    I assume you are talking about a beaded choker, not one made of hairpipe.
    You can use diaper pad, buckskin, or canvas for your backing depending on what you like. I'd probally suggest diaper pad, because it's softer and more flexible.

    From the way it sounds, your choker is loom beaded.???
    The things you are doing today are the traditions of twenty-five years from now.

      I am interested in beading a vest but I have no idea how to start. I am not sure what I need in order to get started. How do I measure what size I need and all? Please let me know what I need to get started and where I should begin as well as come up with a design.
