Cinco De mayo Fiesta Challenge

For this challenge, simply take one to three photo(s)  of this challenge theme
and upload it into the proper folder at our Yahoogroups site.

If you do NOT put your name on the photo in the yahoogroups site, 
I can NOT label it here, 

and you will NOT be eligible to win.

The easiest way to include your name
is to rename your photo with your name
before uploading it to yahoo.

All photos will be added to our website at a later date.


Prize!  The Rebozo from Susan K.

Hitty Freddy would like to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  (May 5th- celebration of Mexican heritage)

All of the Hittys are invited!

A fiesta is always a good excuse for fun, music, dancing, great food, and piñatas!

Decide how your Hittys will celebrate and gather or make appropriate accessories and props

To show your Hittys enjoying a Fiesta!

 Please place your photo(s) (a maximum of 3 different scenes)

with your name in the title

in the Fiesta Photo Album,

and write a note to the list, explaining your photo(s).

If you cannot upload photos to the album,

send it/them as attachment(s) and make sure you put Fiesta and your name in the email subject.

There are several resources listed below.

Have fun! Ole!


Perhaps your Hitty would like a wee origami doll:
(Sylvia suggest that you color or use highlighters for the dress part, make it a solid colour or decorate)

Or a clothespin dancing doll (maybe you could even adapt the coffee filter costume for Hitty?)

or a donkey piñata:

(you may wish to enlarge the template just a bit for Hitty… maybe 136%)


Hot pepper pinata


Or a dancing skirt:
(ruffled skirt by Holly in our files)

With an easy peasant blouse:

Another option for a peasant blouse is to use Sara Cole’s Simple Dress pattern
and cut the dress and the sleeves shorter:

Or a Huipil
with a woven gathered skirt

Or a tiny set of maracas made from beads and toothpicks or dowels

or some tacos:
