  • Beading

    Which do you start on? Your new outfit's mocs, leggings, choker, barretts, or belt? I'm wanting to bead my own set and I really do not know what to start on.

    Usually start a smaller piece first so I can finish it and see how well it turned out and get excited and want to finish the rest.;)

      I agree with Mato on this one. Starting off with the smaller stuff may help motivate you to get the bigger stuff done.

        I like to do the leggings first and then the small stuff. I do Mocs last 'cause I hate turning them.

          i totally agree with you! i have a mental block when it comes to my moccassins!! i get done one and then the other sits there for like a month!

          do you sew soles flat...like shoes, with tough hide like cowhide...or do you use the softer stuff and wrap it up the sides a little bit?

            Thanks for your opinions and ideas. I've got the design I want to do on paper. I'm thinking I want to start with the barretts so I can get a feel on how hard its going to be.

            What do you bead on for the choker? I've heard everything from flannel (which I do not think would stay up straight) to crib liner (which I haven't quite figure out what it is).

            Any other ideas would be great!

              All the crib liner consists of is a piece of rubber sheeting covered with flannel. You should be able to find it in any baby dept in a store like Walmart. If you use flannel or some other type of fabric, you will need something to make it stiff. Good luck with your beaded set.
