My First Biscornu

December 11, 2010

So my son loves ladybugs.  He asked me to stitch him a ladybug ornament for the tree this year.  So we settled on a chart…a biscornu chart.  Just to add a little more challenge, he wanted a ladybug felt fabric for the back of it.  The biscornu was easier to stitch than I expected, just time consuming.  My finger is sore from shoving the needle through the felt.  I think it looks great!

    You are not the first person I have seen do a “Biscornu.” What makes it a “biscornu?” I would look at it and say “stuffed ornament.”

    It’s cute btw….

      according to Wikipedia, the name is derived from a French adjective meaning skewed, quirky or irregular.

        Interesting. Did you son like the finish? I take it he likes ladybugs like you like acorns.

        I have sore finger syndrome as well from putting the fringe on Zoe’s stocking. Pulling 4 strands of yarn through already done needlepoint canvas is hard.
