Crafty women

-Hey all,

As the weather is beginning to turn here in NYC it's time to take full advantage of the dwindling warm evenings with some crafting outdoors.

We are talking Dreamcatching crafters!

and here.

 Inspired by these fine ladies at Wiksten, Odette and MCMC Perfumes who have done some real beauties, a few of us thought we would have a go ourselves. More about each of these truly talented women to come!
Also, I am finally watching David Lynch's Twin Peaks, it's amazing.  For anyone who is familiar, I think you'll agree that  the 'D-C' fits right in with all the other oddball fashion/textile/awesomeness going on there. I'm finding that I'm now strangely drawn to bad, christmas gift style sweaters in thrift stores, and I'm only just beginning season 2!

You will need:
-Threads/ Ribbons
-Beads and bits
- We also used old bits of WG designs fabrics, torn into strips for around the hoops.

I found simple instructions here.

 Have fun weaving!


  1. OHHH! I love them! Beautiful dreamcatchers. I haven't had the patience to do a big one yet, but they look so intricate and awesome. I might have to try that.

    What an enviable collection of Chanel nail polish! Fun.

  2. I love it! I need those coral feathers in my life. And I agree, that is one fine chanel polish collection...
