    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...

    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.

    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

    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".

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

    I meant to say "fray", not taper
