In this video tutorial, I demonstrate how to use a blanket stitch for filling in circles.
This way of filling is a blanket stitch filling variation. This stitch creates a beautiful netlike pattern. You can use it to fill spaces in your hand embroidery design. Also, this type of filling stitches looks great on patchworks and in mending clothes.
The method of embroidering a blanket stitch filling in circles is simple. First, embroider the circle with a blanket stitch. Then, add more rows of blanket stitches, one above the other, moving in the clockwise direction. If you need to embroider a half-circle, you can change the stitching order and make half rows back and forth.
The blanket stitch filling in circles will work best on irregular or round shapes. Also, it will look good in a mix with other filling stitches.
In this video tutorial, I used a pearl cotton thread for embroidery. You can choose the floss that will match your pattern and design best. Thin threads will look more like a spider web or laces. Bolder threads will create more daring designs. Also, you can play with colors and make every row of stitches in different colors.
