Fiber Feathers

The weather here has been unseasonably cool the past couple days with the temperatures dropping from the 90’s down into the 60’s. Put rain with that and it feels like October.
Weather like this makes me want to stay in my recliner and snuggle under my down throw. 

One day we stayed inside and watched tv all day. I got restless and wanted to crochet something but I did not have any idea what to make so I decided to craft a little instead. I like to keep my hands busy so I pulled out my basket of scrap yarn and decided to make some feathers. 

I have seen feathers like this hung on a branch and used as wall hangings. I love the boho style but I’m singled out on that. These will not be hanging in my house but I think they would look great in a teen room, or a cabin in the mountains. Just something about them have a rustic and native vibe. 

They were easy to make and did not require any sewing. Just cut and tie. You can make them as big or small as you like. They can be used to hang or simply lay them on a shelf or table for a unique decoration. 

Most of the bigger feathers I have seen like this are created with macramé. I remember my grandmother used to do a lot of macrame in the 70’s and 80’s. I have noticed around in stores that it has made a come back. Who remembers the macrame plant hangers or those crazy macrame owls hanging on the walls? As much as I love it, I have tried to stay away from purchasing the supplies to get into macrame, but I love how the yarn feathers turned out and can’t wait to make a few more.
