Purple Collage

I hand-sewed this collage of huipiles from places like Quetzaltenango, Nahuala, and Tactic. The backing is fleece. One of my favorite things about huipil designs is the use of animals, and this one includes two deer and a bat. I love the bat! The pink flower in the upper left is appliqued over the purple piece, so it adds a bit of texture.

For this piece I chose huipiles with purple, hot pink, and various shades of green.

The design is 8" X 10" and the border is approx. 1.5 cm.

$53 plus $2 shipping. Please leave a comment with your email address if interested.
