Use an old rotary blade and a square ruler to get straight edges and nice corners. I’m Angela from My Three Sons and I was a mechanical engineer in my life before kids.Really an engineer to the core, I’m all about optimized processes and well-utilized materials.I tried to figure out the best way to make the elusive cathedral window block.So I’ll share some things I found for getting nice points and neat windows.And they are a perfect showcase for your favorite charm pack.
We’re going to make two pillows here – most efficient use of materials and all.
Besides, once you get going on these fun windows, you’ll want to make a ton!
I especially hope you give them a try if cathedral windows are new to you.
Find a washable glue stick – or go out and grab a Sewline glue pen. It goes on blue so you can see where it is, then dries clear. DO NOT skip these first steps all together and make 9″ fabric squares to start off.
Raw points will show in the end and your hard work will be a big, fraying mess.
Second, folding both edges square helped me get the best finish and the little raw bit at the edge right now is completely covered by the time we get to the last step. Then fold your square in half both directions, pressing a crease along each center line.
