Lucha Libre Pillowcase
I stitched this as a present for my brother, to (sort of) match the Carmencita pillowcase I made for my sister-in-law. I wanted to choose a "manly" subject, but have it be something that would definitely make him laugh, so I chose these funky Lucha Libre wrestlers from Sublime Stitching that crack me up...
The words in Spanish, say "los hombres no deben llorar", which happens to be the title of one of my favorite sappy telenovela songs. I guess the closest equivalent is "boys don't cry", which also happens to be one of my favorite Cure songs... :) All in all, I hope it brings a smile to his face (he is allowed to cry, of course - I just hope, not too often).
