This pincushion was made in the Cathedral Windows pattern. I recently finished a quilt in this pattern and made myself a pincushion with the leftover fabric. It turned out to be my favorite pincushion.....EVER! It's portable and has different areas in which to store separate sewing items. Due to the construction, four pockets are formed in which I can keep most of my necessary handwork notions in one spot.
One picture shows how I use mine. There is a pocket that I use for a pair of small scissors, another pocket for yarn needles, an area for pins, an area for safety pins, etc. It measures 4.75" on each side and is stuffed with polyester polyfil.
Included with the pincushion is an card for gifting. It is blank on one side for a cheery message from you and information on the opposite side that states the following, "This pincushion is handmade in the Cathedral Windows quilt design. This particular pattern starts with two -- 10-1/2" x 10-1/2" squares of white fabric. They are then folded, origami style into the shaped of a smaller square that will accommodate one colorful 3-1/2" square piece of fabric (the window). The window is hand stitched into it's frame. Entire quilts are made from this design, completely hand stitched and can take anywhere from a year or more to complete. It is certainly a "labor of love".
Gift ideas: give to a quilter or sewer, perfect for small apartments or dorm rooms, ideal for travel. Create a gift bag with this pincushion, a small pair of scissors, a package of straight pins, several packages of different sized needles and safety pins, and a seam ripper.
