Friday Recap

Thank you to all of our fans for showing us so much love on Black Friday and Cyber Monday! Was that fun or what?!  (I loaded up on quite a few myself.) We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and that you're off to a great start this Christmas season.

New Releases

 Last week we released Tori's Bustled Princess Dress. What a perfect dress for special occasions! This is CKC's first dress pattern to use a sweetheart bodice with sleeves (fans have been asking for it!) and I just love how it looks with its double layered ruffle skirt. She will definitely get noticed at parties this Christmas!

This week we released Opal's Peekaboo Ruffle Pants and Capris. These pants and capris are completely different from all of our other pants styles! They have bigger, poofier ruffles and a fun peekaboo design that will go great with Poppy's Peekaboo Dress or the new Tori's Bustled Dress! Look at this adorable outfit with Opal's Peekaboo Pants, created by Licorice Lane Shop!

We've had a lot of requests for this next release!  Joy's Lace Twirly Dress is now available in Women's sizes!  This beautiful dress will have you twirling around happily like a little girl! With its beautiful ruffles and optional shirring, this ruffled dress is trendy and flattering on all body types. You'll love it! Right now it is 30% off as a new release, until late Friday afternoon. (I have to give  props to my friend who modeled for me here - it was freezing outside! I wonder if she's warm yet.) 

Then of course we also released Joy's Lace Twirly Dress in Women's Plus!  It's the same beautiful dress I described above and it goes up to size 5X in Women's Plus. Be sure to look at the other tester images available at the link - so many gorgeous dresses to see!  This pattern is also 30% off as a new release, until late Friday afternoon. 

On the Blog

On the blog this week we have devoted every single day to our Twelve Days of Christmas! Have you seen the amazing free patterns we're giving away? We started out with a new stocking style and then followed with several great gift ideas for your loved ones. Check out the links below!  Let's sing it in review, we're up to Day Four, from Thursday:

  On the fourth day of Christmas, CKC gave to me... 
A handy Scrap Catcher,
 Stylish D-Ring Belt,
  Ruffled Camera Strap --
And a Stocking to put my gifts in!  

Did you get all that rhythm figured out? Practice up, because there will be a singing contest when we get to the end. Yep, you read that right!  (I am definitely not qualified to judge singing ability, but I'm the song-writer of these lyrics so I say you get extra points for having fun and getting it just right!) ANYWAY -  Later today we'll be posting our Fifth Day of Christmas pattern, so be sure to check back! We love our CKC fans and are so happy to give these gifts to you this Christmas season!


Our Sew-Along for December is in full swing, as we work together sewing our Joy's dress. If you're interested and want to see how the group works, drop in at the CKC Sew-Alongs page and you can see us in action and be ready to join us for next month's sew-along! (I like to peek in every now and then, just for fun!)

Half-Off Friday

Yes! I love this skirt! Our Half-Off Friday pattern for this week is Daphne's Bubble Skirt and Top!

I have to tell you that my daughter fell in love with this picture last spring when I was deciding which Easter dress to make for her. Even though I kept showing her all of the dress patterns, she kept wanting to come back to this skirt! When it was time to buy fabric at the store, she cooperated with me on choosing a dress fabric only after picking out the fabric for this beloved skirt. (Am I the only mom who would bribe her daughter with a skirt in order to make her a dress? Hmm.)  I tell you all this so you will know for a fact that Daphne's Bubble Skirt is definitely daughter approved and oh-so-trendy right now!  She wears it all the time!

So don't forget - you can get the Daphne's Bubble Skirt pattern on sale today - it's 50% off all day Friday!

And that's a wrap for this week's recap. We hope you're all having a wonderful December and staying warm - and also finding time to sew gifts for your family and friends. It will be worth it when Christmas rolls around.

Let's Create!  ~ Kristen
