Romantic Dreams

I've wanted to make a Romantic Dream Catcher ever since I saw these. When I heard there was a pool noodle party I thought hmm maybe I can use one to make a soft romantic style dream catcher.


 I started with a blue pool noodle from the Dollar store, I split it down the middle and cut off about a three inch wide slice


  I taped it all all around with packing tape to stabilize it. Then taped the ends together. I wrapped the tape covered pool noodle with ripped strips of muslin and  then wrapped it again lightly with seam binding.






 I used  vintage crochet lace that I purchased from the thrift store in place of the netting that's usually used in the center. I tied on ticking stripe fabric, vintage lace, twine, maribou feathers, pearls,  rhinestones, crystals and a  vintage look posies.









 My oldest Daughter claimed this as her own  as soon as I completed it. Its now hanging in her very shabby chic bedroom. She takes after her mother  lol. I'm joining  Debbiedoo's for the Pool Noodle Party.

  13. I kind of went backwards up the list for the party so I'm getting to this last. It's possibly my favorite of all. It's so unique and pretty. (And now I have to go google "dream catchers" to see the origin and all about them. Just plain lovely!

  16. I love this dream catcher. I am off to DOllar Store to pick me some up noodles. Going to add some color to mine using my Blue & Gold Macaw parrot's feathers. Been saving them for something spectacular and now you have supplied the idea. Thank you. Take care.
