Cinco de Mayo Challenge


Te Amo Mucho.

I am a member of the Etsy OWLS street team. This team has provided me with support, laughs, and constructive criticism for almost 2 years. One of the main reasons I joined an Etsy team was to keep my creativity in motion. Our team has a monthly challenge, and when I find the time, I always enjoy creating a piece specifically for a challenge. This month's challenge was a Cinco de Mayo challenge. It was kind of a spur of the moment entry for me. The piece had to be somehow related to Mexico. I have been having a lot of fun making snappy purses and I found the perfect Frida Kahlo fabric to use. I'm not quite sure what we get if we win the challenge, but I am happy I entered this one. If you feel like taking a peek at the other entries and checking out the team blog click here.


This particular cut of fabric also reminds me of a song my dad plays... can you guess what song I am talking about?

The only song that comes to mind is one about a bluebird on my shoulder. That purse if so cute.
