Crochet Dream Catcher




I recently made a set of Dream catchers for two of my son's friends.

I bought all the supplies from Spotlight in Australia.


I used Moda Vera cotton minis, laser cut feathers and a metal hoop.
(I have provided links to purchase, however these are not affliate links)

You will also need a 4.5mm crochet hook, scissors and sewing needle.

I have written instructions in both US and UK terms, starting with US
