I got a lot more done on Chuppa/Mandap on Friday. There's more but these are the photos I have of the Star of David part.
Hard fabric to work with but lovely!
It's a great pale gold color.
To do the Star I referenced my scale drawing for the width of the strips, then cut them out. Then I hemmed them all along the lengths.
Then I pinned them down after doing some fancy a squared, b squared, c square maths to make sure I was getting equilateral triangles. Pythagoras go!
Then I painstakingly sewed the whole thing down by machine. Hours and hours and hours.
I finished the tips of the star later by hand because I didn't want to flub them up.
Hand for scale, this thing is HUGE!
Near the end of the day the sun came out and made it look shiny and beautiful.
This is gonna be great. Soon, the tree!
