2 Finished Biscornu

The first one is from a french designer Tralala. I want to make some mini biscornu this year,
this one turned out very cute. I have just the "perfect button" for it as well. The button really enhances the whole piece. Stitched with 32 light sand Belfast. I added a few pearl beads in the front and on the bottom as well.

I wanted to experiment with the Clover Yo Yo gadgets. I picked the small Flower yo yo and it was very easy to use. The instruction are great. The instruction are in English, French, German and Spanish. I like the rose motif in Kesley's Grandma pitty poo chart, so I just use the chart to come up with this biscornu:

I should have put the design closer instead of so far apart. Here is the side view:

here is the front:

Great job! I tried the small circle yoyo and couldn't believe how small it was! I am not sure what I could use it for but what a great idea for the flower yoyo!

Gosh Anita,
These pieces are absolutely wonderful. I love the idea of putting a little yoyo in the centre of a biscornu and Kesley's Grandma's pitty poo is beautiful - so delicate.
Hope you and Michael are keeping well :>)
Hugs Angela
