Happy Valentine's Day! After a quick week of preparations, the holiday is here! My kids have their valentines all ready to take to school with them and excitement built up for their class parties. I still need to hurry and finish my husband's gift! No matter how you choose to celebrate today we hope you know how much we love you, our CKC fans!
We are SO excited to introduce the first of many boy patterns coming to CKC!!! On Monday we released Toby's Hooded T-Shirt for BOYS! You and your boy will both love this hooded tee! It is super comfy for them to wear and truly easy for you to make. Toby's Hooded T-Shirt features two sleeve length options, a nice roomy hood, and of course the signature hoodie pocket in front. It is designed for stretchy knit fabric and you can even up-cycle used t-shirts. It will quickly become your boy's favorite shirt!
This week we released Bethany's Fancy Party Dress, which features dainty flutter sleeves and three different bodice and skirt combinations! Whether you want the more simple style or the breathtaking chiffon skirt, your little girl will love her new dress.
On Wednesday we released two new doll patterns! The first two pictures show Cheyenne's Perfect Party Dress in the fancy version with pickups and also in the simple version with a corset.
The far right photo shows our second doll release, which is actually a 3-pack, all in one pattern! This is Kadence's and Genevieve's Knot Tops with Nicolette's Pants and Capris. Wow, what a sweet bundle to please your little girl!
On Thursday we released Keria's All Knit Dress. It features three tiers for the skirt, three different sleeve length options, and even some circle bell sleeves if you choose. Our testers are raving about how quickly this dress goes together and their little models also love how comfortable it is. And Keria's is still on sale 30% off for a few more hours!
Last but not least, TODAY we are releasing Teronia's Reversible Sweetheart Apron, featuring a sweetheart neckline, fully reversible design, and lots of fun embellishments to use on either side of the apron. This pattern is available in Girl's Sizes, Tweens' Sizes, and Women's Sizes, and they are all 30% off for today only! Now you can make a matching set of aprons for all the girls in your family!
On the Blog
This week on the blog Deborah Koch from Ma Cherie Kids created this beautiful dress by mashing up two of our favorite twirly dress patterns. You can see more pictures and read the details on the Monthly Mashup Blog here.
On Tuesday we gave a free tutorial on how to make these adorable fabric Matching Game Cards. They are cute, fun, and so easy to make!
I love this princess dress! On Wednesday we had a guest tutorial from Aimee Walker of Momma Made Clothing, who showed us step-by-step how to make the pleated princess sleeves in this picture. Aren't they perfect?
Last of all, on Thursday we shared some Fun Facts about Fabric with you. It's a quick and entertaining read and you may even learn something new to share with your friends!
Don't forget we have our Valentine's for Him contest going on here on the blog! It's not too late to enter. You just need to sew up a pair of Taylor's pajama pants for your husband, present them to him as a gift, and then submit a picture to us by Sunday night. (See, there's plenty of time!) For all the details you can read more about the Valentine's Day Contest here on the blog.
Thank you for your wonderful entries into our Valentine's Day Sweetheart Contest! We can all see the cute sweetheart outfits here and the winners will be announced sometime today!
Yesterday we began a new pattern in our Sew-Along Group. We are now working on Marissa's Perfect Peasant Dress in any size. If you are not familiar with the group, here's a little sneak into how the Sew-Along Group works:
Yes, we're that organized and it's really fun to work on it together! There will even be prizes at the end. The Marissa's Sew-Along will end on Tuesday the 18th and then we'll start into the next Sew-Along. The new pattern we have chosen has not been announced yet but if you're interested, you may want to grab the pattern that we have in our HOF sale today. (Yes, that was a hint.)
Today is a special day! Do you know what it is? If you are one of our fans of CKC who have printed off our special Monthly Calendar for 2014 then you probably already know! (We have secret sales marked on there!) Not only is today Valentine's Day, but it is also a special little girl's birthday!
