And finish the fabric bags I mentioned in a previous post. I filled them with some candies.
these bags are for an orphanage's children. My aunt told me about them and she's organizing a toy's donation with her friends. But what kind of Christmas would be without candies? When I was a child, the candies were one of the best gifts I had received. Hope they like this little present ^^.
In other news, I'm going to travel for vacations with my family and I'll be back in january 6th, so this is a little good bye!
I can only wish you a MERRY Christmas and hope you have a nice time with your family and beloved persons! n_n

Very detailed ^^
Few steps over, there was a lots of piñatas wich is a clay container filled with candies and fruits. Is decorated with cardboard and paper of many colors. The tradition says the piñata must be a seven-pointed star wich represent the seven capital sins and the stick for break it is the "power of God". Well...now the piñatas have different forms like bugs, famous tv characters, cars,etc.
I liked this colorful piñata
And this one
later the nigh falls and the "most bigger christmas tree in the world" was switching-on (or so they said)
Sure it was huge *_*
there was a lot of people!
Was a really nice walk!

I made one with ribbon for Minimiu, my cat who goes crazy with bells.She seems to like it n_n
but somebody wasn't happy....
I didn't made one for her (Pelos) because she's always rubbing on the dirty earth and besides is very naughty!! Maybe later, if she behaves. ¬¬x
Have a good day ^^

Cut a piece of fabric, I use jute this time.It can be as bigger as you want but it's better for small gifts. Fold it in half (this will be the size of the bag)
....and then the other side...
you can cut the border like this:
Finally tie it with a strip of the same fabric or thick thread
and that's it!.Easy n_n
Soon more ideas

This time I visited a little town near my city called Tepotzotlán
They put many altars, mostly made for the children of elementary school.
Is said that you must guide the souls of your deads with candles and cempasuchitl flowers. They put fruits, food, photos, sugar skulls,pan de muerto (a bread with bone's shape)..even toys! if the altar is a for a child...¡_¡
