Cathedral Windows De-mystified

So you’ve always admired the look of cathedral windows, but thought they were too difficult for you?

The 1 hour easy cathedral window takes you step by step on a fun journey through making your first window style, resulting in a stunning pincushion. Even if you’re a beginner sewist, you can make this!

Add that hygge quality to your sewing table with this adorable cathedral window style pincushion!

This Mini Cathedral Pinnie is the perfect way to begin your adventures with the cathedral window style of sewing. You will discover this method is much faster and easier than the traditional method, and uses much smaller pieces of fabric to begin with.

This pin cushion measures a tiny 3" x 3" x 1 1/2" (7.5 cm x 7.5 cm x 3.8 cm), and with boxed corners for a 3D effect, it's definitely the perfect gift or swap extra.

Full step by step colour graphics are included, so you'll feel confident to complete this as even a beginner sewist. Being so tiny, it's perfect to use up your precious fabric scraps, and is the perfect fit for your sewing space.
