Knotted Seat Cushions
If you have the itch to stitch, but not from scratch, take this artisanal shortcut. Start with basic tufted cushions, and give them a bohemian upgrade with fluffy accents that mimic the look of quilt knots (the hand-tied bows that make our baby blanket so precious).
To create these denser, woolier versions, wind merino needlepoint yarn around the handle of a wooden spoon till it’s as thick as you’d like, tie it off in the center, and fluff the ends. (Remember making pom-poms as a kid?) Then sew them onto the cushion’s “dimples” or buttons.
