Little pouch and little presents

I made this little pouch for my sister, who loves rabbits.

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

See you!

A little walk in the city

a few days ago I went to walk in the middle of the city, to a avenue called Reforma.In the mexican folklore, it's a tradition to put a "nacimiento" (literally Birth), made of different materials wich represent the Jesus birth .There were many of them, but this was my favorite.

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!

Busy days

Last friday, my boyfriend bought me these beautiful fabrics *_*. Now I'm thinking what can I do?

I was so happy because lately I had no money ¡_¡ . He has been a great support to me since I quit my job and always supported my "creative stages" jujuju. First was jewelry, then bookbinding, painting and sewing now ! (god, how much money have I spent?!).

But before I digress , I must finish some things, like this colorful scarf (the yarn is another gift from him ^^)

And the most important thing, these little fabric bags for some gifts that I'm planning to do

Gosh, my back is killing me! (mental note: get up every half hour to rest >_<)

My first patchwork

I just finished this patchwork furoshiki following this mairuru's tutorial. I've never did nothing with patchwork but I wanted do something and here is it.

But what is a furoshiki?
Is a square of fabric about 50-60 cms and can be used in many ways.I use it as a lunchbox and when I go to the grocery store for few things. Here an example:
Put the things you want to wrap on the furoshiki's center

Then do this

and the other side
and finally tie up the ends with double knot

Here a page with other examples.This is a great idea for use fabric instead of plastic! PLEASE try it!
Thanks Mairuru for this tutorial ^_^
Sorry if my english wasn't correct.
