lines!) Click on the links for a larger image.

Crafters will enjoy using glitter cloth for accent pillows, aprons, tote bags, napkins, children's clothing, altar decorations, book covers and scrap booking. The craft-challenged person can make a dazzling tablecloth!

Sugar Skull Rice Bag

The best way to thaw out a sugar skull fan is to use a colorful, practical, sugar skull rice bag!

What is a rice bag, you may ask? First, it’s an indispensable hot bag of rice that soothes sore muscles, warms cold toes and relaxes stressed shoulders. When sitting in a chair a rice bag can snuggle down onto your lower back and make you purr! Since rice bags are found piled up between your microwave, living room & bedroom, it’s nice that they are made from colorful interesting skull fabrics that reflect the personality of it’s user.

Our high quality, Japanese printed 100% cotton fabrics are perfect for rice bags. No need to pre-wash. They’re easy & take about 45 minutes to make!
