Simple Cushion Tie Closure

Last year when I made a bunch of cushions around Christmastime I started making the closures a bit differently.  I don’t mind long ties, but I find it hard to make them look nice when they inevitably get untied.  What I like about my new way is that I get a nice, secure knot every time.

One one side is a little fabric tab and on the other are two short ties.  One tie goes through the tab and with one half knot you’re good to go.

The added bonus is that a little kid could easily tie this one up herself.

    That is GREAT! I definitely need to try this — it’s a very neat and elegant finish.

    I like the slot tabs you added, great idea. And the resulting knot looks like a little bow tie!🙂
