Complete stitching pattern – you will have 15 squares of the same size with 3 different motives (stitch each motive 5 times).
I do not wash finished stitched items but you can do it in case f.e. it got dirty while you worked on it.
Make one row of back stitches around each square, stepping away from the pattern side 1 or 2 rows of threads (depending on your pattern visual structure).
If your fabric is not stiff enough it is recommended to attach a one-sided adhesive interlining (vlieseline) to the back side.
It is also recommended to do for the fabric with less tight stricture (Aida 11, 14).
Cut 15 squares of one-sided adhesive interlining equal to you pattern size, it should not overlap the back-stitched border.
Attach a one-sided adhesive interlining squares to you stitched biscornu sided from the back side with an iron.
Choose which motive will go on top, select all 5 squares of the same motive.
Fold canvas inside.
Thread the needle to the corner on one side and fasten the thread.
I assemble biscornus using two strands, you can read more about how to fasten strand on the fabric here.
Connect one side of the squares.
Connect one side of the 3rd square to the second side of the 2nd square.
Connect one side of the 4th square to the second side of the 3rd square.
Connect one side of the 5th square to the second side of the 4th square.
Finally connect 1st and 5th squares, closing the circle.
Our top is ready.
Now select 5 squares that will be the side part.
Attach two sides of the square to the 2 sides of different squares of the top.
Attach other 4 squares the same way, you will have the top part and the sides of the biscornu.
Now take the last 5 squares that will create a bottom part.
Attach them together the same way as the top (see above).
Start attaching the bottom part with the top and sides, placing squares in between the side row squares.
Leave 2 sides of the last square open for stuffing.
Stuff biscornu, paying attention to the corners.
Stitch up the last sides.
You can add 2 buttons or beads at the center of the biscornu (connecting top and bottom centers), tightening your biscornu a little bit.
That is it!
Happy stitching! 🙂
