Sugar Skull Patch

Sugar SkullDia de los Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday in which people remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family members who have passed away.  A familiar site of the holiday is the bright and colorful sugar skulls, which represent a departed soul.  It's really a beautiful holiday and I've really loved creating my own version of a sugar skull.

This project uses felt, embroidery floss and scrapbook embellishments.  It's a perfect project for kids or beginners who wants to make something fun and different, plus learn how to sew 4 different decorative stitches.  The finished result is something that can embellish another project, using it as a patch or sew it on a pillow or even frame it as lovely hand crafted artwork.

Please note, if you're going to use it as a patch, like me, I recommend using wool felt so it's sturdier and will last longer.  It's a little more expensive to use than regular craft felt but, fortunately, you don't need to much.
