DIY Idea, Embroidery Loop Dreamcatcher
Many years ago when Nelson and I met he gave me a huge dreamcatcher. I am ashamed to admit it but I hated it. Not only did I not believe in what it was supposed to do but I wasn't planning on putting it up on my wall. After a while it got misplaced and forgotten about. I am sorry my love! I do regret this now.

So I decided to make a couple of dreamcatchers that really represent me. Come along to see how I did it.

    At first I painted my embroidery loops applying two coats of acrylic paint on the "visible" parts.

    Then I used a cotton thread to loop around the base (inner loop). These directions were really helpful for me.

    Continue all the way to the center. Once you are done weaving it's time to insert the inner loop into an outer loop and decorate your dreamcatcher. I glued two little birdies onto it and suspended three feathers on a cotton thread. Your can see the photos above. Typically you would use leather cord but I wanted to make it my own.

    And for the second one I simply inserted one feather into the web. I like how simple it looks.
