Inspirations Calendar | January Project
18th December 2020
The New Year is about to begin, and what is one thing that almost everyone starts thinking about in January? That’s right! Getting organised! That’s why the first project in the 2021 calendar couldn’t be more appropriate.
Tied in Knots by Maria Rita Faleri first appeared in Inspirations issue #103. These highly textured Italian tassels made with gorgeous linen threads make perfect key fobs to ensure you’ll get yourself organised and never misplace your keys again.
This fascinating project will introduce you to the unusual technique of knotting threads, with the addition of pretty beads and knotted loops to create a beautiful and practical item. It won’t take you long to master several tassels employing three unique knots; capuchin, Turk’s head and onion.
Whether you attach the finished project to a bunch of keys, a blind pull, or even just display them in a bowl, Tied in Knots is the perfect project to start a brand new year.
