Question Beading on Velveteen

OK guys I need some advise...am gonna bead floral pattern on dark blue Velveteen, I thought that would be a bit cooler down here in the Texas heat than regular velvet.
Any good advise how to trace pattern onto the fabric as it is dark blue I can't use carbon paper. Also what size of beads, am thinking about 11 or 12's but am a bit afraid to use too small beads so they just disapear into the fabric.
Any and all advise are greatly welcomed

Velveteen does not have as thick a pile as velvet. However, I recommend you back your stitching with another layer of something so that the fabric stays flat. 11/o and 12/o size beads should work just fine. Many folks will draw their design onto paper, attach it to the top of the velveteen and then bead directly on it, tearing away the background. If you use white paper, this will help make your lighter colored beads show up brighter.

You could also attach the design paper to the back side and do it that way. I have done that except I drew my design onto fusible interfacing and then ironed it on. You do have to keep flipping back and forth to make sure you are following your design, which for some, might be too much a hassle.

I have also heard of people using a white pencil, chalk or a tracing wheel and flour but these methods are not as effective as the ones above.

Wink sewing on velveteen

I bead on velveteen and velvet. I always use paper on top of the fabric... for the leaves (and bird and flower) for example, I cut out the leaf design and glue it on the fabric and bead right on top of both the paper and the fabric. The paper gets hidden by the beadwork. I like to use stiff paper,preferably in a colour that will blend in come those inevitable small gaps . and I have used a chalk pencil, the kind quilters use...it can be sharpened. I find I have to go over it sometimes as the chalk dust wears away quickly. I tend to use the chalk for the vines only.
We wanna see it when you're done!

Thank you for the tip, BoQ, loved the pic, real purdy...I am working on my leggings, did a half drawing, scanned it in and then flipped the pic so I would get the same on both sides, I like the idea of using colored paper and just cut out what you need, as the big sheet of paper very quick will wrinkle all up...will try that for the cape as it is a much bigger project than the leggings...
thanks again for your posting

Paper patterns

I forgot to mention that I use coloured paper, but thick coloured paper. Cardstock. (I got it at Michaels.) If you don't have one near you, use some bristolboard (posterboard) or even cereal box and colour it with pencil crayons or a marker before gluing...just as good. Use whatever you can get your needle through happily! The other thing I meant to warn you about is the nap of the velvet, maybe not so much the velveteen, tends to make the pattern want to move on you sometimes....so take care when you are near your borders!
thanks for the compliments on my picture! BoQ57

You could also try a light color fabric marker. Or some interfacing that you just stitch on as you bead.
