Another Mermaid pillow and DOTD ATC

Yesterday afternoon I started making another small fabric mermaid pillow with some beading. I finished my under the sea diva mermaid this morning before I took my mother out shopping.

Yesterday I also played around with my Day of the Dead fabric. I made an ATC that I added a colorful braid trim around the edges. I then added bone skull beads that I won in an ebay auction several years ago. I know the Mexican DOTD celebration is November 1-2, but I will be participating in a swap, and wanted to see what I could come up with. I don't know why, but I love skull beads.

Love your mermaid for sure! I've never done a DOTD swap or at least I don't think I have...I have never bought stuff for it either, but yours is a great job! Diann
