  • Barrettes

    Hello, I'm making a barrette, applique-style....do i need to use bias tape around the edges, so the canvas doesnt taper? Or how do i make sure the beading around the edges dont come undone?

    I meant to say "fray", not taper

        Fray check works great also. You can find them at Walmart, Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

          YES!!!! Bias tape NOW, BEFORE you start beading!!

          Just using fray check won't stop your stitches from pulling out.

          You can back your canvas with paper (this is the only time I advocate using glue - a thin coat), then trim it up to finished size and edge with bias tape - hand sew please cuz using the machine makes a "dent".

            I've never used canvas for beading... I always use this stiff felt like material.. its kinda papery but thicker and stiff but flexible too... works great

              It's probably Pelon interfacing. I just bought a yard for like a buck or two at Wally World.

                nope, its not Pelon... I've bought some of that before too and didnt care for it...this is thinner than Pelon and stiffer

                  Depends

                  How I learned is it depends on how you're finishing the edge. If you're rolled edge beading then an easy way is to use that fabric tape stuff used to tape gauze pads to wounds then rolled edge bead over that. If it's just an edge bead then you can use fray check or thinned glue.

                    Yeah, it always depends....like on how much time and effort you're putting into as well ... how long you'd like it to last...how much wear or strain it might undergo...how far behind schedule you are...
