FRIDAY OCTOBER 21, 1988

scene included blue water in
a shiny polyester, felt ani-
mals, and a rainbow of satin.
Choose a fairly heavy fabric
for the background and a fair-
ly light one for the lining
The background should be a
strong fabric because the ap-
pliques must be sewn onto it.
But you should also remem-
ber not to make the entire
chuppah too heavy, since it
has to be held up during the
ceremony. Both pieces should
be the full size of the chup-
pah. And don't forget to pro-
vide a way to attach the
canopy to poles; you can
make ties from the base
fabric, or you can attach
metal or wooden hooks.
A word about poles. Who-
ever would have ordinarily
provided the chuppah for
your wedding — rabbi, syna-
gogue, caterer, hotel or florist
— will probably let you use
their poles. If not, you can
buy pine or fir "rounds"
(dowels) at a lumberyard. The
rounds should be at least 1
inch in diameter.
When you put up the chup-
pah, friends should hold the
poles steady, but it is best if
the ends are long enough to
rest on the floor. In a pinch,
you can use broomsticks for
poles. However, these are too
short to rest on the ground,
and your friends may find it
tiring to hold them aloft dur-
ing the ceremony.
If you are making an appli-
que picture, be creative in
your use of patterned fabrics.
We made rolling hills with
green and white gingham
checks. We used two different
sizes of checks to provide the
feeling of distance, The larger
checks served as the grassy
knoll in the foreground, while
the smaller checks were the
hills on the horizon.
Cut out paper patterns for
the pieces of your picture in
advance. From your scale
drawing you will know how
large to make each piece.
When guests arrive at the
bee, you can hand out pattern
pieces, material and pins.

Decide in advance how the
edges of each piece should be
finished. If they will require
seam binding or lining, be
sure to leave 5/8 inch bias. If
your applique pieces are not
symmetrical (as is likely in a
pictorial representation), re-
member to place the pattern
on the fabric so that the
figure faces the same direc-
tion as in your drawing. If the
appliques are not lined, put
the pattern on the right side
of the material.
If a figure is to be lined and
made from two pieces of the
same material, cut the two
pieces together, with right
sides facing each other. If the
lining is a different fabric,
place the lining on top of the
applique material, right sides
facing, before cutting.
An alternative finish is a
machine overcast stitch with
thread in the same color as
the cloth, or in a contrasting
color to highlight. Felt does
not require a finish. At
the bee, make sure to have
enough scissors, pins, needles
and workspace for all your
guests. Depending on the pat-
tern and materials, you may
need more than one sewing
machine.
On the wedding day, your
friends will be able to point to
their own stitchery as they
celebrate with the bride and
groom. And you will be able
to point to your good friends
who have contributed to the
happy occasion. ❑
