Halloween Biscourno

This biscourno was made from a design by Plum Pudding Needleart named "4 Bats and A Cat".  It is a perfect square which is needed for a biscourno type finish.  I 4 cat head shaped buttons for a three dimensional look, and there is one on the back for the middle tie in.  I added halloween style cording and a halloween Moda fabric for the back. You can purchase this pattern on   It was great fun to stitch and this is my first biscourno finish.  Now I just have to find a perfect square for a thanksgiving design since I want to do this type of finish again!!

Pillow made from Discontinued Upholstery Sample Book

This pillow is larger than my dog Emma!  It was made by upholstery samples and finished on the back with a suede like cloth.  The two sides have coordinating trim with tassels.  This pillow will need to be kept away from Emma since she will pull all of the tassels off!
