View Full Version : Best fill technique for filling circles with seed beads?

Hi everyone -- I'm new here.

Could anyone help me with this? I'm making a cushion with large daisy appliques and want to fill the flower centres in with seed beads. The centres measure about two inches across. I tried filling them in with a bead backstitch in horizontal rows but, as I suspected, it looked crap. Should I back stitch the beads in a tight spiral? Or just as tightly packed single beads? I want them to be sewn on in a circular/non-directional way so they look more realistic. Thank you
