take a sip of inspirationMy local guild held a sashiko workshop during the mug rug swap, and I felt inspired to work on some miniature sashiko patterns to feature one month. I set the squares in a background made from stashed fabric with a little Asian flavor.

This mug rug was made by Becca Fenstermaker. All six versions had a different sashiko design (Alas, this was my least favorite of the bunch.)

For more information about sashiko, there’s a terrific overview at Purl Soho.

You can still see traces of the chalk grid I used as a guide.
