1st pillow, originally uploaded by ELTORO215.

Getting crafty!

I made my first EL TORO pillow the other day. I've been wanting to do it for a while and I'm happy how it turned out, although this wasnt my first idea. I wanted to do 10x10 pillows that's going to be silkscreened with the Guadalupe graphic, but unfortunately the green fabric was to thin and it didn't hold any of the ink at all. It was very frustrating. My gf steered me into this direction where i could do hand embelishment all over the pillow and also making it a die cut rather than a boring square pillow. I like how it turned out and I already started another one. "Dia de los muertos" is right around the corner and I'm excited. If you are interested in purchasing pillows, I will be putting more details when it gets closer to the holiday. Keep checking here for more updates.
