Faux Cathedral Window Pincushion - Day 14 on Pins and Needles

Sorry for the break in blogging.  I had surgery almost 2 weeks ago and as much as I tried to get ahead it was just not possible.

Today I bring you a lovely little pincushion design that is fast and easy to make. The tutorial calls for 8 different fabrics but I made mine using only 2 fabrics for a more traditional cathedral window block look.

The tutorial calls for machine sewing the turned edges but I chose to hand stitch mine along with adding a shank button on top and a regular 4 hole button on the bottom.  This little pincushion is fast and fun to make and a great way to use up scraps of fabric from other projects.

Hope you enjoy this tutorial and I hope to keep bringing you some really fun projects every week.  If you drop by leave a comment and share any pincushion ideas you may have.
