Showcasing ~ Mini Biscornu Embroidery ~ Tutorial

I've been sewing for many, many years, but the thing is, one person can't know it all. There's always new, interesting facets of the hobby to explore and learn. Do you know what a biscornu is? Well, I didn't until today...

Learn how to make a mini biscornu pincushion. Tutorial by Sum of their Stories.

Julie, from Sum of their Stories, shows how to sew the embroidery to make a mini biscornu - a small, octagonal pincushion. There's a design sheet to download and follow, as well as a link to Julie's original tutorial on how to make the actual biscornu.

Julie's Mini Biscornu Embroidery was added to the Sewing Accessories link party. You might like to check out the following Pincushion Tutorials also from the Sewing Accessories linky...

  1. I must admit I did not know what a biscornu was. This is a pretty one.

  2. very nice I have made quite a few in hardanger one of which was a project in Stitch magazine

  3. I have seen several patterns for Biscornu over the years Pam, but have never yet got around to making one! One of these days :)

  4. I do know what it was, but didn't know what it was called!! I have a cute cross stitch pattern for one... but no tutorial to make the pincushion, so thanks to you, I now know how to make it! xx
