4 kippahs using Hanukkah Nights fabric by Tara Reed for Riley Blake Designs

KIPPAH PATTERN

If you are looking for a kippah pattern, you’ve come to the right place. One of my most visited blog posts and YouTube videos is how to sew a kippah, also known as a yarmulke.

With the release of my second Hanukkah fabric line from Riley Blake Designs, Hanukkah Nights, I decided it was time to take the pattern up a notch.

I’VE COMBINED TWO OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: SEWING AND CRAFTING WITH MY CRICUT MAKER.

You can still get the kippah pattern instructions and template for free (with updated photos showing my new fabric collection). If you have a Cricut Maker and like to use it to cut fabric, I have a pattern for sale in my Etsy Shop.

If you’re passionate about crafting and want to share your creations with the world, you can open your own Etsy shop. To help you with pricing and budgeting, you can use the Etsy calculator.

Since each kippah uses 12 pieces of fabric, 6 for the outside and 6 for the lining, it’s a big time saver to let your Cricut Maker or other cutting machine that can cut fabric take care of the cutting so you can do the sewing!

In the video below I share tips on cutting directional fabric by hand with the template so you don’t have menorahs or other objects upside down on a man’s head. I also show you how to set up and cut the pieces using your machine.
