FINISHING
Twisted cord
: Cut 6 strands of A, 2 yds (180 cm) long. With both strands together hold one end and with someone holding other end, twist strands to the right until they begin to curl. Fold the 2 ends together and tie in a knot so they will not unravel. The strands will now twist themselves together. Adjust length if desired.
Sew cast on and cast off edges of hems to wrong side, matching eyelets. Sew top and bottom edges together matching stripes. Insert pillow form. Thread cord through eyelets as illustrated.
