Okay, I’ll try to keep this as brief as possible, but I have too many good things to say about the creator of this cute little hippo.
Basically, I was in the bookstore looking through craft magazines when I stumbled on mini quiltlets by Kayla Fujimoto. I LOVED them! I still LOVE them! In fact, I LOVE everything else Kayla makes! She has been featured in many craft magazines and also has the March page in the Cloth, Paper, Scissors calendar. WOW!!! How cool is that? She has so much talent!
Anyway, I went to the blog that was listed in the magazine and found a link on her page to One World One Heart! There I saw that Kayla had created a hippo to donate. I freaked out!!! I was teaching at the time and we were the Hippos! I emailed her and...she responded!!! Not only did she write back, but...she sent my class a hippo!!! No way! YES way!!!
Since then, we have corresponded and she has sent me more of her pieces. I will share them soon...they are awesome! In the meantime, check out her blog (here is her post about the hippo) and Etsy to get inspired!
