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
