Crayon Play 2 – Chalky the Spider

So, after we finished making crayons I started thinking about what else I could do with crayons.

One major problem with kids and crayons is finding an odd one lost somewhere, treading on dropped crayons is close to stepping on lego.

I wanted a way of keeping the crayons together.

I thought of an apron, with crayons at the bottom, but the practicality of this wasn’t great.

Then I thought of a toy, with each leg holding a crayon.

I bought a mini artist chalk refill pack from the Early learning centre, they do crayon ones too, but didn’t have any in store.

Then I made Chalky…

Anyway, the pattern is on Ravelry, but if you’re not on Ravelry (and why not?) here is the pattern.
