Find yourself looking at any wedding registries lately? How about using that registry as inspiration for a unique, handmade wedding gift: a challah cover that coordinates with the couple’s china pattern? The cover can become a highlight of the couple’s Shabbat and holiday table decor, covering the two loaves of challah bread, for years.
Start with the china pattern and consider the couple’s personalities to choose the cover fabric, lining, and trim. We’ve put together written instructions as well as a video tutorial that shows you how much to buy and how to put it all together.
Because I like online shopping even when I’m not actually buying anything, I had some fun putting together a few examples to get your creative imagination flowing:
I found the brocade and lining fabric at Mood and the trim at Fabric.com.
The velvet and toile fabrics were at Fabric.com and the braided tassel fringe at M & J Trimming.
The materials for the blue dinnerware at the top of the post appeared on Fabric.com.
