Do you love Dia de los Muertos? Then these tote bags are for you!
The colorful traditions surrounding Day of the Dead inspired me to create these drawings of two girls wearing Sugar Skull makeup and flowers in their hair. I worked on the Sugar Skull Girl illustrations for days before they were ready to put in my shop as prints, tote bags, T-shirts, I-phone cases and even a wall clock. I was so excited about them that I offered the drawings as free coloring pages too.
Of all the items I created, I really wanted a tote bag. I’ve never actually had my art printed on a bag before, and I wanted to see how it would feel toting my illustrations around on my shoulder. So I ordered two. The result. Really nice! The totes are hand sewn in America using durable poly poplin fabric. All seams and stress points are double stitched for durability. They are washable, feature my original artwork on both sides and a sturdy 1″ wide cotton webbing strap for comfortably carrying over your shoulder. They’re perfect as a big tote to carry all my stuff around in. I purchased the medium size, but they’re also available in smaller and larger sizes. You can see all my tote designs on my Society6 store. (Disclaimer; If you buy a tote I will receive a commission.)
What is Dia de los Muertos?
The English translation of “Dia de los Muertos” is “Day of the Dead”. During this traditional Mexican family and friends gather together to remember loved ones who have died. They build beautiful altars and decorate them with candles, flowers, traditional food, sugar skulls, and folk art. Women and children often wear flowers, especially marigolds, in their hair and paint their faces to look like a skull. To learn more check out this article: Things to Know about Dia de los Muertos.
What time is it? It’s sugar skull time! Available here for $30.
