Blanket stitch filling in circles
Blanket stitch filling in circles is a way of filling with Blanket stitch. This way of filling creates a beautiful netlike pattern.
The method of embroidering a blanket stitch filling in circles is simple. First, embroider the circle with a blanket stitch (Buttonhole wheel). Then, add more rows of blanket stitches, one above the other, moving clockwise. If you need to embroider a half-circle, you can change the stitching order and make half the rows back and forth.

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 yarn will create more daring designs. Also, you can play with colors and make every row of stitches in different colors.
