**I am the only seller of original designs of Biscofleur and Biscobud Biscornu pincushions on Etsy - custom orders are most welcome either for traditional Blackwork or contemporary designs.**
Biscornu loosely translates from the French to mean 'horned' or 'odd-shaped', and refers to the 8 corners due to the way that this type of pin cushion is sewn up.
I've designed this to be suitable for those wishing to try their hand at making this type of pin cushion, and it is suitable for intermediary stitchers or enthusiastic beginners.
The inspiration for this design came from various Spanish/Moorish tiles from the 16th Century - it was from these tiles that embroidery called Spanishwork and later Blackwork was based upon in the Tudor period.
You will need:
Aida fabric in your chosen count number
1 skein of colored stranded thread
size 26 needle
2 glass 8mm pearls of your color choice
The finished Biscornu will measure approx 7cm across and 3cm in depth if using #18 count Aida - it will be larger if using a lower count.
I have also made a video tutorial demonstrating how to make up a Biscornu once you have finished stitching the pattern, and the link is included in the making-up instructions.
