Barbie Nightgown

30 Dec

In the summer I mentioned one of the mother-daughter projects on our list was to sew something. My daughter decided she wanted to make a nightgown for one of her Barbie dolls. I admit I probably would never have bought these, but she received three hand me down Barbies from my nieces and we do […]

Upshern ideas

17 Dec

What type of special things do you do for an upshern? That is if its your minhag or are invited to one. My niece recently made a fun set of tzitzit that would be a great project to do with an almost three year old or as a gift for the three year old. It […]

Malka Dubrawsky Fabric Sukkah Decoration

5 Sep

Aren’t these beautiful? And simple to make. These were made by Malka Dubrawsky with scraps from her somewhat new line of fabric, “A Stitch in Color” which is  based on her hand dyed fabric- I recommend you take a look at the fabrics they are based on as they are quite beautiful. What I like […]

From Lonely Sock to Sleeper Futon- A First Sewing Project

12 Aug

One of our summer projects has been learning how to sew. That is, my 5yo wanted to learn how to sew “for real.” At first I thought we would make some doll clothing out of socks but we decided to do furniture. First I suggested a simple couch but my daughter wanted to make “a […]

Hair Clips for Girls…and boys

Judaic Textile’s Red Carpet Treatment- Adina Gatt at the Oscars

26 Feb

I have long admired the work of friend and textile artist Adina Gatt and have enjoyed using her work for holidays and Shabbatot. I love her use of color and texture and how her work can look both traditional and modern at the same time. Her work is hand pieced and embroidered and you just […]

Crochet Flowers for Rosh Chodesh

26 Jan

A quick project to add detail for Rosh Chodesh school outfits. This is actually a pin intended to be pinned onto the required blue skirt for Rosh Chodesh. Some almost five year olds think that plain blue is not so pretty so we made a blue and pink flower pin to attach to solid blue […]

This sock books seemed meant for me

8 Sep

The other day I walked into my sib’s house and saw this book on the couch. I said something along the lines of “how did you find something so perfect?” Why? because everyone in the family knows how we make things out of socks and the projects in Socks Appeal: 15 Fun & Funky Friends Sewn […]
