How do you bead a moccasin vamp?

Thread a needle and tie a knot on the end of it. Thread from the bottom of the vamp up and then put on up to 5 beads and thread the needle down. “Tack” the beads down by looping back around them so that the line of beads don’t move around. Tack down from 2-3 beads at a time.
