Clematis as Sashiko design
Sashiko patterns usually have geometric designs both in Moyozashi and Hitomezashi. Some motifs stem from Chinese designs, but lots of common motifs are derived from nature such as flowers, plants, waves, snow, or even creatures such as turtles.
In this workshop, I'll introduce you Tessen pattern, the clematis design. This pattern looks intricate, but actually it consists of two common sashiko patterns. I will disassemble the pattern into three so you can draw and stitch the pattern step by step.
Not only showing the structure of the pattern, I will demonstrate how to stitch it without making any knots. With this method, you can make a beautiful reversible design on the single layered fabric. Once you learned how, you can apply this technique to all other Moyozashi sashiko patterns.
