Cathedral Window Pin cushion sewing tutorial

This beautiful technique can be used in many different ways from full size quilts to pin cushions today i am going to show you how to make this into a pin cushion as it looks absolutely adorable in this way

For this tutorial you will need 3 different fabrics

1 solid fabric and two fun  contrasting cotton fabrics

I chose to do white fabric as it give its a nice clean edge but it does look beautiful in any colour you choose (refer to the colour wheel when choosing contrasting colours)

Measurements for this pattern can easily be customized as your first measurement will dictate the second measurements

The solid fabric will be your largest piece measuring at 10″ x 10″

from here you will cut 4 more squares measuring 4 1/4″     make 1 of those squares the contrasting fabric (the fabric you want to see peeking through)

Please refer to the video for a full tutorial as its a little difficult to understand which photos

Now if you dont want it to be this size you can pretty much make the solid piece of fabric any size you wish and the 4 other pieces of fabric size will be determined once you iron your solid piece of fabric so its very easy to make this into any size you wish and use it in any of your projects!

If you make this pin cushion i would love to see it so please share at my instagram twitter or facebook all @charmedbyashley

Cut out two Get the Pattern here!  Cut so the stretch is from thumb to thumb

Fold up the bottom 1/2 to hem the wrists, use a Zig Zag stitch

Tac the end of the elastic at one end, place it above your hem line, using your zig zag stitch sew down the elastic while pulling it tight to stretch it to the end of the glove as shown

By stretching the elastic is allows the glove to gather on its own and will help keep the cold air out

fold the glove right sides together as shown and pin/clip around the edges, sew around the glove to close it up, not necessary to sew the folded edge, back stitch a bunch at the wrist part as their will be more stress from being pulled on and off

and thats about it! snip the corner between the fingers and the thumb being sure not to slice the stitches and clip around the finger tips and thumb to help the fabric round out once flipped

Great scrap buster and i dont feel so bad if my kids loose them!
