Hi Bobbi, I was just admiring the cuffs you posted on the BJP blog (they are GORGEOUS!) and I had to come look at your other stuff.
Do you back the cotton fabric with something while you're doing your bead embroidery? I'm thinking I will do my journal pages on fabric, not timtex as some people are doing, and I was wondering if other people back that with paper like Robin suggests, or some kind of interfacing.

hi soren...I backed the cuffs with a lightweight iron-on pellon and finished them off with ultrasuede...
don't like the "feel" of paper, even though it softens fairly quickly as you bead and I thought that tearing it off around the edges was an extra step I didn't want to do, so I didn't follow robin's suggestion.
I'm backing these bj pieces with peltex 70 (something beading gram
recommended) and just fused the fabric to it around the back hem...see the photo of the back side in the next day's blog.
