I am happy today, I made my biscornu!! Yes I did!!
I have to say it has not been very easy... I chose an easy well what looked easy design to do for my first one just so I could understand how it all fits together.
The design was awful for me, looks simple but it took me forever to get it right. I miss counted, stitched on the wrong lines and unpicked it loads of times.
Here is how it all started off..
I then cut it out.. even this I thought I messed up but after a little panic realized it was fine.
Stitching it together started off kind of ok.. finding the middle and believing I found the middle to start at was tricky as I kept doubting myself.
I started to stitch and could not decide which way round the stitches went! I unpicked again, a few times. After a while I got into the swing of it... the corners were a little tough as I had to twist my hand and tuck in the fabric and stitch it!! But some hoe I managed :)
I am really thrilled.. over the moon as I has stressed over this for ages thinking I could not make it.
Now I have made it I dont understand its purpose? Jon says its like a pin cushion.. so do people make lots of these all different ones just like pin cushions?
Oooh yes my amazing sheep has a name now...
I was looking at it and then the name popped in my head... Thank You everyone or all your happy name suggestions, I loved all of them :)
The name of my sheep is.....
But of course it would be! Seriously it just sounds and feels right... :)
Ok off to do some stitching!
Smiles to you all :)
