"make" a mola p.1

Animal Mola

Kuna women create beautiful molas. Drawing a design, basting, cutting, and sewing are the basic steps used to make a mola. Molas are layers of colorful cotton fabric. They may have two layers of color or many layers of different colors. The more layers of color, the more complicated the mola.
