Turns out the Figure–8 knot from The Arco Book of Useful Knots is both useful and pretty. However, this pillow was annoying. Not the knot tying. Stuffing the "cord" was UH-NOY-ING. It took forever.
1 pair of wool tweed pants cut into four 4½–in. strips (the length of each leg)
That's it. Cut 'em. Sew 'em together. Stuff 'em. Tie 'em. I don't have any measurements because I totally winged it. I did double the tube when tying the knot. I also hand–tacked the turns on the back because someone will invariably try to untie it.
I worked on iteration #2 and ended up throwing the whole mess away. Stuffing 8 yards of fabric tube STINKS. I have a plan, though.
Are you working on something that is driving you crazy? Do tell.
