As promised the biscornu for the 4x4 hoop. The picture is the larger one, I did not test this size.




Colour#1 - stitches an outline - colour of your background material.

colour#2 - the circle in the middle where the button is placed - white in my case;

colour#3 - the heirloom stitch - white as well in mine;

colour#4 - the leaves

colour#5 - the flowers

colour#6 - the centre of the flowers

colour#7 - an optional outline if you want to make a square pincushion.



To make the pincushion in the picture:

Embroider two parts leaving out colour 7. Cut them out with a 6mm 1/4" seam allowance.

Place the corner of one at the centre of a side of the second part - the outline has a small mark at the point. Make a small cut to the stitched line at this point to make stitching easier. Sew them together either by hand or by machine leaving a small opening for turning and stuffing. Clip the corners after stitching and before turning.



You can make a square pincushion - skip colour 1 and stop after clour #6, place another square on top, right side down and stitch colour#7 - remove from the hoop, turn, stuff and sew the opening closed.



Leaving out colours 1 and 7 you could use the design on a 'needle book' or use it in any other way you like.

This new word, "biscornu", was totally new to me!
I had to look up the meaning, "A biscornu or 8-sided pillow is a great little finishing technique for square designs." "Biscornu is a French adjective that means 'that which has an irregular form, with projections' or 'complicated and bizarre.' "
Well, I LOVE IT!
Thank you for sharing and for opening my mind to something new!

It was new to me too until I saw one in Projects. I liked the shaped and wanted to make one myself, so I digitised this one.
