New!~Cute little Just Nan Pin Cushions Ornaments!

While I am stitching my other preorders, I have also been making some cute little pin cushion ornaments from Just Nan designs. I stop making Biscornu for some years. Now once again, I picked up my needle and start working on some of them. It’s harder stitching /making these little pin cushions compared to the basic cross stitching skills.

What is a Biscornu??

~Biscornu is a French word which describes a quirky little cushion with 8 corners. However, some are also created in 15 sides, known as a 15 sides biscornu. A biscornu can be a pin cushion, a sachet, a fob, or an ornament. It can be any sizes as long as you start with 2 square pieces which are exactly the same size.

Isn’t this a cute little pin cushion for all seasons? This can be a great heirloom addition too. All hand stitched and hand sewn on. Make with lots of mill hill seed beads. Stitched on periwinkle 28ct. linen.

Also stitched on a 28ct linen with mill hill petite seed beads and dmc gold metallic floss, this is also another cute biscornu with detachable hanger. This is my another creation from Just nan designs. Back design of the biscornu is from another designer. I bring the two designs together and created them into a biscornu, adding a Lucite flower bead and little tiny pearls at four corners, center  stitched with clear Lucite tiny flower beads, turning this biscornu to a very special limited edition!
