    Default Thought I'd share

    My third son received his first prayer book last week, and I made him a cover for it that was presented to him together with his new book.

    I made it out of blue velvet, cotton, corduroy, and satin. It is a "tree of life", a symbol special in the Jewish tradition, and dh and I wrote a blessing that will be laminated and added to the book sleeve.

    These pictures show it almost finished. I beaded an olive branch for the dove to hold (made out of material left over from my wedding dress), and embroidered his name in Hebrew on the cover. I will save the cover and make a wall hanging for him and his bride when the time comes, and embroider her name on the other side.

    This was my first time doing applique, and I really enjoyed myself. I'll be better about using double sided fusible next time to avoid the bunching up that I found happened without it.

    Flat


    Front cover (Hebrew is read from right to left, so the book opens "backwards"

    Thanks, mamas. I'm very pleased with how it came out. Now on to the next one for my oldest son (probably going to be doing something with the 7 species of Israel).
