Can you bead on tulle?
If you are working with tulle for a veil or a costume, one thing that is often added to the tulle to add sparkle and interest is tiny beads. These small seed beads or bugle beads give tulle an additional pizazz that is very evident when the tulle is being worn.
What kind of tulle is best for embroidery?
Most nylon tulle doesn’t work well under tension, either – it tends to tear in a hoop, or when tightening up a frame. But cotton tulle is a strong net fabric. It’s a beautiful fabric. And it is a worthy ground fabric for the techniques of hand embroidery and lace worked on machine-made net.
What fabric do you use for beading?
Bead Embroidery Backings
The best choice for a bead embroidery backing is some kind of fabric. Ultrasuede and Sensuede are preferred by many professional bead artists, and even a thin piece of natural leather can be used. A good bead embroidery backing will make your piece look professional.
