Felted Geodes with Lynda

Felted Geodes from Lynda's private collection.

At this month's meeting, Lynda showed us how to make a felted geode that can be used as a pin cushion. Present : Lynda, Joann, Michele, and Brenda.

The moment of truth! After rubbing and rolling our geodes for over an hour, we were all excited to see the treasure inside. Here are our geodes cut open at the end of the night. We actually had to go out to our cars in the parking lot to cut them open with a knife on a cutting board. We didn't want to be arrested for bringing a knife into the public library! The Library was closing so we hastily lined these up on a heat register in the lobby at closing time to get this photo.

Here's a close-up of Michele's felted geode .... Wonder what's inside?

Inside of Michele's felted geode. Pretty neat!

These geodes are amazing. Other geodes I've seen are more concentric circles, but I like yours and Lynda's better. What technique did you use? Is there a pattern/video available? Thanks.
