You may have noticed that at CKC we want you to fall in love with knits. And today just might do it for you! Next up in our series of My First Sewing Projects for Kids is...
Sammy's Slouchy Beanie!
I love slouchy beanies! If you have never seen them before, you're in for a treat. They look especially adorable on tiny kids but my older ones love them too. In fact this pattern goes on up to adult sizes! They are great for everyone! I have five reasons why I love slouchy beanies:
Did you count them?
Now I have another five reasons why slouchy beanies are fantastic: 1) They feel good on your head instead of crushing your skull. 2) Your ears stay completely covered all the time. 3) They look cute even on large heads. 4) They don't have an annoying cuff that always comes unfolded. And, 5) They are made of soft knit so kids actually want to wear them.
I love them!
So here's your chance! Download our FREE pattern for Sammy's Slouchy Beanie and have some fun making a beanie with your kids today! I bet you can't make just one. Hint: These make excellent gifts!
And did you notice the gorgeous knits in my pictures above? I bet you want to know where I got them from.
Purpleseamstress Fabrics is the place! I highly recommend her knits if you're looking for excellent quality and super cute designs. I needed to order some striped knit for a little project I was working on (my local store doesn't carry it) and she had exactly what I was looking for. I was very impressed with her customer service and prices, and when my package arrived I instantly fell in love with the fabrics.
Now you can fall in love with them too! For the next 24 hours, Purpleseamstress Fabrics is offering 10% off to our readers. Just mention the code CKCFANS to her when you order. (Offer good until 5:30 PST on 11/14/13. Not valid on existing orders.) If you have any questions about her knits, she is happy to answer them - just send her a message! That's also how to order when you're ready.
Look how fun my other project turned out using her knits! Trista's Pixie Hoodie, Christmas style. (I can't wait for my daughter's photo shoot!) At CKC we have SO many fun patterns that use knit and we hope you'll take this chance to try it out with our free pattern for Sammy's Slouchy Beanie! We'd love to see how they turn out for you.
