DetailsQuick, cute, and fun to do, Bobbie Watts's beautiful biscornu can teach the embroiderer a whole range of needlecraft skills. This amazing little eight-sided pillow gets its name from a French word meaning 'quirky.' It can be used as a pincushion, ornament, scissor fob, sachet, or just about anything you can think to do with a tiny cushion. A basic biscornu is composed of two fabric squares that are stacked, with the top square askew, and then sewn together. Step-by-step instructions, photographs, and charts will guide you through the variety of embroidery techniques and embellishments that Bobbie used for her 9 designs: Renaissance, Bright Gem, Orange Gem, Rosebuds, Green Garden, Blue Pearls, Stripes of Pink, Crimson Flower, and Variegated Lattice.

- Great tutorial on making biscornus
I love this book. It contains clear, easy-to-understand instructions along with color photos on making a biscornu. It also has a section that shows how to do the "specialty" stitches used in some of the designs. There are several different designs and I love them all! If you've never made a biscornu, this book is for you.
