We can't tell you what a thrill we get every time we learn that someone was inspired to go out and create something new based on something they saw here. When Ohdeedoh reader Jessica saw this low-tech DIY play kitchen
, she not only got an idea for making her own kitchen playmat, she was also kind enough to post detailed instructions and a downloadable pattern on her blog, Balancing Everything...
Jessica tells us that this playmat can be made by sewing machine or, if you want to get seriously low tech, by hand sewing. And we totally agree with her statement that this mat "would make a sweet little Christmas gift for someone who needs a little creative play in their life, but doesn't have the space or money for a big wooden kitchen."
