You don’t need an embroidery machine to create your own challah cover with traditional Hebrew text. If your machine can sew straight stitches and simple zigzag stitches, you can create this cover. The Hebrew letters spell out the classic challah cover phrase, “Shabbat v’yom tov,” which means “Shabbat and holiday.”

The cover also features a pomegranate, a fruit deeply associated with Jewish life.

Finished size: 22” x 18”

The pattern is a PDF file, so you can print the pattern as many times as you like.
