After the bookmark exchange went kind of bad I wasn’t sure I should join anymore exchanges on craftbubble, but then I saw the biscornu group and just had to join.I had never actually made a biscornu before, but making one in 2010 has made it on to my New Years Resolution’s list so it was about time.
A biscornu is an 8-sided ornamental cushion, usually a pincushion, but can also be decorations, key fobs, scent sachets, you name it. It’s made from two square pieced of aida/evenweave/linen which have to be the exact same size. For instruction on how to make your very own Biscornu have a look here and here.
The groups first exchange was a ‘Summer’ themed biscornu, and the send out date was on the 3rd so I sent mine off then. However the member who sent out to me was very considerate and sent her’s off early in case the UAE post was as slow as usual. Well they weren’t slow at all, today I received my biscornu from dpoll.
It’s really pretty with butterflies and a butterfly button, here you can see for your self.
Now I just hope my recipient get’s her’s quickly so I can show you a picture of the one I stitched. I can guarantee that there will be many more of those in the coming months, bitten by the biscornu bug.
