  • beading moccasins

    I want to bead my moccasins. They are dark brown leather and I think they are to plain. I know how to make rosettes and am pretty darn good at those. But I wasn't sure if that was the same way to do moccasins. I was raised in a white family so there isn't a grandmother or mother to show me how to do things. So basically I have tought myself or the elders I visit. So if anyone has any tips or can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

        Mounting beadwork on frames
        by Ismella Pharte
        Was just wondering, when you all do lazy or applique` for big projects like mocc tops, leggings, yokes or vests, do you always mount them on frames? I'm having a hard time trying to maneuver around the frame. Is there any other way? :(
