Last Saturday night a friend I used to work with threw herself her own 50th birthday. This lady is TOTALLY into skulls. She has them everywhere (even a few tatoos) and of course, because she designed her own birthday cake, she made it skulls. A bit strange, but then, it takes all kinds to make the world go 'round, right? This cake was even complete with a pump that allowed red "juice" (read as: blood) to pour down the sides of the cake from the "mother skull" at the top! She hand made every one of those white chocolate skulls and then had to paint in the dark chocolate into the eye sockets. Labor intensive, I'd say. But, hey, you only turn 50 once, right?
So, for a birthday present I made her this bag, complete with skull fabric. I'm not sure that she really liked it. I don't think the skulls were scary enough! Excuse the sideways photo. For some reason, blogger kept turning my photo on its side no matter what I did. You get the idea anyway, don't you?
