diy - catching dreams 'sagetex blanca ostrich'

dream channeling with Navajo wrapped dream catchers and ostrich feathers

Soft white small catchers with giant white ostrich feathers and coco beads. Embrace the Native Americans and weave a web to allow the good dreams to channel down to a bliss sleeping state. Traditionally the catcher is a small hoop of a few inches in size with a hole in the center, representing strength and unity. The feather guides the good dreams down whilst the bad ones get lost tangled and stopped in the web, dying in mornings first light. I have these above my bed, on my work inspiration wall, indoor tree and my goldfish even have some hanging above their giant tank. I see many catchers made with thread but found that fluffy white wool was a unique soft variant. I used scrap Navajo fabric used to make fabric ribbon (link coming) which was used to make my mantle ‘Green Navajo Cocoon kimono’ from Imbolc Brighids celebrations, in this transition of the winter to Spring equinox (link coming). From Chapter ‘Dream Catch’ (Link)

✧☾ what I used ☽✧
Fluffy White Wool
Yarn needle
Coco beads
Giant white ostrich feathers
Glue which dries clear
Rings (I used rings left from diy Planters ‘Mini Tuna Peg' link)
Scrap Navajo fabric ribbon (link)

✧☾ directions ☽✧
... Add a dab of glue to ring and wrap around with the fabric, cut and secure end with the glue again
... Secure hanging loop with yarn
... Make a knot with yarn at the loop and start looping yarn in a star geo/pattern all the way around back up to the beginning knot
... Continue this round again but weave in the middle of the wrapped lengths
... Repeat in this fashion until center is reached in which a bead is thread through, knotted and secured
... Thread through beads through another piece of yarn and knot onto bottom, secure
... Glue feather end and push into the beads
