So I made my strawberry pattern and have cut out the body of the bag. I'm going to do a thin layer of quilting and bead the seeds onto that to give it that slightly quilted look. It was funny studying a strawberry last night, but I did realize that the seeds are in a defined diamond pattern: a row of evenly spaced seeds, the next rows seeds offset to the middle of the previous row, like so:




So I was all set to start beading but then realized I'd brought the wrong needle to the beach - doh! Oh well, I've got my seeds marked at least.

Anyone want to weigh in on what I should do for seeds? The real seeds are a sort of yellow color and oblong, so I was thinking either bugle beads in gold or maybe freshwater pearls in off-white. Any thoughts?

The freshwater pearls will be lovely, I think. If you want to pick up the gold, there are now dyed freshwater pearls in gold; for myself, I'd go with the cream.
