Las Gorditas are ready for your next trip! These little cuties are just so cute and chubby – sure to hold all of your stuff while you travel the world. Scraps from Embroidered Mexican Dresses are re-purposed and sewn completely by hand to make these fully lined bags with zip closures in super fun colors. I use the solid scraps to line these guys and to help cushion your treasures.
Each bag is 8″ x 5″ x 5″ – generously sized but they will fold flat when you get done with them! I use a very forgiving interfacing in these to keep them soft.
Some things 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. I have yet to see one that is perfectly centered on the fabric. 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’s inexpensive and very cool to wear because it’s thin. If you don’t like surprises, please message me for exact color availability before your purchase!
