Welcome to our Friday Recap! We hope you enjoy reading about all that we've been up to at CKC this week.
This week we released three new doll patterns! Here we have Noel's Patchwork Dress on the left. On the top right is Coco's Pettiskirt with a new Infinity Scarf. And on the bottom right is Caroline's Princess Top paired with Bonnie's Princess Pants as a set. Remember that all of our doll patterns come with 15" and 18" measurements, which fit most dolls and even some stuffed animals!
On the Blog
This week on the blog we had our monthly mash-up from Deborah Koch at Ma Cherie Kids. Deborah made this gorgeous dress by adapting Katy's Double Layer Dress and Poppy's Peekaboo Dress. You can read more about it and see close-ups on the blog post here.
On Tuesday we posted a free tutorial to make this CKC Ruffle Pillowcase. It will make a perfect gift or even a fun addition to your own room! You can download the free pattern for our Ruffle Pillowcase here.
To go along with our new doll patterns released this week, we gave a helpful tutorial on how to add a velcro opening to the back of your doll peasant dresses and tops. Now our doll patterns are even more versatile! You can find the velcro tutorial here.
We are anticipating the launch of our NEW website very soon (if all goes well) and we want you to please make sure that you have saved all of your purchased patterns! You will no longer have access to your old account once the new website is up. We highly recommend dropbox.com as a great way to save your patterns and other documents. We're excited for you to see our new website!
In other news, our Sew-Along for January begins today! If you would like to join in and make your own Cosette's Knit and Woven Dress in a group setting, come on over to the CKC Sew-Alongs page. We do a few steps each day, answer any questions you may have, and by the end we will each have a pretty dress. And you may even win a prize!
Look at this adorable outfit, perfect for Valentine's Day! Wouldn't you love to make one just like it?! We have chosen these two patterns to be on sale for this week's Half-Off Friday! This means that for today only you can purchase Kiki's Extra Ruffled Top and Kara's Triple Ruffle Pants for 50% off! You can buy just one or the other - but why not get both? Together they will help you create a super sweet outfit to remember. Happy Friday!
That's all for this week's recap. Thanks for being our sewing buddies.
