A number of years ago, I made my first experimental felt pyramid. Since I wrote up all the instructions at that time, I'm going to just send you there to see the details of how its done. However, I've got a couple of tips to add...
I decided not to use a stiff felt liner on all the faces of my current pyramid, only on the bottom. Now I wish that I had taken the time to add them to each face. See how it sort of sags? Live and learn.
On my original, I wish that I had added beadwork to the side faces before assembling. This time I did. At least that part turned out better, but it is partly the weight of these additions that caused the sagging!
Here are my process shots. Please visit the link above for the instructions, but remember to add the side decorations before assembling the sides!
