Color Crayon Blanket ~ Tester Showcase

posted in: Crochet, Tester Showcase | 0

I don’t know where you’re located on this globe…but if you’re like me and you’re in the DEAD of winter, freezing your (insert preferred term for your rear-end here ๐Ÿ˜†) off in negative temps, then you need some COLOR in your life!

How about a rainbow color crayon blanket? ๐Ÿ˜ It’s sure to be a fun make and just LOOK at all the cool versions my testers made below!

This is a time I am SUPER thankful for my testers. It’s dark and gloomy here in Minnesota (USA) and I couldn’t get a good photo of my own crayons – at all. Each one I took came out dark and hard to see, or shadowed when I tried taking pictures indoors. This one was the best I had – and this blanket is perfect for our house since I’m a teacher (of 5 different grades!) and all my younger kids love to color.

FUN FACT! All the tester’s featured below live in the southern hemisphere – so THEY’RE enjoying SUMMER and could take awesome photos of their blankets. Not fair! ๐Ÿ˜…
