A "biscornu" shape is an 8-angle mini cushion obtained by assembling two cross stitched squares together. These pieces are very popular among stitchers because they are a lot of fun to do and can be used as pin-cushions, door ornaments, holiday ornaments and much more. They also make great gifts for friend stitchers.
