Biscornu finishing instructions

How to make this biscornu.

You will need:


Linen
DMC threads or any other threads of your choice
Lightweight interfacing
Fray check - if desired
Polyester stuffing
Swarovski crystal bead or any button or bead of your choice

More information regarding this biscornu can be found on my blog here 

 
Use a slip stitch, ensuring you line up the centre carefully  


You should have the same amount of straight stitches on each side
to match up perfectly, this ensures a perfectly shaped biscornu.

You are now ready to fill with stuffing, ensure you fill into the corners.
The biscornu is nearly finished and should now look like this.

You are now ready to put the finishing touches to your biscornu
Put a couple of stitches through the centre to pull the biscornu into shape
I attached the Swarovski crystal with fabric glue or you could use a small button 
or charm.  
I trimmed the other side with Swarovski crystals
Your biscornu is now finished!
Here is the matching pinkeep and box I made for a friend
Enjoy!
