Catching Dreams...

My son's girlfriend celebrated a birthday recently and she just loves dream catchers so.....

...I decided to try my hand at making one for her.


I knew she'd love those shabby chic ones we've seen all over Pinterest and Blogland.

The best part was...
...I found everything I needed right here in my studio!

I spray painted a vintage metal embroidery hoop.... 

...and then got busy adding vintage lace, ribbon, fabric strips.....

...and beads.

A vintage crocheted doily made for the perfect "catcher" of dreams.

It was fun and easy to make and, best of all, she LOVED it!
Happy day Mes Amies!

  2. Love it, I have been meaning to make this kind of dream catcher for months and still have it all sitting waiting for me to find time.
    I think you just inspired me to get up and do it

  13. That is a beautiful dream cather. I found a crocheted doily on a copper hoop at the Thrift store. I thought it was beautiful so I got it. Didn't know what I would do with it. I love the idea of hanging ribbon on it. Thanks for the inspiration.
