The last of the Oldies

I've been waiting until closer to Passover to post these. I'm not sure if I ever posted them before but as I explained I am trying to archive and condense all of my photos. I needed to get these off of Webshots. These are two of three table runners I made. This one is mine and is one of a kind! The outer fabric is 6 pointed stars, the paths are matzo fabric, the green represents spring & parsley & the purple the cups of wine (I know, there really should have been 4 but I didn't have enough fabric). These are all themes represented in the Passover Seder. Unfortunately, I wasn't thinking when I took the closeup. It is a terrible mismatched seam!

This one is a twin. I always make things in 3's. I make one for me and one for each girl. Theirs have Jerusalem fabric with the matzo paths. It looks a bit like eggs on a plate huh!

These are two of the matzo kippot (head covering males and some females wear in synagogue) I made. I made about 40 of these. A woman offered me $10.00 each if I made her 8 in about 4 days. Her family wore them at their Seder! The really cute thing is I had her son in my Hebrew School class. I gave one to each of the boys that year. He wears his still! At the High Holidays, there he is wearing his matzo kippot!


By the time I finished all of these kippot, I had perfected the the process and made 60 for Mrs. S's wedding, I realized that you can buy a stamp and fabric ink and stamp them just like the custom made "store bought" ones. The kippot for their wedding were stamped with their names and the date of the wedding.

The matzo fabric is priceless. Where in the world did you find it? It just goes to show that whatever you are interested in, someone has printed fabric about it.

You still making those kippot? (I could use a pair....)

I never thought of where those things come from! What's the difference between a yarmulke (which I probably mangled spelling!) and the kippot? Asked the goy. =)
