As I write this, my thoughts are filled with the just-finished festival season and a new collection of holiday memories: a chilly Rosh Hoshanah Tashlich ceremony at Manhattan’s East River, a quiet Yom Kippur, and Sukkot’s scents of etrog and myrtle.
Even as I hold on to fresh memories of these autumn festivals, my mind is starting to get excited about plans for Hanukkah gift giving. In my family, consensus is growing for a holiday of handmade gifts, and I am ready to go.
It’s in that spirit that I’m releasing this latest Sew Jewish pattern for a doll size kippah, a little touch of tradition for kids and other doll lovers.
For Home Sewists and Indiepreneurs
I’ve been using this pattern myself since last autumn for the doll kippah and tallit sets I sell on Etsy. As the big holiday gifting season opens, I thought I’d make it available for readers who sew Judaica for themselves as well as for fellow indiepreneurs with small craft businesses.
While crafting a small tallit is pretty straightforward, getting the size and shape of the kippah right can take some time . Having a ready-made pattern just makes it a lot faster and easier. And more fun.
This little kippah is easy to sew, and you can probably make it using small fabric pieces you have on hand.
