I was making a felt geode for the person I am "secret santa-ing" and i like it so much I am going to keep it or hang it on the tree. it fits in the palm of my hand. I am soooooooooooooo bad. But I will make her some thing else nice.

This might be a stupid question, but what exactly is a geode?

a geode is a lumpy hollow rock looking thing that when cracked opened has amazing crystal formatins in them, this is my version of a felt geode. duh... it's supposed to be "arty" I dye and felt the spheres myself...I will get better at this.

Are you my SS? That is really so unique! You said "felt" but it looks like felted wool - so, do you make your own felt? And are you filling the geode with SS goodies? Very, very nice!

If I were your secret santa I couldn't tell you. and yes it is a hand dyed and felted sphere filled with bedazzled beads etc. I added some dyed locks and now it's REALLY scumptious I think. Take a look and tell me what you think:

You can't blame me for asking!
Those are beautiful! I know that this is a stretch, but since it is filled with surprises, it sort of reminds me of the candles that were popular in the early 90's - as they burned, they revealed jewels and charms, etc.
I know someone who makes felted purses - she says it is "easy", but too me, it seems quite difficult, but always beautiful!
Do you sell these or just make them as a hobby. Do you make geodes filled with cat toys?

I guess they are art and when I have a stash I will try a show... I do other things including garments and bags. They would be bad cat toys because they have beads and bells etc sewn in them.

but...


if you want a white felted mouse private just message me your address and I will be glad to send you one. FREE. You can rub it in catnip if your cat likes catnip.
