The affection and satisfaction of being able to do your own knot pillow, makes the final result even more special. To make this new decorating trend, you’re gonna need:
- Fabric (you can use mesh or tricoline)
- Silicone fiber
- Empty aluminum foil roll
First stretch your chosen fabric horizontally on a large table and cut 17 cm strips. Splice the strips to form 4 meters in length;
With the printed side of the fabric on the inside, secure the edges with pins to make the sewing step easier;
Sew in a straight line along the entire side of the fabric, closing even one of its ends;
With the piece sewn, it is time to prepare the piece to receive the silicone fiber. To do this, fit the empty aluminum foil roll onto the piece until the fabric is well wrinkled along the length of the paper roll;
With the empty aluminum foil roll firmly in place, place the siliconized fiber and push it with a large ruler. I repeat the process until the fabric is completely filled;
After the fabric is completely filled with silica fiber, remove the aluminum foil roll and sew the end;
To make the knot, take your fabric snake and make a loop with the end of about 25cm. Hold it tight and then make another loop on the opposite side so that you have two hoops, one on top of the other;
Crush the hoops in half as if making a bow;
With the rest of the cloth snake, loop it twice over the loop, as if you were going to tie it;
Finally, take the other end of the fabric snake and pass it through the loops of the loop and go molding the cushion in your hands.
