Beading styles

Question. I'm sure everyon has heard of KQ designs. Anyway I think their
beadwork is amazing. My question is how or what type of stitching/beading
style do they use to make the leggings so flat. It is obviously not lazy stitch. I would love to learn how to do that kind of work. LOL thanks.

Am not sure which leggings you are refering to, I saw Lane stitch (lazy stitch), and the blue ones with floral actually looks like it is applique on velvet but maybe my old eyes is playing me a trick..on the moccs site I saw applique (the flat look) and Lane...look if there isn't a tutorial for the two needle applique in the tutorials...

Thanks for the input. I will have to take a look at it again. Maybe my eyes have gone bad. LOL . I also was thinking the size of the beads they use could be a factor. HMMMM. Oh well, thanks again.

The blue set is applique. The background looks like cuts, I can see a few sparkles. The others I saw were lane stitch.

There are several tricks to getting very flat applique: Use a good stiffener. Tack the beads down every 2 or 3 beads. DO NOT crowd the beads.

To get flat lane stitch -- which is not every tribe's style. Keep you lanes narrow -- no more than 3/8" for 13/o's and 1/2" for 11/o's. Do not crowd the beads. Use a good quality adequately thick substrate, buckskin and crib pad are more forgiving and lay flatter than canvas. Fill the bead holes with thread -- use a thick enough thread for the bead or double thinner threads. Putting the base stitch of each row in under the previous will close up the gap and give a flatter look. (Understand this isn't traditional, so if you're making reproductions it will stick out like a sore thumb.) Cull you beads, throw out the odd sizes and uneven beads.

Then the real trick -- practice, practice, practice.

To add to what OLChemist said- To get flat lane stitch, the Cheyenne use a technique where each new stitch is looped around the thread of the stitch below it (or above, depending on which way you work). In other words, only one end of each stitch goes into the leather or base material. This is when one is beading multiple rows atop each other. Hope that makes sense.

For applique work, I find I get flatter results with the 2-needle method of beading as less tension is placed on the thread that carries the beads.
