In today’s Craft video we make a dreamcatcher for our sweet Threadbanger Corinne Leigh. I love the aesthetic and look of Native American decor and want to start looking for textiles to add to our home. Dreamcatchers are a lovely nod to the culture and can be a really beautiful piece adorned with sacred objects like beads, charms and collected feathers. They are a symbol of unity and help weed out any nightmares. As Konrad J. Kaweczynski said, “Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through… Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day.”
