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!
Be kind - Send the kind of package that you would love to get and would rate a 5 heart for!!
Extras - If you wish but not compulsory, as long as the biscornu is sent then that is brilliant!
Exciting? I think so! I love making biscornus!
NEWBIES welcome as you have to start somewhere like I did a few weeks ago!
Members only with 4.8 rating or above - no recent unexplained 1's or 3 either.
If you do not fit the requirements you will be removed from the exchange.
Please NO flakers. I will angel if I have the time. I know all who sign up will be lovely and send wonderful biscornus to your partner. Any problems please let me know, always happy to help.
P.S The biscornu in the picture is one I made for my son.
