Had these three old ties that belonged to my hubby and father, so I made a challah cover out of them for Shabbos. Did the stitching in a rough and loose manner to keep it from being too formal. I mean it is made from ties.  Wink

What did you make the letters out of? Is that another tie?

Thanks so much everyone for the comments! Smiley

Yes, the letters are made from a purple silk tie, and then the two large strips are the other two ties. The satin is some scrap from the fabric store.

HSG, it's really cleaver. It's hard to tell what the lettering is in the photo.

For the lettering I used Heat Bond so the letters would be uber flat to the fabric. It worked!  Grin
