All you’ll need to loop-de-loop your way to success is 2m of stretch fabric (like jersey), polyester fibre filling, thread to match your fabric, and the usual sewing machine and tools.

Check out this video from Homes To Love to learn how to make one of these cushions.

DIY IDEA: Celtic knot cushion - homes+


Homes To Love used a beautiful cement colour here, which I can see stacked up against different textured and sized grey pillows on a bed, or switch out for a brighter colour for a feature in the kids’ rooms!

Once you’ve finished your own knot cushion, make sure to upload a photo to your dashboard!
