Ojo de Dios: Weave a spiritual piece to your home

-------------------------   WEAVING AN OJO DE DIOS HUICHOL   -------------------------

About a year ago I found a video that show how to weave a basic ojo de Dios, I have seen this pieces in several souvenirs shops in Mexico but I never thought I was going to be able to make one.  For some months I reviewed tons of videos and put together all the tips I found useful before creating my own piece. 

Went to the local market and bought the cheapest yarn I found to later realize that it wasnt a great idea :D I used several sticks and decided that the ones for the fajitas were good enough.

After a year and a bunch of yarn I wanted to share the knowledge and get rid of some of the yarn I had so I invited some friends over and we make some Ojo de Dios (God's eye)  We had a good time!
