Just like the mexicans honor their dead with colour and joy, I try to do the same to all the beautiful but forgotten crochet works I reuse in my pieces.

The skull composition is mostly made out of crochet doilies and other mixed materials, carefully handstiched to felt, layer on layer, and then to the pillow case itself. This is my work which I love doing.

The fabrics used for the pillow cases are chosen by me and to make sure that the final product is unique, the front and back are always in different colors and patterns and the decorative slider gives them that special detail.

Since I don´t own a sewing machine, The pillows are cut by me and then sewn by a seamstress.

It takes one day to make one of these pieces but each one is worth the time spend.

Pillow case characteristics:

Fabric: half panama
Invisible zipper enclosure with metal decorative skull slider
Dimensions: 42x42cm

Washing instructions:
Gentle hand wash with cold water
