fully beaded top

I am starting work on a fully beaded top for my friend's northern traditional outfit. Has anyone here ever done one of these? I am using canvas as a base to bead on. I pre -shrunk the canvas, cut out the shape and drew the major parts of the design on it with a pencil. I also zig zagged the edges with my sewing machine so it won't fray too much. I am thinking bias tape around the edges would be good. Does anyone know of bias tape is pre shrunk? I am worrying that if I put it on and the top gets wet, it could ruin the top.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated :)
