We do that because sewing the beadwork onto the leather strip is really tough. As for fastening the belt we just use shoelace threaded through holes on eithee side.
Sorry to bring this thread back up. I did a couple smaller projects first to make sure I had my technique down before starting on my actual set. I just finished my headband (well, I still gotta bead the center rosette..)! What would you suggest backing it with? Also any tips on keeping it in place on my head? The last time I borrowed a headband it started to slip down when I got real into the dance.
