Talya chose a stunning purple dupioni that fringes black. Then we played with lots of fabrics to find complimentary colors for it, using her favorite colors. We created a wide band of several silk fabrics, including a navy silk organdy. She loves hydrangeas, so I embroidered hydrangeas on the middle stripe. Since it is in her parsha that God asks Abraham where he is, and Abraham answered “Hineini”, that’s what she wanted on her atarah. Also, because in her parsha God tells Abraham that he will make his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky, Talya wanted stars on her atarah. The atarah and corners are all one color on top of another color fabric.
