Embroidered Mexican Dresses handmade into cheerful zip pouches:
Happy, Happy, Happy! These just make me smile every time I dig for lipstick. Hey, it’s Texas, we wear a lot of lipstick!
Sweet zip pouches for all your storage needs. These are made from Hand Embroidered Mexican dresses and shirts and are fully lined in fun colors. Nothing too matchy matchy. I am trying not to waste a bit of the fabric from these clothes so I piece the scraps together for the linings. They do have a little bit of interfacing to help them hold their shape. Each pouch will come with a Mexican Milagro or charm on the zipper pull. New polyester zippers in a rainbow of colors.
Some good stuff to know about these dresses: If you have never seen an inexpensive embroidered Mexican dress up close then let me let you in on a few things: This embroidery is done by hand. Sometimes you can see the marks where they drafted the pattern onto the fabric before stitching it. Totally normal. There are often stray pieces of floss visible under the fabric. Normal. There are sometimes tiny spots of fabric dye or coloring on the fabrics around the embroidered areas. Also normal. It’s really thin cotton. It pills a little bit. It’s inexpensive and very cool to wear but not the most durable cotton on the market. These fabrics will show some signs of wear.
This style is 7″ x 5.25″ tall. Milagros are assorted. Please know that while color choices are available, the actual item shipped might not be exactly like the one shown. These will vary.
