Next Week's Crayon!!

  Shiny Shamrock

This weeks color is obviously named for the food. Even if it's not QUITE the shade as Kraft's Mac and cheese! It first appeared in 1993 in the 96 crayon box. It was part of a name the color contest and was named by a six year old named Adrienne Watral . The contest to name several new shades was done to coincide with Crayola's 90th anniversary. For one year after the new names for the colors where announced the crayons wrapper had the name of the person that named the color on them. After that they reverted to the standard crayon wrapper. You can read all about it at this link! a page I JUST found and will be bookmarking and reading over for later posts!

Onto the outfit, I saw the coat in a few others blog posts and HAD TO HAVE IT. Why? It's a second life version of a Katwise, or Elf coat! ! The coats are made from recycled sweaters, and as Kat, the originator of the design sells instructions on how to make your own, I have no problem with a second life version. Many creators sell their own versions on etsy, with her blessings! I know this as I have the instructions and did my own attempt at one. Mine didn't turn out so well as my serger needs servicing and the tension was all a much and it just need up a big UGH. I do plan to eventually have another go at it. In fact I should go sweater hunting soon before they are all gone from the thrift stores.

I actually bought the coat in two colors, one for this shot and one in a purple I'll be more likely to wear! The one I made is all pinks and purples for wearing at colder Renaissance Faires.

I picked a snow scene for the shot as it made sense. And I do not yet have my computer back so just the one image. I get it on Monday though! I'm so excited! Just in time for the start of Relay For Life and the Fashion Faire!
