The Scissor Case I made for the Tutorial two days ago is actually a part of a set that I am making. And tonight I finished the later part, a biscornu made with the same fabric and threads and with a pattern by the same designer. I love this set so much. It turned out a lot better than I had pictured it in my head. The fabric and thread really work well together and I adore the patterns.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves. The colors are (off course) prettier in person. I like the hearts on the top corners of the biscornu. They really add a nice touch to it.

This set is a gift for a friend at work. When she saw the scissor case I did for my friend Tracy for Christmas, she wanted one for herself but not the same pattern. She really liked this biscornu that I made once for Sandy, Tracy’s sister so I decided to use ‘Wildflower Hearts’ for the Scissor Case as ‘Four Little Hearts’ is too small to use for a scissor case big enough for the scissors (pictured) that she wanted to keep in the case. But since she liked Sandy’s biscornu, and the pattern, so much, I had to stitch one of those also 🙂 So tomorrow when I go into work I am giving her this set. We set up a trade. She makes beautiful jewelry and she made me the necklace I am wearing on this picture below. I have wanted my name on a necklace forever, and when she asked me to stitch for her and suggested that she would make me something in return, I jumped at the chance and asked her to make that particular necklace for me. Needless to say, I LOVE it and hardly ever take it off since the day I got it 🙂
