* Jeans, a shirt, a purse, tote bag or fabric to make a pillow or bag (No stretchy material. Jeans can have a little stretch, but no knits.)
* Size 11 seed beads in your desired colors.
* Sharp needle, size 10 long
* Nylon beading thread either Nymo D or C-lon D to match the garment
* Scissors, Wax, Bead Mat
If you plan to wash your garment, you will need to test your beads for colorfastness. Put a few beads in a dish of hot soapy water and leave them there for an hour or two. Rinse the beads. If they are not the same color as when they went in, don't use them. Dyed or color lined beads are not good for this project. If you plan to dry clean the garment test the beads by putting them in nail polish remover. The same rules apply.
