- Thick paper, any color. I usually use 9" X 12" watercolor paper sold in pads of 10 sheets.
- Scraps of huipil fabric
- Fabric glue
- Cut out squares from your huipil fabric. Mine are usually about 1 1/2 cm in length, but they can be any size you want. You can also vary the size; for example, include a few larger squares that are the size of four smaller ones.
- Use a ruler to outline the shape of the rectangle you want to fill in with squares.
- Line up the squares, one column and one row first so you can be sure to line up your next columns and rows to your first ones.
- Attach with fabric glue.
