  • fully beaded purse question

    I've always made fully beaded purses on braintan but I wanna see if I can use a different material. Is there a type of fabric I can make fully beaded purse on?

    Try a heavy canvas or duck.
    A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

      I've used uplostery suede with a canvas backing. It's very durable.

      It really all depends on what you plan to use the purse for. Is this for dancing or just for fun?

          Would it be appropriate to wear a lazy stitched or appliquéd beaded belt? If so, should it be mounted on leather with borders of nickel spots, as with the usual loom beaded belt?

          that some southern buckskin dancers have fully beaded mocs and leggings now. Is it a new thing? I always thought they were suppose to be partialy beaded mocs and leggings.
