FIBER FEATHER DREAMCATCHER – Fun Boho DIY that anyone can do! Learn how to make this easy project with Studio Knit.Fiber Feather Dreamcatcher DIY Craft
The dream catcher of my beautiful fibrous feathers adds a nice touch to Bahar, which gives your home décor a fresh Boho Style. A complete step-by-step process to create your Fiber Feathers allows us to create a little Fabric Starch and then design and shape our feathers with yarn! No birds needed. I also share how I learned how to create Hoop Woven Wall Hanger in my photos. Check all of the following including a full video tutorial. Let’s get the craft!
Then wrap your string with any yarn of your choice to form the center of our feather called Rachis. I like to add a touch of glue to the ends to help keep it, then just tie the thread to its tail and cut it.
Now it’s time to create our feathers. Your color choices will really bring your feather design to life. Connect the thread to your feather sleeve at the center. It’s fun to be really creative here. And this part of the feather we create is called Vane.
Soak your fiber hair in warm water for only a few minutes. Then we cut our yarn from both sides. Again, there is no right or wrong way to shape our feathers. I like to cut straight.
Place your hair on your work surface and start to cover both sides with your cooled cloth starch. I love its gelatinous consistency and it’s fun to shape your feathers using a paint brush that shapes your feathers.
When you have run out of fabric starch, place it in a closed container in the refrigerator for reuse. I’m going to transfer my feathers to a piece of parchment paper to dry. If dry, it may take 2-3 days to dry completely. If you want to speed up the process, just use a hairdryer!
HORP WOVEN WALL HANGER
As I wait for my hair to dry, I will create a dreamcatcher wall using a wonderful DIY craft project by my friend Robert Mahar from Kin Community.

WELCOME TO STUDIO KNIT
Kristen McDonnell Knitter. Designer. Teacher.
I wanted to do a tutorial and finally decided on this little macrame bracelet. It is based on the knotted bracelets you see in tourist shops. It is very easy to do and you can design it to suit your style, depending on the beads and beads you choose. They also offer great gifts due to the adjustable length of the sliding buckle.
As long as the bead holes are large enough to accommodate two cords, almost any type of cords and cords work. Only one node is used along a simple square node. The sliding buckle is as simple as finishing, and the whole project can do what you want in part of American Idol or the TV.
You’ll need a few simple things:
- 4 meter cable (I used C-Lon Tex 400 for this demo)
- 8 or more beads depending on the length of the bracelet
- 2 small beads for rockers
- 3 straight pins
- Needle tip for finishing needle (has round ballpoint tip)
- Needle Tip Jewelry Pliers (Optional)
1)Cut the 2-piece strap up to 24,, hold it together and clip about 8 clipboard boards from one end. These will be fill cables. I use a shade of lavender for my stuffing cords.
Cut a piece of cord about 2 meters long. This knot will become ropes. Normally I use the same color cable for both fill and knot cords, but for this demo only, I use a dark purple shade for knot cords. Locate the center of the knot cord, slide it under the filler cables and secure it to the foamcore panel. We will now start to work with square knots with knot cords on the filler cables.
2) I use the right hand, so I usually start with the cable on the right side of the filler cables. Place the fill cords horizontally on the right to form a ring on the right. Take the cable on the left and place it on the horizontal cable, then lift it up under the cables and with the ring on the right. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. This is 1/2 of the square node.
3) Repeat step 2, but take the left cord and place it horizontally on the filler cables that form a loop on the left. Take the right cord and place it on the horizontal cord, then turn it under all the cables and top to left. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. You just made a full-frame knot.
4) After each 3 to 5 square knots, continue to make square knots and place a bead on the filler cables. The number of nodes depends on the size of the cord, the size of the beads, and the fact that many nodes look nice to you. Continue this pattern to the desired length. Note that the sliding clamp will add approximately ″ add.
When you’re done, thread a knot of thread into your needle and sew it to the center as far as possible. If you have problems, use a pair of jewelery pliers to pull your needle. If you find that your knots are too tight and you cannot thread the entire cord, remove the 3-ply cord and sew each thread separately. After properly sewing both knot cables, cut off any excess.
5) Then we make the buckle. Circle your work and hold it together by loosely tying it with a small amount of cord close to both sides of the nodes (I used orange). Foamcore pin bracelet.
Cut a strap about 12 ″ in length. Just like you did in step 1, slide this cord under the four cords and make square knots on all four cords for the 1/2 cord. Finish ends just like you would with a bracelet. When sewing these tips, avoid putting needles into the cords inserted into the needle.
6) Remove these temporary lanyard bits. There are 2 loose cables protruding from both ends of the buckle section. Hold 2 cords together and form a slip knot, place a bead on both cords, then create another slip knot to hold it in place. Cut the excess. Run and show everyone you know.
