Ganzezashi (Sea Urchin) Pattern

LIVE with The Shibaguyz

Ganzezashi (Sea Urchin)

RECORDING from July 20, 2021

Ganzezashi (Sea Urchin) is one of the most recognized patterns in moyouzashi sashiko and one look at the radiating lines and angles of stitching will tell you why. The visual appeal of this pattern as well as the ability to reduce or enlarge the overall pattern make it perfect for use by itself as a panel or for embellishing garments, for visible mending, as embroidery on home décor, or as a quilting panel or an overall quilting pattern. 

Join us for this deeper dive into moyouzashi sashiko and learn how to map out the lines for ganzezashi yourself and find out how to avoid some of the common pitfalls with these types of stitch patterns so your stitches look neat and clean, and your finished project looks stunning emblazoned with this iconic stitch pattern.

Find a New Passion

You said this was addictive, and you're right.

I've converted a corner of my bedroom to use as my stitching spot. Bought a floor lamp for good light and a firestick so I can have trash tv on in the background

 It is every bit as relaxing and soothing as you claimed.

Hey, Shibaguyz!!

I am having so much fun playing with boro and sashiko stitches and finding everything that might need 'mending' in my and my kids’ wardrobes.

I learned several things that I didn’t know that I didn’t know!

Inspiration and New Skills

Good afternoon Shibaguyz! In case y’all haven’t heard it enough, your class is the best ever and I had a wonderful time and learned so much.

I just got a little treasury of sashiko patterns and am excited to do a sampler!

Again, thank you so much for teaching an awesome skill!
