We drew the inspiration for the Peachy Path dishcloth from an afghan pattern that we found in an old book. You can draw inspiration for original designs from all sorts of places – nature, quilt designs, cross stitch, other crochet patterns and more. In my pattern collection I have tear outs from magazines dating back the the 70’s.
