Biscornu exchange

Here is a small biscornu for a nice exchange!

A Hug Will Do Pinkeep

This is my first attempt at a pinkeep finish, and my first time following one of the classes here – it won’t be the last time I do either, either :o)

I was very pleased at how the finished article came out – the picture isn’t very good because it’s a scan (my camera charger is missing!). In “real life” the edges are much more crisp!

I used cream dupion as the backing fabric, foamcore for the stiffening, a pale pink lace for the edging, and cream, pale green, silver and some more of the lace for the extravagant bow! I omitted the pins because I have a small niece who is fascinated by my basket of “smalls” – so maybe in eight or nine years I can finish this as intended!


Biscornu freebies

I was just doing a search in response to a request for biscornu freebies on a BB I visit and I found these two great sites, with loads of free biscornu patterns:

Aurelle – 14 designs
MissT – scroll down a bit – there are 3 pages of designs, including several biscornus

I thought these might be useful for anyone wishing to have a go at making their first biscornu, as the designs are quite small.  If you need instructions on how to make one, there are links on the Tutorial Links page
