Hi this is Megan with and today I'm going to show you how to finish bead embroidery that has an Inserted Textile Piece so what I'm talking about is if you want to insert a piece of fabric or ribbon or some other kind of textile into your Bead Embroidery between your foundation and your backing to attach it to something else you can still stitch an edging onto it so you can see I did on this side already. I just did the basic beaded edge which we do have a video on how to do that and I did that all the way around and then I took it across where I have this ribbon sandwiched in there. So I wanna show you how to do that because that way you can use it for putting ribbon and to make a bracelet or a choker I put in long long lengths of ribbon here to make this into a a waist satchel into a belt. I what to show you it's very similar to what you do when there's not something inserted and you do need it to be a textile that you can stitch through so you couldn't do this with something coming out of here that is rigid or solid that you can't stitch through so I've been doing my basic beaded around the piece and I've been alternating between two different colors of seed beads so what you're going to do, if you know how to do the basic beaded edge go ahead and watch that video first you will need to know how to do that once I come to the edge of my ribbon, I'm going to go ahead and add a bead just like I normally would the big thing here is to hold your ribbon out of the way don't let it fall behind and get folded. You wanna make sure when you hold it straight hold it away so that it's not going to get bunched so if it's loose like this and you don't go through the very edge It will end up being puckered and bunched hold it flat and straight and you're going to insert your needle through the top just like in your regular edging and I think I have one here that's going to be outside of the ribbon one more that I'm going to do just like normal and now I'm getting to the point where if I try to do that it's going to start bunching my ribbon over You would do this just the same to start. You get your next bead go down through the top Then you wanna make sure that you're coming out not too far from the edge but that you are getting your backing piece also catching that with your needle pull this down almost tight just like if you're doing a regular edging and now what you're going to do is holding your ribbon out you're just going to take needle and you're gonna go right back to the back directly above where it's coming out of the backing material go right through the very edge of your ribbon and when you come up the front then you're going to go through that bead the same way you do for the edging when you don't have a textile in there pull tight and this will lay on top of the ribbon I'll show that again for the next one go ahead and grab your seed bead like normal hold your ribbon straight and out of the way go down through the top through all the layers, make sure you get the backing and the only difference between this and the regular beaded edge is that then you need to come up through your ribbon flip it over go up right above where it's coming out right at the edge there and pull it tight You can see it's exactly the same thing, you just need to make sure that you stitch back up through the very edge of your ribbon and I'll show you one more time get your bead go down through the front hold your ribbon straight and you're gonna go right at the edge of the ribbon right at the above back up through your bead just like you normally would As you can see it's going to lay your ribbon right above your textile on the back is still going to be secure and it's going to be nice and neat and tidy and you're gonna have your textile very securely embedded into you piece it's going to be a lot neater and more secure than if you try to attach this after piece was finished
