Dream catchers

Apparently dream catchers are hipster. I think not, I mean your tattoo is lovely right? But it’s an indie thing. Am I wrong?
Anyway the point of this is my friend and I were talking and she thought they were dead hard to make, thing is she was totally wrong. I made one (yes a small one with no complex designs) but I did make one in about 15-20mins. Impressive? Not really I’m sure there are a lot of people who could put me to shame.
But seriously, if you want to try its basically tying a series of knots round a circle and voila, perfection in a hoop.
I used an old plastic bracelet with some ribbon wrapped around it to make it pretty. And then just started experimenting knotting with a brown embroidery thread I had going spare.

This picture from google shows you basically what I mean and trust me its a dream to make. Sorry couldn’t help myself.
If the drawing is not making any sense there are hundreds of pictures and websites, step by step blogs and even step by steps on YouTube. If you would like a step by step let me know, I’d be happy to do one if required. I am going to try a more complex design soon, maybe I’ll post that.

This ones my first, undecorated but still pleasing to look at I think.
