Tetraspinner ! a 3 D rotating puzzle to make

The Tetraspinner (officially called a Cyclic Tetrahedron…) is an amazing puzzle that, when rotated creates a Kaleidoscope effect with the diamond shaped patterns coming together to form an illusion.

It can be cycled to show 4 different patterns.  Each pattern has been designed by Sue Duffy specially for the Tetraspinner.

To see a large version of the Tetraspinner in action watch this video..Tetraspinner – youtube

The fabric pattern below is called Blueberry Pie.  All 4 designs are shown, as well as 2 side views.

 

The TETRASPINNER Kit contains clearly photographed instructions and a fabric panel of your choice.  There are 5 to choose from!  Approximate cost is $22 AUD / $17 USD

Extra panels can be purchased from $9 AUD / $7 USD

The pattern, kit and extra panels can be purchased from 2 Sew Textiles at their Etsy Shop
