A Biscornu for March

Design: From 2010 Pattern-a-Day Cross Stitch Calendar (Monday 1st March)
Materials: Unknown 28-count evenweave from Polstitches grab bag; Madeira silks 0514 10 and 1407 12; gold glass seed beads from a broken necklace; gold filigree buttons; white ribbon; soft toy stuffing

I only used the central part of the design and then stitched a border of beads on the front. The reverse is just a circle in the centre and a repeat of the circle motif with beads at the corners, then my name and the date.

  1. Hi! Your biscornus are coming along nicely, well done!
    Well, I’ve finally managed to make one, you can see it on my blog. I had started it in Nov.2009, but just now finished it. The colours were appealing, but the stitching was too fiddly. I made the other side in 2 colours, so much quicker!

  2. Thank you, Ana Luisa. 🙂
