How do you sew beads on a dress?

How do you attach beads to fabric?

Sewing Beads in a Cluster

Begin by sewing a knot into the fabric, then pick up a bead onto the needle. Position the bead by making a small stitch into the fabric, then run the need through the batting or on the underside of the fabric, and bring the needle up into the position where the next bead will be placed.

How do you wash a dress with beading on it?

Place the garment into the water and wash using a gentle plunging/swishing action. Avoid rubbing the garment as too much agitation can bend or break the beads/sequins. Rinse the garment in several rinses of cool water – until the rinsing water is clear. Gently squeeze the water out (do not wring).
