This is the most fascinating craft work that I have come across so far. May be it’s the history behind it. Apparently, Dreamcatchers originated with the Ojibwe people (Native Americans), who wove these magical webs from willow hoops and sinew along with sacred attachments like beads and feathers. At night, the hole in the center only lets good dreams pass and bad dreams are trapped in the web, and dispelled at the first light of morning.
Talk about nightmares and this could be your savior from all those nightmares. I was so fascinated that I decided to make one for myself and see if it works! Unfortunately, I never remember my dreams.
Here I am sharing how I made my Dreamcatcher. If you too find it fascinating may be you could try making one for yourself.
All you need is:
1. A yarn of your choice
2. Crochet hook
4. 4-5 beads
5. A bangle
6. Three feathers
Following diagram shows how I weaved the thread on the bangle:
1. First step is to coil the thread around the bangle that would act like a hoop here:
I am too happy with my Dreamcatcher. I hope you enjoy making it too!
