Happy Mexican napkins
So after a few days of sketching tiny doodles I stitched up these napkins. I bought a set of 12 cotton napkins at Bed Bath and Beyond for 9.99. They're sturdy and perfect for embroidery, and feel almost like twill. And yes, for some reason I imagine all Mexican food to have skinny little legs and smiley faces... :)
Ever had a tamale? I had to use my imagination to embroider a lump of masa and a corn shuck... :) And the words above are a silly joke my dad always tells us... click on the picture to read the next line!
I had to Google this expression to make sure I got the spelling right... here's what we say in my house when we eat too much chile and have steam coming out of our ears... :)
Lastly, here is Mr. Quesadilla, complete with embroidered cheese oozing out from the edges. Mmm... ever had a quesadilla made with 2 corn tortillas and cheddar cheese? I'm hungry now...
