Sneak Peek at my Geekiest Craft So Far

This is officially the geekiest felt craft I've ever undertaken. So far, I've cut sixty small, but precise, geometric shapes out of different colours of felt, and lots of itty bitty little numbers.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Can you guess what I'm making?

If you're still wondering what these might be for, perhaps it will help if I specify that each felt piece is actually one face of a three dimensional shape. Before cutting these out of felt, I made some cardboard models to see how the pieces would fit together, and, more importantly, to ensure that all of the polyhedrons would finish at about the same size, despite their different shapes and number of sides. That turned out to be the trickiest part. Spacial perception is not my strong suit.

I leave these lying around to puzzle the cat

To round out the project, I'm making the far more popular (but less interesting) cube variation. This should leave no doubt as to what the collection will be.


  1. I think this is fab! You must have the patience of a saint but they're going to be brilliant sewn up :)

  2. Duuude. I am going to have to run an on-line game just to make you roll them. :)
