See that button there in the middle of my Jigsaw biscornu? I recently had someone ask me a question as to how I did it, so I thought I’d post the answer here.
This is the chart for the motif on the button:
This design should be stitched over one on a piece of the same fabric as used for the biscornu and using 1 strand of a coordinating colour of thread. The centre stitch is a full cross stitch, the others can be half crosses.
There’s some information on over-one stitching on this page here –
To finish it off as a cover button, you can have a look at the tutorials on these sites –
- Ashley Hackshaw – Fabric Covered Buttons (A Tutorial)
- So Sew Easy – How to make fabric covered buttons
There are also instructions on making a biscornu here –
When others have done such a great job putting together all this fantastic information, I don’t believe that’s necessary for me to go back to the beginning and do it myself too! I’d be interested to know what others think of this approach.
I think I might need to make a Stitching Dictionary too to keep these links together and organised!
