Do you mean that your bead-woven project is unraveling?  How did you finish off your loose thread ends?  When you are done weaving you  go back and weave the ends of your thread through your piece tying several secure knots along the way before trimming the end of the thread off.

In order to help troublshoot, let me ask a few questions:  Did you use a loom for the bead weaving?  Are the beads on thread, wire, or something else?

I never tried bead weaving, but I read some instructions, and I guess "weaving the ends" means - real weaving, without beads. I think it should help solve your problem.

the OP will probably never see this since it's been so long since the last post but no, that is not what "weaving the ends" means.  what she was trying to explain was that the ends of the threads need to be taken back through the beads of the finished piece to hide the threads and reinforce it.  tying knots keeps the thread from slipping.  it's really not that hard to understand or do.  but it really does make a difference in the end.

holy crap.  did I really type that?  I meant "never saw".  I think I was sleepy when I was typing my response...

and maybe it will.  I was just pointing out that that's not what it usually means.
