Jealous Cat

the past few days,I made these cat collars with cotton fabric.

Two was for my boyfriend's cats,choco and moky. I stitched a bells on them because they love it and also I embroidered their names.I hope they like it ^^

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 ^^

I'm sick....¡_¡

Yeah, this time I have a terrible flu that make me feel like my brain is dripping through my nose >_< ,argh.

Anyways, I can't stay in bed then I made this wallet, embroidery by hand.

It's a fox running (or something like that ^^)

And i made this cell case too....but it turned out kinda simplethe black fabric was cheap but inadequate for this purpose

Maybe I should buy more of this buttons, they look good as eyes!
My head hurts...I hope you have a good day!!

Gift wrapping ideas

Why buy a expensives boxes or paper bags to wrap a gift this Christmas when you can make it more cheaper and customizable? If you're short of money, this can be a good option, and will be more appreciated for do it with your own hands! ^^

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 start sewing one side.....

....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

Day of the Death

Today is the day of the death, a festivity full of color and flavors where the souls of the children "visit" their relatives the night of the november 1st and the others do it in the next night.In those days, people put an altar with elements that have meaning and purpose but specially, the food that was favorite of our dead.

This time I visited a little town near my city called Tepotzotlán

They put many altars, mostly made for the children of elementary school.
I loved this colorful sugar skull!!
and this tiny altar (there was many of them)
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...¡_¡
In the cementary, people clean the graves and their purpose is stay the night and eat tipical food in honor of their deads. It's a way to share love with them.
Note:this photo was taken in mixquic, another place near the city and I took it from this site. You can read a great description of the celebration in this site.
Finally (uuuf) this is a photo from the exposition entrance.The full moon looks beautiful *_*
I hope you have enjoyed this post n_n
