How do you get the knots really secure and what knot do you use? Like I said in my post, there are certain effects you can't get on a sewn one and I would like to try some ideas I have for different looks. Any advice would be appreciated. Also, how do you minimized that lumpy look at the waist? BTW love your banner, did you make it yourself?

Thanks bunches,
