Native American Dream Catcher iPad case by 

My vector drawing of a Dream Catcher which originated in the Ojibwa Nation.
American ethnographer Frances Densmore writes in her book Chippewa Customs 1929:
Even infants were provided with protective charms. Examples of these are the “spiderwebs” hung on the hoop of a cradle board. These articles consisted of wooden hoops about 3½ inches in diameter filled with an imitation of a spider’s web made of fine yarn, usually dyed red. In old times this netting was made of nettle fiber. Two spider webs were usually hung on the hoop, and it was said that they “caught any harm that might be in the air as a spider’s web catches and holds whatever comes in contact with it.”
