My favorite designer always has some fun and interesting details she has me add to her creations, that's one of the reasons she's my favorite. Her projects are always interesting and fun to work on. Lately she has been on a Knotted Corner Pillow kick and I can see why. Knotted corners on pillows look so cute.
Follow along as I show how to make these knots.
Cut your pillow as you would for a basic pillow. You can find those instructions here: http://sew-passionate.blogspot.com/2011/12/how-to-sew-basic-pillow.html
You're going to need enough lip cord to go all around your pillow plus about 7" per corner.
You're also going to need a cording foot that is slightly smaller then your lip cord.
Always start lip cord at the center bottom of your pillow front. I just make a small clip in my fabric to mark the center bottom. Extend the cord 1 1/2" past the center point. This extra will be used to join the lip cord.
Stitch on top of the lip cord biting into the actual cord. Stop with your needle down when you get approx. 2" from the corner. Clip into the lip at 1 1/2" from the corner.
Tie a knot with the cord.
After you have the zipper and sides stitched together, go back and stitch diagonally across the corners. Be sure not to catch the knots in the stitching.
