It's almost magic









<<< How this...











<<< ...Becomes this. A Biscornu!

Since the item we are exchanging next on the Tiny Treasures Exchange blog is a biscornu, I thought I best make a practice one first. This is my first biscornu and it won't be my last. It was fun making this little thing and the way the two squares became this 8 sided cushion was well....almost like magic!

I love that!!!! I have to make some kind of little gifts to take to a retreat this fall. That might be just the thing.

An addendum to my previous comment. I have spent over a half hour looking at stuff from links for the crossstitching stuff. I am intrigued and will be getting some crosstitching cloth really soon. I like the scissor fobs I saw. Just what I need, some more projects, lol. Thanks Myra!!

Beautifully stitched! Aren't these fun? I made my first one -- it DID seem like magic -- and now I'm hooked!

Myra, it's gorgeous!! What are the threads you used? I love the colours!

Oh wow Myra your biscornu is just lovely. I'll have to keep this in mind next time I get in the mood for some cross stitching. I can't imagine using these lovely little creations as a pin cushion. I would worry about ruining it.
