Even more wee...

I had to go smaller. I just couldn't help myself. I had this little rectangular scrap of aida cloth and it spoke to me. It said, "I, too. I, too. I, too, could be a biscornu!". Weird how that aida cloth speaks in rhyme, huh?

Of course, the teensiest biscornu had to be a fob for my teensiest scissors. And for those not in the know (*ahem*Becka*ahem*) ;-)

fob 1 (fŏb) Pronunciation Key

1. A small pocket at the front waistline of a man's trousers or in the front of a vest, used especially to hold a watch.
1. A short chain or ribbon attached to a pocket watch and worn hanging in front of the vest or waist.
2. An ornament or seal attached to such a chain or ribbon.

I also couldn't help but notice that at this size a biscornu would make a really neat pendant for a necklace. It's also on 14ct aida. The backstitched square around the design is 15 stitches on each side.

I found that it helped to paint some white glue on all the raw edges. When I made my first one, the raw edges were awfully ravelly. This might not be a problem with linen though. It did make a huge difference when stitching this one together.
