hmmm, what can I possibly say about Ayumi and her blog Pink Penguin?! Other than the fact that I'm very honored for her to take time to contribute to Spice up your Kitchen.
I know Ayumi wouldn't be able to resist the kitchen theme when I asked her to join in. She makes the most adorable, fun and functional things. Each piece of fabric is chosen with such precision and thought. Oh, and besides having an awesome array of beautiful easy to follow tutorials, she has a great etsy store, AND she has two tutorials (apple coasters and a plastic bag dispenser) in the most current issue of Stitch! Be sure to check out her blog because she'll be one busy lady with her upcoming wedding.
Please welcome Ayumi!
Hello, everyone! I am Ayumi from Pink Penguin blog. I got really excited when Anna contacted me and asked if I would like to be a part of Spice Up Your Kitchen. Of course, I said YES right away. Anna has been a very nice, inspirational blog friend for me, and I've always wanted to be a part of some fun blog event like this where I can connect with bloggers/seamstresses ;) Thank you again Anna for including me for the fun!
To tell a bit about myself, I was born and raised in Japan, but now I live with my fiance in Northern California. I've always loved creating things, having someone create something for me, and owning handmade items made with love. Today I'd like to introduce a tutorial for a quilted placemat that is easy and fun to make!
Not only can this simple project help you detash your fabric scraps but also that it will be a great way to bright up your dining time!
Go check out Ayumi's complete Quilted Placemat Tutorial HERE on Pink Penguin.
Thanks Ayumi for sharing this project, I know my girls would love one!
