This is a sponsored craft tutorial in collaboration with SC Johnson. While at home I make sure the kids take off their shoes before they start running around and playing in the house. The less dirt I have to clean up, the better. The downside is that we go through a lot of socks! That’s…

I love unique pillows and love making them in mini versions because honestly, that is all I can sew. We recently did a mini makeover in our daughter’s bedroom and added a few DIY projects that included these knot type accent pillows to add texture. This is my third most favorite project so far, the second…

      Angie, please forgive me for butting in here. I understood you directions easily but some people may not have done as much sewing as you and I have and I thot maybe I could phrase things just a bit different.

      My reply to the requests for a video:

      You don’t need a video. Let’s go over the instructions with a few things stated just a little differently:
      Materials:
      – 1/3 yard of knit fabric (Make sure it has a good stretch)
      – Pillow stuffing
      – an empty wrapping paper roll
      – Sewing Machine, needle, thread
      – Dowel rod

      CUT AND SEW STRIPS OF KNIT FABRIC: strips should be 5 inches wide and 1 yard long. (Make two.) Lay the fabric out lengthwise, fold it over on itself (maintaining the 1 yard length, creating a 2 1/2 inch wide piece of fabric). (You must fold the right side of the fabric to the inside.)So you will be looking at the wrong side of the fabric when you sew it. It looks like a 5/8″ seam was sewn. (Please correct me if I’m wrong!) Sew the fabric down the 1 yard length. Turn the fabric inside out using the empty wrapping paper roll. (Use the dowel to push the end of the fabric tube inside of the wrapping paper roll from one end of the wrapping paper roll to the other end.) Bring the end of the fabric tube out of the paper roll and fold it backwards onto the wrapping paper roll — you will be turning the fabric tube right side out! Feed the whole fabric tube onto the paper roll. No need to sew the ends shut yet. That will be done after you have formed the knot. Now feed the stuffing into the wrapping paper roll and tamp it down with the dowel. When it is firm enough for you just remove the wrapping paper roll. Repeat this process with the other 5 inch by 1 yard strip of fabric.

      The process of forming the pillow is like the balloon animal tutorial. This type of knot is called Turk’s Head Knot but I have made a few adjustments to make it easier and faster.

      It took a few tries to understand the knot but at the end it was just as I imagined it would turn out.
      This is the image I used to make the knot pillow. To make the knot pillow, do exactly as the picture shows except you will be holding two fabric tubes together at the same time (ignore steps 9-11).
      Once you are into step 8, pull the remaining ends and make it tighter to form a ball. Push the fabric tube end inside a fabric tube end, about 1″ in, and sew the fabric tubes together.ReplyCancel

  • Sensitive Pamper Wipes sounds like a nice product. It’s great that it has sufficient moisture for preventing irritation.ReplyCancel

The day of the love is just days away, and I have yet to find a perfect Valentine’s day gift for my loved one. Guys are just so difficult to gift to, even after all these years together, sometimes I ran out of  gift ideas for him. I’m pretty sure they say the same about…

  • […] This awesome garland will be perfect for a bridal shower or a baby shower, prepare balloons of different shades, faux flowers and greenery, string like baker’s twine, hot glue and glue sticks. Tie a long piece of twine from the celling or wall, depending how long you want your garland. Then begin attaching filled balloons to the twine by tying them with a double the knot so the balloons will last longer. Attach plenty of balloons to fill the twine. Then begin hot gluing greenery stems to the twine in some areas of the balloon garland. Then hot glue a few of your favorite flowers stems in between the balloons. Keep reading the tutorial in the source. […]ReplyCancel
