The Fuchsia Is Bright Biscornu


If you've never made a biscornu before, but would like to try, this is the project for you!

This pretty pin-cushion is the perfect gift for a stitcher, a garden-lover, or, scented with lavender or pot-pourri, any lady would love this to pop into her 'delicates' drawer!

With just a smattering of easy to work special stitches, you'll need one or two floral-colours of stranded floss (why not try silks for a touch of extravagance?), plus a green, and a metallic.  Add beads for a bit of extra dimension, and a charm if liked.

Full instructions are given for working the biscornu, as well as for making it up.  You don't need to be a 'sewer' to make a biscornu!

As the design is in a square, you could easily make this design into a matching needle-book, or a card, or even a box-top for a special gift!
