A Gundam, although portrayed in many different forms throughout it's extensive franchise history, is generally the same basic idea throughout the series. The Gundam is what is known to it's universe as a 'Mobile Suit', which is typically a war-use giant robot (or "mech/mecha") that is operated by a pilot. Gundams aren't average mobile suits, however, and are usually regarded as being the most powerful and uncommon mobile suits. The first Gundam that appeared in the franchise was the RX-78-2 "GUNDAM." This design shows the key elements to the aesthetics of a Gundam. In the Universal Century timeline, Gundams are known to be of a Luna Titanium Alloy, or more simply "Gundarium/Gundallium Alloy". Along with other more specific characteristics, Gundams usually have a signature "v" located on the forehead (commonly referred to as the "v-fin"), along with a protruding segment on the chin, and Beam Rifle weaponry. Unfortunately, there are too many variants to list them all, but their information and details can be found on the Gundam Wikia site.
There are books available through sewing centers or sewing catalogs on line. Some of the books are very inexpensive. Also check your local library. They are an excellent source of information. You also didn't state whether you were speaking of machine stitches or hand stitches. Either way, give your library a look see. <><><> I stumbled upon this because I was looking for the same thing! Examples of Hand stitches ONLINE. I found a few links with some examples that I hope will be useful: http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=section/classroom/teachingTools_handSewing.html http://www.serve.com/rbriggs/couriers/5-97/sewing.html
"How about adding clasps? A little tricky. You can tie off the warp against the beads, gather all the threads, string them through a clasp and knot them, then turn them under the piece and hide them with backing. The method I use the most often requires a bit of forethought. At the top of the piece, I weave about an inch of beads unrelated to my pattern. At the end, I weave the woof a bit, knot the ends and glue the knots, then turn under. Then I glue on a small square of hooked Velcro. (I later sew it to the piece for good measure.) At the end where I wove that extra inch of beads, I also knot and glue, but I lay the warp on top of the piece and secure the looped side of the Velcro."

I couldn't figure how to answer, so i just edited.. this is my first time=).
What I usually do is add a crimp bead (4$ a pack at Jo-Anns) , then the clasp, go back through the crimp bead the way you came out, squish it, and trim end, then add a TINY amount of bead glue.
Works best with a toggle clasp=)
