How to make a dream catcher

Legend says Dreamcatchers were intended to protect you from bad dreams while letting good dreams through.
The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below.
The bad dreams would get caught up in the web and disappear when the first rays of sun struck them.

What you need:
- an embroidery hoop
- cotton yarn or embroidery yarn
- needle (optional)
- assorted beads
- assorted feathers
- scissors

How to :

Take the embroidery thread and tie it to the hoop.
Make evenly spaced loops all the way around until you reach the first loop.

Make sure the loops are tight and have tension. Once you go back around the hoop repeat the looping process but this time go through the loops you just made.
Ensure that the knots are in the middle of the loops.

Repeat the process until you reach the center of the hoop and can't pass the ball of thread through the loop easily. You can use a needle when the net becomes too dense and at this point (or before) you can start adding some beads.

Add feathers and arrange them the way you like on the cords hanging from the hook until you are satisfied with the look.
