Sydney’s dog tallit

Sydney loves dogs and wanted her tallit scene to depict lots of different breeds of dogs – mainly her family’s and extended family’s dogs – in a beautiful field of wildflowers, while she sat under a tree reading. We ended up embroidering 18 different dogs, lots of flowers, appliqued mountains,….

To make the grass, we chose 2 different green prints, cut them like blades of grass, and then layered them alternately. To make the dogs look like they were “in” the grass, we then cut smaller pieces to sew in front of the dogs’ feet.
