      I like the baby batting too. Water proof, sturdy and doesnt fray. Can be costly by the yard if your working on a very large project.
      Of course leather. I do buy the white batting? Geez I forgot what it's called. The thickest,stiffest they have at JoAnn fabrics. Umm, it's what is used inside the men's button up shirt collars.
      Yah, can some one help me to remember what that is called?:Thinking

          I'm game, I'll have to go to Wally-world and go get some upholstery vinyl. Do you get it in any certain color?

            I also use that baby sheet stuff...lol no idea what it is called, have to go to the states to get it. Also for larger pieces cape/yoke and leggings I use a doubled canvas it stays nice and stiff to bead on and it doesnt fray like regular canvas...i dont know if they get that in the states or just up here in canada.

              Hey.... A few years ago I went to a pow-wow in Merit. Great pow-wow by the way. And some people were telling us to go to Walmart and get this colored fringe that they use on their grass dance and northern cloth applique dresses. We looked and never found it. I just dont know what it was called. Do you know what I'm talking about...

                      I like to bead on that crib sheeting or on some canvas that has like a plastic sprayed on (makes is nice and sturdy). Gotta honestly say that I've never beaded anything on leather though.

                        Thank you siksika_sunshine and JUS ME. I think JUS ME explained it better than me. But yes I heard it was for braiding rugs etc. and they only have it once in awhile.
                        Years ago my friend did a applique Northern style womans tradish. For the long fringe she used some thing she got in in BC at Walmart. She hasnt been back up in years. In fact the last time was for Merritt. In 99?
                        How much does it cost?
