HALLOWEEN Table topper TUTORIAL PART 1
I am so excited for this to be my first ever TUTORIAL! I hope my explanations are easy to understand and my pictures are helpful in making this supper cute and easy table topper. This is the first of many tutorials I have lined up with some super cute and easy projects...
HALLOWEEN CATHEDRAL WINDOW PROJECT
There are 3 options of items you can make with this "Cathedral window" pattern: Table runner, baby blanket, or table topper. Fabric needed for each of these projects is a charm squares which are 5"x5", cut pieces, these come in packs, or you can cut them yourself. To see what you need for each project, see part 2.
The following is for a square table topper but the process is the same in what every you choose to make.
I layed out my fabric on a thick cardboard board or any portable surface to can move from counter to sewing machine, little tip I learned which made it easier to keep my order straight.
Continue sewing all the charms on row 1 and row 2 together, creating a chain that you will leave uncut.
Once you have sewn both rows together, remove from machine, DON'T CUT TO SEPERATE ROWS... Make sure you mark with little post its, row 1 and 2 and top and bottom.
this is the end of part 1, PART 2 will contain how to attach your leaf shapes to make your window and finish off your table topper!
