Native American Dream catchers were intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams. The negative dreams would get caught in the central web of the dream catcher and the positive slide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. At the first rays of sunlight the negative dreams would perish. I just love the way Native American Indians saw the world and nature and I have always loved the idea behind dream catchers so decided to have a go at making one myself.
This is my version of a dream catcher made from a central vintage fabric or crocheted doily that I have collected on my many visits to craft and vintage fairs . I have attached it to a covered circular frame and then decorated it with a cascade of various upcycled fabrics, cotton tape, ribbon and/or organza. Each one is totally unique with ribbons of varying length, width and colour to give it a vintage, bohemian vibe.
My dream catchers would look great hanging anywhere in the house, particularly a bedroom and would also be a lovely gift for a vintage style wedding or tea party. They would also be a great gift for a student setting off to uni to give a hippy, bohemian style to their room in Halls.
This one has been decorated with shades of lilac, purple and pink
The central 'web' has a 20cm (8 ins) diameter
The ribbons are up to 38/41cm in length (15/16 ins)
