Day 11: King David
I was going to do a basic forked branch slingshot, but Anna informed me that they didn't have those types of slingshots back then. Yes, she is my child. So I had to make a historically accurate one. Samuel tested it out a few times before I sewed the bead on, and yes, it really does work.
Day 12: Josiah finds the Law
I tried to make this one a little different than all the other scroll ornaments out there. I liked the idea of having a little bit of Hebrew writing on it, so I just googled "Hebrew font", and printed out an image I liked. I have no idea what it says.
Day 13: The Stump of Jesse
This is the symbol that the Jesse tree gets it's name from. The new shoot coming out of the stump of Jesse. I used a real branch for the stump, and a copper wire for the shoot, with a felt leaf glued on.
Day 14: Lion Laying Down with a Lamb
Since there are three sheep ornaments in the Jesse Tree, I wanted this one to be very different from the other sheep. These are two dimensional wood cutouts glued together, with minimal painting. The effect is peaceful and simple.
Day 15: Prince of Peace
This one was a little more time consuming than the others to make, but I really like it. I used a picture of a dove that someone had for sale on Etsy, as inspiration. I didn't do as much embroidery and I added the crown. I really like making little stuffed felt birds. I've made a cardinal and a duck that were very similar to this, before.
