Featured Free Pattern: Coasters to Scrubbies

This week’s “Scrubbie of the Week” is in honor of a wonderful designer that recently passed away. Marinke Slump, or “Wink” as known by her followers, has inspired many with her colorful designs on her blog, “A Creative Being“. I spent much of Monday reading through her posts and admiring her work, and crying. When I came across her “Ombre Coasters”, a pattern I have made many times before, I knew what to do. I grabbed a hook, some cotton yarn, and started making some for wash cloths to remember her by.

Wink’s “Ombre Coasters” make wonderful wash cloths and work up quickly. Her versions, the ombre set and the natural set, are gorgeous. I chose to make mine very colorful because that is what I love about her designs.

Out of all of the scrubbies I have reviewed, the tutorial for this one is by far the best! Beginners will totally love how easy it is to follow and see how it is made.

Wink was a member of Design Wars and to remember her the group is asking people to cover the world in her beautiful mandalas.


Which one will YOU make?

This is the one I have chosen to make.

Be Inspired By Wink

Her beautiful mandalas and use of color caught my eye two years ago and I have been inspired by her ever since. I hope you will be inspired by such “A Creative Being” too.




My favorite design by "A Creative Being" is her "Groovy-ghan".
