"Sweetheart Roses"...
 

BISCORNU SET Have you ever wanted to know the secrets of Beautiful Finishing? Learn Lisa’s expert finishing secrets with Thea’s three different "Sweetheart Roses Biscornu" designs! Biscornu is a French word meaning ‘odd shape’ and they are all the rage in your Needlework world. In this leaflet, Lisa shows you three different biscornu, from large to small, so you have excellent photos and easy instructions for all your future biscornu finishing. There are two Accessory Packs in different colourways, and each contains enough materials to stitch a beautiful 15 Sided Biscornu, a smaller 6 Sided Biscornu, and a tiny 2 Sided Biscornu Fob in two colourways! Stitched in either Violet/Green or Rose/Gold, you have enough Perle Cottons for the Hardanger squares, gorgeous overdyed silks, silk ribbon, matching silk flosses, sparkling beads, pearl oval beads for the 5 corners, 2 Heirloom Pearl Buttons for both larger Biscornus and 2 Tiny buttons for the tiny Biscornu. Included is easy way to make simple cording! See how easy Beautiful Finishing really is!

The first method uses 15 equal sized squares of stitched linen. 10 pieces are stitched with the same motif. 5 pieces forms the top and the other 5 pieces forms the bottom. The other 5 pieces are stitched with a contrasting motif, a Hardanger filling stitch. You will learn how to back these Hardanger squares with contrasting fabric to really make your 15 sided Biscornu look beautiful!

The second finishing method shows you how to make a Six Sided Biscornu. The first two sides are for the top and bottom. They are larger than the other 4 pieces. The final 4 pieces are stitched with a contrasting motif. In this case you will be stitching the Hardanger motif contained in the leaflet.
