  • which type of leggings

    I am wondering what is the best type of leegings does everyone prefer to use? Either cloth or tanned hide.:39:

    Well I like to bead on cloth for leggings...either canvas or that crib bedding stuff!! It's a lot easier to get the needle through... then you can always wash them if you need to!

      There can only be 2 moccasins on your feet at one time...however life has given me many pair...along with a needle, thread and really sharp teeth to cut with...lmao

        I always do all my beadwork on cloth backed with interfacing all stretched on a big embroidery hoop or frame. If the peice is stiff enough to stand up on its own, I'll back it with pretty calico or cotton broadcloth for a lining. If the peice needs more body, then I back it with medium thickness leather (usually cheaper cowhide, cuz you won't see it on the inside of a legging). That's for fully beaded leggings. For partially beaded leggings, I just bite the bullet and bead directly on white deerskin. I break a few needles but it looks great!

            I have black velvet with a canvas lining so it doesn't scrunch up. I like it. I like beaded leggings too. As long as they work, any leggings are fine I think. Matching is preferred ;)

                    by DakotaPikey
                    I'm SO new to, have torn these threads apart, and am THRILLED that there are so many wonderful teachers in here willing to lend their advice. I'm completely self taught, but have always had a problem: putting backing on ANYTHING after the beadwork's done (sad, no?). Most of the stuff I...

                    Backing Beadwork on Satin cloth
                    by Highwolf89
                    Aniin I have a question on what glue to use for backing bead work.. I am getting ready to finish my beaded appliqué vest and i did it on Satin cloth. I know silly right sense its so thin and it wasn't easy lol... but i figured putting clear tape on the back while stretching it helped a lot for beading.....

                    Beading Help
                    by storm122366
                    I am starting a new traditional set of beadwork. I have been using buckskin as a material to bead on but it moves around too much. Does anyone have any advice on what is the best material for lane stitch items. I had thought about using canvas, but did not know if it would show too much after sewing...
