  • $\begingroup$ I don't feel qualified to answer this - hence the comment only - but I would model the basic form using ordinary mesh, then get the cloth detail there with the texture - especially in the bump channel. Maybe the beads could be a particle system or an array. $\endgroup$ – Susan Apr 23 '20 at 11:08

You could begin with an extruded circle, then some bevels, some additional extrusions if necessary, and deform it a bit with the Proportional Editing option on. Then give it a Subdivision Surface modifier:

For the other side, duplicate and mirror your object. For the node, create a profile shape and a curve, use an Array and a Curve modifier to make the profile follow the curve, then apply the modifiers and again, rework a bit with the Proportional Editing so that it looks a bit more natural (needs to be improved of course). Give it a fabric texture:

  • $\begingroup$ still struggling with the extrusion in the image 2 and 3 , mine simply extruded the loop cuts straight up without the bent faces shown in yours $\endgroup$ – jugnu Apr 24 '20 at 14:24
  • $\begingroup$ actually what I've done is moving up several edge loops then beveling with ctrl B, but you could as well select faces and extrude up... $\endgroup$ – moonboots Apr 24 '20 at 14:28
