  1. Made felt animals this year with the bead backing. So many colors to choose from and it held up very well to being stuffed tightly. <3

  2. Sorry you are getting nasty emails. But wanted to leave a comment about Nicole's BeadBacking, I prefer it to Lacy because it holds it shape better and the variety of colors that it comes in. I best order some soon.

  3. though I don't do much beading anymore, I do bead embroidery and NBB is all that I use. I have a little stash of it and just love it. Thanks for the great ideas for other uses. I'm going to give it a try when I attempt my first critter to use on Crazy Quilt.
    Happy New Year.
    xx, Carol

  4. Good luck everyone! Very kind of you Nicole!

  5. I love it. I discovered it a couple of years back. Didn't like lacy's (no color choice and didn't seem to hold up well), didn't like the pellon (same reasons), then I discovered Nicole's Bead Backing. I was in heaven. Wanted all the colors, ordered all the colors, ordered all the colors again (in two different sizes) even though I'd not used all of what I had. I recommend Nicole's Bead Backing to all my beady friends who do bead embroidery. I am working on a bead embroidery project now for a dear friend where I am using this in a wonderful back ground color of pink that complements my bead choices. Also its easy to transfer my pattern to the backing.

  6. Nicole's Bead Backing is perfect for the bead embroidery I do. It's become the only backing I will use. It's significantly better than Lacy's (no weird fuzzy stuff comes off), and I love the color choices!

  7. I love that Nicole's BeadBacking is stiff enough to bead on but doesn't feel like a board. I love that it comes in so many colors. And I love that she sells matching ultrasuede.

    P.S. Us(e) it for doll making. I'm inheriting my bf's publishing business and I'm getting the editing bug LOL

  8. I use NBB for cabochon backing. Love that it will match the color of the cabochon and the thread I'm using.

  9. Looking forward to trying this product! I’ve heard good things about it.

  10. I wish I had seen the Backing that you offer a couple of weeks ago. So many colors.... so many possibilities..... so much fun!!!!
