Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh was named after teddy belonging to A.A. Milne's son, Christopher Robin Milne, who in turn inspired the character of Pooh's best friend!

I stitched that lovely design from Anchor for my baby's room. Really hope baby will love it when he grows up! :)
For this design i used 14 count white Aida measuring 8x6in, Anchor stranded cotton in red, yellow, orange, lilac and dark brow for backstitch.

What is biscornu and biscornu basics

A biscornu is a small, 8-sided, stuffed ornamental pincushion, usually made out of Aida cloth or linen. Embroidery or cross-stitch is used to decorate the top and bottom of the cushion. A button is typically secured in the center of the cushion to give a small depression on the top. Beads, tassels and other objects can decorate the biscornu. They are typically able to fit in the palm of your hand. The name is derived from a French adjective, meaning skewed, quirky or irregular.

Nice and understandable biscornu basics are here:
