We're halfway through November and moving closer to Thanksgiving all the time! We want to thank YOU, our fans, for being such a positive group. I'm always impressed with the passion we see in our Facebook groups and the support you give to each other. Please keep posting and commenting - we love to see your creations and how you are inspired by CKC! Let's review some of the great things that have happened this past week:
This week we released FOUR new doll patterns! We've been busy! The new doll patterns are Joy's in the top left, Sabrina's top and Clarissa's pants combined in the top right (yes, you get both patterns together!), Peony's in the bottom left, and then Elena's on the bottom right. There are going to be a lot of happy matching girls and dolls very soon!
On the Blog
This week on the blog we highlighted The Pretty Pink Pumpkin as November's Boutique of the Month. Congratulations to Leigh Tapia!
Morgan gave us some really great tips for working with knits. You'll learn everything you need to know about the different kinds of knits and how to sew with them!
On the blog this week, we did another kids' "My First Sewing Project" tutorial and provided you with this FREE knit beanie pattern called Sammy's Slouchy Beanie. It's the perfect way to try out knit with your kids, even if you've never done it before. (I made slouchy beanies for all my kids and they love them!) They also make great gifts.
Then last up on the blog, we let you in on a little secret about our New Pattern Release Schedule. We're right on top of things!
CKC - On YouTube
This week on YouTube, Shannon provided us with a fun video featuring Kadence's Knot Top. Her daughter, Charlotte, even joined her on camera to show off how cute this top is in action! Seriously adorable. In case you missed it, here's the link: http://youtu.be/PHbwwn0f134
