            crib cloth to the rescue..lol..its friday..umm yeah u can use crib cloth..and cut out how you want it and measure the length..and attach rhinestones/mirrors or jus beads..then I usually use another piece of crib cloth and line that with the beaded piece and leave slots for the clips..(you can use velcro or combs, or other clips) and you can prob use broadcloth to line it..but..thats what I do with mine..OOps I hope thats the kind of headbead u were talkin bout..hahaha..guess u can use the heavy pellon too..for smaller beads..then u can edge it w/beads or just sew down the edges..time consuming I know..to do edge beads but it still makes it look soo much better..and last longer..soo hope that helps..gee got carried away..hahaha

                      I started beading my dance stick. After a long break from beading, was too busy sewing. Things were going fairly well for the first inch. Then I beaded and took out the next 2 inches 3 times because either I made a mistake in the first couple rows of the design, or I didn't like the way it looked. So after the third time that portion of the design got changed. Now I've got 3" done again!!!LOL

                                  by dancingwater
                                  I'm starting on my leggings and hairties for my jingle outfit. I'm using the lap pads (crib liners) for the leggings, but someone here suggested using vinyl placemats for beadwork, and I went out looking for some, but the closest thing I found was at Kmart, its by Martha Stewart, called Heavy Duty...

                                  Hi,
                                  I am new to PowWows.com. I am an amature beader. I love making earrings. My daughter is a fancy shawl dancer. I have made her earrings. But now I want to make the hair barrette for the back of her head. And would like to know if anyone could tell me how to get started. Do I bead each bead...

                                  Does anyone use Inkle Looms for weaving sashes/garters for pow-wow regalia? I know it's not as nice as fingerweaving, but how accepted is it as an alternative? I've been seeing them quite often on Voyageur and French & Indian War reenactors.
