This is a piece of bead embroidery I did as a demo for a class I teach. It is done on a heavyweight Pelon. In actual fact, it is the same as Lacey's Stiffstuff. I like to work on it because you can dye it to match or contrast with your beads. If the backround shows through, it doesn't matter as it isn't stark white. I do most of my embroidery with Fireline as it is strong, and even resists bugles and crystals.
