    contemptradish,

    You could also make a pair of beaded spreader sockects by loom beading and gluing them on. I use film cansiters and the clear ones (Fugi Film) are same diameter top to bottom.

    Hope this helps

      that is a good idea. and that's basically what i have already. well, what i did was wrap a circumference worth of beads around the canister then put the needle through the first bead in the row, then up to string on the next row. does that make sense at all? probably now. oh well

        contemptradish,

        It makes sense to me you basically beaded the container a row at a time with out the benefit of warp threads. Sounds like it was difficult to keep the beads
        on straight.

          yeah it was hard. i guess doing it on a loom would be better as far as keeping it all inline. i'll have to try it your way, too. never have too many spreaders!

          .... i guess.

            jmm do you tack your bead work onto a leather base or (some other base first) then glue onto canister?

            Thinking how your loom bead work stays on the surface of the canister?

              I glue the bead work directly to the canister with glue. Where the seams meet on the beading sometimes I glue a strip of felt to hide the seam some times I don't. Important, make sure that the seam meets in the back of the container and the warp threads don't stick out. Make sure that the glue is evenly distributed on the container, wipe up any that gets on the front of the beading right away, and use something like a few rubber bands to hold the beadwork in place while it is drying.

                do you sew the ends together at all, or does the glue just hold it all down?

                  I just glue the whole thing down. I have seen others that sew down the beadwork by drilling a few holes so after they glue it down there are a few places that they can use as anchor points when they sew it down. YOu need
                  to be careful when sewing it down so one can't distinguish between the warp threads and what you used to sew it down.

                      Even easier than dealing with loom warp threads would be to do a stitch that looks like loom work but without the loom. Its shown in one of those Beads to Buckskins books. But, I don't know which one. Fat help I am, huh?!

                        I am wanting to make a beaded bolo tie for a friend, but I have never made one. I want the cord to be beaded and have a beaded medallion on the clasp. Where do you find the clasp, or do you make it? Do you gourd stitch the cord? What kind of cord do you use? Any suggestions would be great! Th...

                        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 have beaded many items, but never a knife sheath. A friend has asked me to cover a sheath he already has with beadwork. I normally bead on pellon. Should I cut a piece to fit the sheath, bead on it, then glue it to the existing sheath? Then edge bead?
