Yay! I finally stitched tire treads to the wheels of my beaded motorcycle! I used metal zippers for this. I also stitched the front tire to rest of the bike! Looks pretty cool, but I am still not finished. I have a couple more details to add. There are a few design issues I need to figure out, as well… like how to finish the piece! But for now, I will just marvel at my own beadwork. 😉

  3. >Zipper tread! I love it! (And if you don’t put it on canvas, or a leather jacket, I could totally see it on one of those big leather bags with the long, long fringe. Start singing now: Born to be wild . . . )

  4. >really cool, but, I’m not sure I understand…You used a zipper to make the treads…Is the4 zipper usable and you can put lil stuff in the tires?
