A Blackwork Christmas Ornament Biscornu

If you read this blog regularly, you will know that I love miniature stitching especially biscornu, and that I also love blackwork and beads. So what better way to indulge my passion than to design something that combines all three? The rest of the world may not want to be thinking about Christmas yet, but we crafters need to get ahead, so I thought I would design a biscornu with a Christmas theme, that could be used as a hanging ornament or just as a Christmas decoration.

I’ve used red and green for this biscornu – sometimes it’s nice to have a change from traditional black for doing blackwork, and I thought his combination looked suitable ‘Christmasy’. I also wanted to add a touch of shine, so I thought the gold beads would achieve this nicely.

Here’s a close-up of the stitching so you can see the detail better:

It’s quite quick to stitch, so it would be great as a present for someone, or maybe a last minute Christmas decoration if you want something in a hurry.

I’m pleased with this little biscornu and I’m thinking I may design some other blackwork designs with a Christmas theme, although at the moment I’m working on a more traditional blackwork pattern. You can find the pattern here in my Etsy shop.

I hope all your Christmas preparations are coming on well!
