I finished a little sashiko project that I started a long time ago. It was just a little practice piece that I bordered and lightly quilted with a puffy batting.
The solid fabric in the center that holds the needlework is called Essex. It's 50% linen and 50% cotton. The weave is a bit looser than flat cotton, so it's nice to work with. The large sashiko needle and thick thread glide between the threads. The border is Japanese Indigo fabric.
I love my little mug rug. Perfect for a drink and a little snack.
I carry Sashiko supplies and Essex fabric on my website, along with some patterns and books. HERE
