I recently discovered a biscornu pattern on Pinterest, and I couldn’t resist making one. Apparently biscornu means “odd” in French. They certainly are odd shaped. They’re typically used as a pincushion or ornament/decoration.
Here it is finished from the top:
And side view:
And here’s a progress photo so you can see what the top looked like before I began sewing the pieces together.
I did a personal swap with @Lynx2Lancer, and she loves hummingbirds. She originally requested I make her a stuffed hummingbird, which I did. But I had to add the biscornu as an extra.
Here’s the hummingbird I made her:
The only thing missing is the beak. It’s supposed to be made with a toothpick colored black. I was concerned that the toothpick would either break or snag on the other items included in the swap package, and she agreed to add one herself when it arrived.
