Quick, 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.

Instructions are clear as are the patterns. The supplies are listed along with the directions and the stitches used are in the back. Includes suggestions. Another excellent book from Leisure Arts.
