It’s time for another sneak peek, and today we are thrilled to share a preview of the officially licensed Colorful Friends collection by Crayola™.
Whether it’s providing tools to put a purple octopus on the moon, or enabling teachers to bring arts-infused learning into the classroom, Crayola is passionate about helping parents and educators raise creatively alive children who we believe will grow to be inspired, original adults. They’ve inspired artistic creativity in children for more than 100 years – since the first box of Crayola crayons rolled off the assembly line in 1903.
Colorful Friends is a bright, energetic juvenile collection boasting a cheerful color palette of blue, green, orange, purple and gray. The stripe and animal drawings look as if they were sketched from actual crayons. Cute!
Take a closer look at the Main print. Here you’ll find a collection of elephants, hippos, lions, zebras and giraffes with leaves and text scattered throughout. The Main print will be available in Granite (shown here), Blue, and White.
Looking for another animal print option? This adorable print, aptly named “Animals” features adorable little animal portraits where each creature is posing in its own frame. These would be fun to incorporate into I Spy quilts, don’t you think? Animals will be available in Key Lime (shown here), Charcoal, and White.
We love a good tone-on-tone print to pull a fabric line together and give the eye a place to rest. These blenders are essential for any fabric line. Footprints is just that, with sweet little animal paw prints on a slightly lighter backdrop, this cute print is a must have. Footprints will be available in Outrageous Orange (shown here), Wild, Blue, and Granite.
The Colorful Friends collection also features this 36″ x WOF fabric panel. Add a border or two for a quick and easy project, or cut out the squares and fussy cut them into larger quilts, pillows and other projects. So many options!
We can’t wait to start creating with Colorful Friends! We’re dreaming up quilts, pillows, p.j.s, library bags and more. What will you make with Colorful Friends?
