In the illustration below on Beading on Fabric, we show a fabric that already has a design on it to further enhance it with bugle and seed beads.
|1) Thread the beading needle with about 1 meter of beading thread.
Tie a knot at the other end of the thread.
Thread the needle through the fabric, back to front, where you want to position the first bead.
|2) Thread your first bead.
Push the needle back through the fabric, front to back, slightly further along from where the thread came up and towards where you want the second bead.
This spacing (between the in and out of the needle on the fabric) should be far enough to allow the bead to sit nicely on the fabric.
Continue to embellish the fabric in this way till your are happy with the look.
