I've always been intrigued by Native American culture and dream catchers fascinate me. Traditionally, the Ojibwa made dream catchers by tying sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame of willow. The result hung above the bed, is used as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through. Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day. Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper.

I managed to make my very own about eight years ago but have since lost it. I feel nows the time to make another...
