STEP 2:  Weaving –

Begin by tying one end of the yarn to the hoop. Loop the yarn over the hoop and back through as shown in the photo. Keep making loops like this, evenly spaced to your desired size around the hoop. When you get back to the beginning, continue by connecting the last hoop to the first hoop, and continue on in this pattern, pulling tighter as you go. To finish it off,  just fasten it with a knot in the centre.

Loop through the holes and knot it at the top. Continue this the whole way around the hoop, making sure the doily is secure.

STEP 8:  Thread the beads over the end of the feathers, or, if you prefer, you can thread beads onto leather thonging. Then just simply tie the leather around the end of the feather so it is hanging. Use as many feathers as desired.
