Applique introduction

Hi!! I have finally decided that I am going to do a picture show on doing applique work. I will be starting this before the end of the week and will take me some time to do as it will be done in real time. Anyhow I have chosen to use size 13 cut beads for this project and some not cut as well. I will be using a size 12 needle and size B thread. My choice of material to bead on is a vaccuum filter from a Kirby demonstration. I have chosen it because it is lightwieght but strong, slightly transparent for tracing the pre drawn up design I did. I also am using it cause it neither frays or is torn through easily. I have mounted it on an embroidery hoop which is 6 inches wide. I decided to do it this way so that I have an easier time with my needle going through. For smaller beads that need smaller needles this is what I use and then back it, back it and back it ...three layers, but I will get to the backing when it is time. Be patient as I have said...this will be underway in a day or two...finishing up another project first.
