Merida Fobcornu by Mattsma Merida Fobcornu by Mattsma
I invented a new word by combining "fob" and "biscornu", hence the FOBCORNU!

As some of you realize (and those that don't please pay attention as this is very important information), when a stitcher is about to embark upon an EPIC stitching project it is only right and just to purchase a special pair of scissors to celebrate this undertaking.

These scissors are called "Devon" and can be lovingly purchased by clicking the link-poo here --> www.123stitch.com/item/Kelmsco…

This elegant pair of scissors are for the Princesses Patterns, the first being Merida.  A conversation with Magical525 suggested a fob that would color match each princess as Magical525 disapproves of my scissor purchasing prowess but does support more stitching and agrees that each princess should have her own fob.  She went out of her way to create a rounded fob and a biscornu fob (fobcornu for those who care to make use of the trendy new word) AND give it out for free for those who really need a matching fob or fobcornu to go with the new scissors you just purchased in order to continue onward with your beautiful princess pattern.

You may find said free pattern here --> magicalquilts.blogspot.com/201…

Fob a Month - June - Mucha princesses by Magical525  this is the rounded fob which looks as lovely as the fobcornu :love:

Original art for the princesses can be viewed in Hannah-Alexander's gallery and the patterns for the princesses (Belle, Rapunzel and Merida) may be purchased at pinkythepink's etsy store here -->www.etsy.com/listing/235031592…

Remember!  Mattsma says it is perfectly alright to have a shiny new pair of scissors for every EPIC project....Magical525 has made and continues to make a fob a month so you can ornament your lovely new scissors every time :D

How fancy with the fob!

I just keep my scissors on a clippy lanyard. Then I can wear them around my neck while working and not leave them laying about the place. They liked to slip between the cushions of my mom's couch especially!

When I was flying down to New Mexico I wished I had the necklace to clip on to!  My scissors dropped between the seat and the wall of the plane so I had to wait until everyone got off the plane to get them!  Next time I WILL be prepared!

That's the spirit!

Although once I did needlework on a break at work and forgot I was wearing my scissors and wore them while working for awhile until someone asked about them...:ashamed:

It's right up there with "bobbinate" which I believe Pinky came up with?  We need to start keeping track of our words and make a stitcher's dictionary :D

:D  Thank you!  Magical recommended (strongly as she is against buying new scissors for each new project ha ha) I get/make a pretty basket to put my fobs in, so if I were to make one fobcornu and a rounded fob in each color for each pattern and then make the other fobs she does monthly I would need a pretty big basket, but it would be full of pretty things right?
