Felted Geode Pin Cushion
At Conversations-in-Cloth this month, our resident felter and fiber artist taught us how to make felted geodes that can be used for pin cushions. She brought a great pile of hand-dyed wool that was heaped up on the center table. We picked the colores we liked, layers them, and "worked" it into a ball.
This is my geode put back together. Just like real geodes, it has kind of a humble shell. The most exciting part of the evening was when we cut them open at the end of the night to reveal the patterns and colors within. Ooohh! Ahhh!
