Fellow stitchers, confess! Is there anything you started collecting after falling in love with this craft? Cute bobbins? Scissors? Thread? Well, I guess collecting thread is a common habit. But as for the “accessories”... personally, I'm becoming more and more of a pincushion lover.

The funny thing is that I don't even have that many needles or pins to store in the pincushions. More like, I just like the process of making them, you know? And when I have these pretties at my workplace, it just creates that kind of cozy atmosphere! So, today we are going to learn to make one of such pincushions which goes by the name “Biscornu”.
