PANAMA Molitas are smaller versions of MOLAS.
This one is called TOUCAN and I purchased it from a lovely lady in Panama.

This Cotton APPLIQUE panel would look great in a quilt, bag, or cushion. Or frame it as a colorful picture. Please note that the actual bird is turquoise , not royal blue as in the photo.

SIZE : 8" x 10"
COST : $12.75

The KUNA native women create these cotton appliques using exquisite needlework and brilliant colors.
Cut-work or reverse appliqué is combined with regular appliqué. Finished with fine embroidery details. All hand sewn.

Reverse appliqué involves cutting into a background fabric to expose the color of the underneath fabric. Regular appliqué is fabric sewn on top.

The Kuna women wear the larger mola panels sewn onto their blouses.

CARE - hand wash
