            Here's how you bead one when you have 2 hours to get it done:

            The top is beaded like the cap in the zig zag stitch...fastest stitch ever!

              My college didn't allow "decoration or alteration of graduation caps in any way" so, I replaced my tassel with my feathers.

                That's cool! That's why my daughter did when she graduated from her college.

                I have to bead my mother-in-law's cap when we get up there this weekend. Another variation of the infamous zig zag stitch. Should be nice though, when it's done. I should have about 8 hours to work on it. Post a pic when we get back next week.

                  My daughter just graduated from High School they have a no tolerance policy in effect and do not allow any alteration to the cap and gown whatsoever
                  Of course after the event I made it hers

                      In my daughter's case they would not have let her walk during the ceremony she would still get the diploma, just would not be able to participate in the commencement ceremony.
                      They had 500 seniors graduate from her school and after talking with the Senior Principal I can understand what they were trying to do, If they make one exception they would have to make others and pretty soon they would be back to where they were a few years ago. After the ceremony we did what we wanted to make it her own

                        We just had graduation here at our tribal college a couple weeks ago. A lot of the students ask to take their caps home to bead themselves. If they bead it, we let them keep it. Pretty much all of them just bead around the edges, since the caps can be kind of heavy by theirselves. My answer didn't help any, but oh well.
