Geometric Line Laundry
|One day Bob came home with the suggestion we try geometric line
laundry. He had found a web site of Polyhedras. We have made several including a
compound of two cubes, a compound of cube and octahedron, and a Pentagrammic
Antiprisim. We started with a simple one: a compound of two tetrahedra or the
Stella Octangula. Some need internal structure in the form of mesh or netting to
keep their shape. The Stella does not. We made the paper model first. This
always helps me keep track of where I am during the sewing process. It also
helped us decide what colors went where.
Down load both the instruction file and the photograph file, both in PDF format. A new window will open for each.
If you want more polyhedra pieces on your laundry line, do a Google search for polyhedra.
