A Biscornu Fob
I finished my free pattern for the sampler as a mini biscornu to be used as a scissor fob.
For the biscornu I made 2 changes to the pattern. Instead of using 3012 DMC for the border, I used the Thread Gatherer SNC066, Granite. I then added a back stitch all around the square right up against the cross stitched border using 517 DMC. I used this outline to sew the 2 biscornu sides together.
Finally, I did not stitch the centre eyelet as it would have been covered up by the button.
I used a blue pearl shank button, available at Gitta's. It looks so cute, like a pearl resting in an oyster.
