Beautiful Lace Dreamcatcher with Swarovski Crystal Rainbow Beads and Colorful Lace Feathers!
This beautiful lace was stitched out on my sewing embroidery machine. The top of the dreamcatcher took 1 hour to stitch out, the feathers about 20 each. This is a total of 2 hours of stitching! But the results are beautiful. A little time consuming but it was fun to make.
I used cream top quality thread for the top and top quality variegated thread for the feathers. Variegated thread as you can guess is pretty pricey, but I love the look.
Feathers are 4" long
I don't love real feathers, I love the look of the lace feathers.
I used Swarovski Crystal Beads on the strand for lots of rainbows and sparkles and the top and bottom. I used some other colored crackle beads as well.
The dreamcatcher is shipped in a box to keep its shape. The lace is stiff and that makes it great for dreamcatcher!
You can see this very suncatcher in a video at my YouTube channel.

The dreamcatcher is 15" long and the lace round design 4 1/2" wide.
About Dream Catchers
Dream catchers were hung above the beds of sleeping children to protect them from bad dreams and evil spirits. Legends held that the spider web design of the dream catcher would allow good dreams to pass through and float down the hanging beads and feathers to sleeping children.
Bad dreams, however, would be caught in the web. As the first rays of the morning light hit the dream catcher, the bad dreams would disappear. Children sleeping under a dream catcher would thus be protected from nightmares.
Others interpret the dream catcher's function in a different way. Some believe instead that bad dreams pass through the holes in the web and exit out the nearest window. The good dreams, on the other hand, get caught in the web and slide down the beads and feathers to the sleeping child below.
There is also a Dreamcatcher legend you can google.
