Felted Biscornu Pincushion

In Stitch magazine I saw a lovely pincushion called Biscornu. It is done with cross stitch and if you google it, you can find dozens of interesting variations. As I am not into cross stitching but needed a new pincushion, I thought why not do one with felt. I had a prefelted piece on the shelf, so cut it out and started stitching. It is quite easy, but looks very interesting when finished.
I added a few stitches on top and stuffed it with some old nylons. The nylons work much better as stuffing cause the needles won´t disappear inside the cushion like they tend to do with stuffing for softies.
