I hope this is the right place for this kind of thing.  This is my first time here on this board and took a look at the little pictures and you guys are just incredible.  All true works of art therefore I'm hesitant to post here but here goes.
A friend of mine asked me to make her something to cover her "Shabbat hot plate".  Short explanation.  On the Sabbath she doesn't cook.  She prepares the Saturday lunch on Friday afternoon and puts it on a hot plate called a Shabbat platter and it cooks for around 24 hours.  The meal is traditionally beans, meat, wheat, chick peas.  Basically a very filling stew.  I was planning to make myself one but got sidetracked by other projects.  This is the first time I've done applique...what a nightmare.  That was hard!!!  But here are the fruits of my labors.  My friend promised me action pictures next week.

It is two pieces of rust colored fabric on that a woven polished cotton with Good Sabbath in Hebrew.
Here is the "stencils" I made from fonts from the computer.  Behind are the little plastic baskets of fabric that I chose from.

It has the quilt filling inside.  Another adventure in sewing.  I've learned alot from this project.
Thank you for looking.

Turned out so pretty! The fabrics you used on the alef bet are so perfect. Thank you for the idea of using the font from the PC to make stencils! Store that idea away for use later. Smiley

 Very cool!  I love things that are both decorative and useful, and this is both!  Great job on the applique, too , esp for the first time!  Smiley

Thank you Padester.  She asked for a simple cover for the pots in the hope to contain some of the cooking smells (that usually drive us crazy it smells so good) but I wanted to take it a step further and put some type of decoration on it.  I also forgot to mention that the thing is huge.  It is 1 meter by 80 centimeters. (39.37 inches by 31.50 inches)  Large enough to cover everything.  I sure hope she sends me the action pictures on Sunday.  Thank you again.

What a clever idea to keep Shabbat meals warm. I would have never thought of that...maybe its because I just eat leftovers on Saturday! Cheesy It turned out really well. I have made a few embroidered challah covers but i never thought to make stencils from fonts! Good idea. The finished product is much better than my kindergarten hebrew!!! I have to make one of these now...

Thank you Kalanit.  I hope you do make one.  I was going to embroider it but just didn't have the time to sit that long on it.  I haven't embroidered in such a long time I just knew it'd take me forever.  I also tried fabric paint but when it dried it practically disappeared so I tried the stencil route.  I just remembered that she didn't send me yet a picture of it. (her price for me making it)  Oh well.  Hope to get it before Passover.  Cheers.
