Description:

For this swap you need to make a Biscornu. (posh pin cushion!)

You can sew, embroider or cross stitch the biscornu.

Chart/fabric/thread colours used is senders choice

The whole idea behind a biscornu is the actual shape and the dent made in the middle with a button or bead .... the shape and dent in the middle are a must!

You can make your biscornu no smaller than 30 stitches by 30 stitches which is approx 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches (size of the back stitched line around the outside of the biscornu). There is no maximum size ... you can go as big as you wish!

Have a look at this link so you can see what I'm on about!

This looks like fun. It's my first time making a Biscornu. I lov yours in the pic and was wondering what stitch did you use running along the seam-it really finishes it.

hld001 05/16/2011 #

I used back stitch around both sides then whip stitched it together.
If you look at this link it shows you how its done!
