One More Dreamcatcher

-oOo-

I showed you the several Dream Catcher style wall hangings over the last month or so. (You can see the last post – here.)

Today I have another one to show you.

I still have plenty of the materials left so I stuck to the same white cotton yarn, together with a different sized metal hoops from the same pack for this one as well.

I rarely make any two items the same even when using the same materials so this Dreamcatcher is not woven/knotted the same way as previous ones.

I also made the tasstles in clusters, with the cluster lengths going from long to short from left to right.

Here’s what I’ve made.

I think I asked this question previously – Any idea what I should charge if I do decide to sell some?

I showed you the first Dream Catcher style wall hanging I made a week or so ago.  You can see it – here.

Sticking to the same white cotton yarn, together with different sized metal hoops from the same packs, I then made a few more.

I did give you a sneaky peak of these before – here, but I’ve now finished making them.

Each is slightly different, and I also added clear and white seed beads and faux pearls as well to one, keeping to the white look.

Here are what I’ve made.

For this one I used one of the largest rings from the pack.  I started this time by wrapping the cotton yarn all the way around the ring. Where I finished and started I tied it off and created a loop for hanging. I then proceeded to wrap the yarn from side to side sround the covered hoop, but wrapping each time off center so that I was left with a clear area in the middle.

I then proceded to work my way around the hoop, knotting the yarn as I did so, and stepping in a bit for each row, until the whole thing had an interesting pattern on it.

I then made dome tassles by wrapping the white cotton yarn atound my hand and tieing off before cutting and removing.  This time I cut the tastles straight across the bottom, rather than at an angle as I did for the previous one.  These were hung from the bottom of the hoop.

I then took some white cotten thread and proceeded to sew on some clear, silver lined, seed beads around the central hole and in a circle a bit further in.

I tied a knot at the bottom of each end of the yarn that was holding the tassles in place and used the thread to sew a couple of white faux pearls and some seed beads to each knot.  I finished by opening out the ends of the yarn.

And this is what it looks like when finished.

For the next one I took two rings from the pack of rings. I put them together so that they were touching at one point and started to wrap the same cotton yarn as I had used previously around both.

I did this for about an inch and a half until the gap between them got a bit much before continuing to wrap the yarn all the way around the largest ring.  When I got back to where I had started I wrapped a few more times over both rings before going all the way around the second ring.

I then built up a pattern by weaving between both wrapped rings

and then knotting a bit until I had a hanging that looked a bit like a new moon.

Rather than make tastles for this hanging I decided that it would be a moon and stars hanging. So I took 5 pre cut and drilled, wooden star shapes and painted them with white acrylic paint.  Before the paint was dry I sprinkled on some Nuvo Sparkle Dust – Snow Glow.

I did the same on the other side.

To attach the stars to the bottom of the moon I used some fine, white, tigertail, beading wire held in place with crimp beads.

I think this picture shows the glitter on the stars better.

And here is the finished creation.

I have one more of this type of creation on the go, and might even make some more. Keep an eye out for future posts about them.

Some are earmarked as gifts for specific people, but if I make more I may have some to sell. Any idea what I should charge if I do decide to sell some?

Lots Of Projects On The Go

Sneaky Peak Of Projects I’m Working On

-oOo-

Hi Crafty Friends and other blog visitors.

Over on my Facebook profile wall I posted a few days ago that, “I have been doing bits of lots of different crafting lately, but most are unfinished or not yet given to the person who is to receive them, so you’ll have to wait a bit to see blog posts about my latest creations“.

Most are still unfinished, and those that are finished still haven’t been passed on to the recipient, so I decided to do a little post today to give you a sneaky peak of what I’ve got on the go.

Rather than drag consumables and half made projects from one room in the house to another, I have different things on the go in different areas of the house.

In bed, while watching TV of an evening, I’ve been crocheting bright scarves.  Still got to finish the crocheting and then tidying in the ends on those.

I think the best descriptionn is – Bright with fluffy bits!

Then, in the sitting room while supervising one nephew doing homework I’ve been working on some tassles from white cotton yarn.

Which I still need some more of to decorate some Dreamcatcher style wall hangings I’ve been working on.

I have a few different formats I’ve started on, in slightly different styles but every one all in white – they still need to be finished off.

I want to add some seed beads and faux pearls to one, perhaps more of these, and add more tassles.

Then, while sat chatting to my mother for a bit each day, I’ve been doing a bit of “basket weaving” using sock yarn to weave around the framework.

I need to finish this and add some paper beads to the top of each cane to prevent accidents.

Then there’s one quilling project that I’ve finished and another I’m working on.

Some wire work with semi-precious stones.

And some decoupage on cards.

There’s still the “Big” work in progress project of creating two single bed quilts for the spare room as well.

So that gives you an idea of what I’ve been up to, and why I’ve not been posting many finished objects lately.

Hope you come back and keep an eye out for the posts that are to come to show what these items look like when completed.

Have fun crafting.
