Israeli-Style “Frik” Kippah

I looked everywhere on the web for an Israeli-style “Frik” kippah pattern, and couldn’t find one, so I found a pattern that was close enough to what I wanted and modified it. The picture below is how it turned out, and I am so happy, and my husband is so happy. I thought, If I am looking for such a pattern, there must be others, so I decided I would post it for anyone else wanting to make their own.

Latest Sewing Project

My niece’s first birthday is coming up this week, and I took on the task of making her a rag doll. While I was at it, I made a doll for Naomi.  It was a fun project.  I love sewing and making little things like this.

The dolls are now besties as you can see by the photo, but unfortunately, they will be separated like their owners until the next family get together.  Naomi’s doll is Flora (left), and Bella’s doll is Violette (right).
