"LA CATRINA" "La Catrina" is the iconic symbol for the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). She is an 18 inch tall all fabric "stump" doll (no legs), that is glued to a wooden base. She is designed in the style of a traditional Calaveras (skeleton figure).
This pattern has complete instructions (with illustrations) for making the entire doll, including how to make the fabric skull & skeleton hands by "needle-sculpting" with thread. Also included are instructions for the hat and all accessories.
