Bunny Biscornu

Quick gift! A friend is learning how to do cross-stitch and borrowed one of my needleminders to keep organized. Obviously I wanted my needleminder back... so I made this biscornu (eight sided pillow, pincushion) for her to put her needles in instead. I also put some extra needles in so in case she loses or breaks one she won't be struggling on what to do about it! (Not pictured.)

Original bunny side pattern is from the book Biscornus et Pique-Aiguilles with some modifications by me. First: The original pattern is just one solid color. Second: made the bunny ears longer. Third: no french knots, can't stand them.

The rainbow side is a pattern by "Jeanne Dansby". Unfortunately googling her name only brought me Pinterest results and some flickr galleries with one image? I'm not sure what's up with that. I used rainbow thread for it but in either case it's a solid single color pattern originally.

My proudest finish for this biscornu is the center beads! I'm pretty sure I grabbed them from a Michaels or Joanns years ago. They have all the right colors!
