    Just wanting to know what the best material is, other than leather, to do lazy stitch on?

    It really depends on what you are making and all leather sure ain't equal when it comes to beading. You can do lazy/lane stitch on just about anything. Heck I have T-shirts that are beaded with lazy stitch. I have done this stitch on just about everything you can get a needle through at one time or another.

    What are you planning on making?

      Right now I am in the process of making a set of side tabs and im using some thin material from Wal- Mart that is kind of flimsy for the side tabs. I thought about using some canvas which i might try on my next set.

          You can do your work on that but I would suggest that you use some ultra hold heat bond and adhere a backing material to the work when it is finished to stiffen it up slightly.

          Remember not to run the heat bond all the way out to the edges cause it will gum up your needle and thread and cause it to break when you are edging it all to finish the piece up.

                Just my opinion, but I'd use Wonder Under as not to gum up the needle later, and put it on before beading. Let it cool thoroughly before attempting to put a needle thru it. If your material is flimsy your beads will bunch up. Then if you don't want your thread to show, put on another fabric when you're done beading.

                  Yeah I am talking after he is done with it. It will kinda seal the threads in place so it he does break a thread he will not lose more than just the beads on that row.

                  I suggested this way since he said he is already started on this project. I prefer to use a bit heavier fabric or 2 layers of thinner stuff that have been bonded together with the heat bond lite or wonder under, myself. Then I back the work with a calico when finishing it all off.

                    pwb,
                    the reason i'm asking is cause i use the light weight canvas and have thought about using the heat and bond on it. but was sure how that would work. was concerned that the iron might singe the thread???

                      I do all my lazy stitch on canvas. I actually bead through double layers of canvas so it is pretty stiff when done. I fold the piece in thirds, with the selvedges in the middle of the back of the piece. That way, there are no rough edges showing. When I'm done, I back the piece with calico. I use fabric glue like Sobo. I just apply it liberally to the back of the work and then stick the calico to it. (The calico has the edges folded and ironed under for a neat look) When done, its flexible and the glue on the back holds the threads in place.
                      If you are what you eat.... I'm fast, cheap and easy.

                        I've decided to try to bead a pair of moccasins for my new outfit. I've never done a pair before. I asked a couple of friends who bead them for some advice, but we really didn't get a lot of time to talk about it. They suggested beading on a piece of canvas first, then sewing that onto leather of...

                        I am starting a new traditional set of beadwork. I have been using buckskin as a material to bead on but it moves around too much. Does anyone have any advice on what is the best material for lane stitch items. I had thought about using canvas, but did not know if it would show too much after sewing...
