Most arpilleras are typically constructed from simple materials such as burlap and colorful pieces of fabric stitched and embroidered together in applique style to form flat images of buildings, city streets, and landscapes. Many also include three-dimensional elements, such as small dolls stitched atop the fabric. Arpilleras can also include more three-dimensional elements by using pieces of tin to serve as pots and pans, matchsticks for broom handles, and parts of plastic pill casings as bowls.
