The Cathedral Window Pillow is one of those projects that looks incredibly advanced and somewhat unattainable for a beginner. The big secret? It’s not!! Designer Kim Niedzwiecki offers a simple, easy-to-follow tutorial for how to make one of these beauties in an afternoon. You can use a variety of coordinating fabrics as she did, or make one with a single pattern depending on your desired end result. This is Kim’s first pattern for us and we’re so excited! Looking forward to all that comes next;).
Tip: try scaling down the proportions to make the most fabulous little pin cushion you’ll ever have!
