Biscornu for Edgar!



This biscornu was sent to Edgar as part of the Make A Wish exchange board. He wanted a biscornu stitched in fall colors. I think this one fits the bill! The design is from Workbasket - Quaker Evens (October). It's stitched on 28ct R&R Creek Bed Brown using Needle Necessities Woodland Fantasy floss. I added seed beads when stitching the back to the front and the button are made from shells (they are kind of copper colored and coordinately nicely with the thread colors). The back side is modified so that I could personalize it.
