Valentine's Contest on the Blog!

It's CONTEST TIME!  We are doing a CKC Valentine's Day Contest right here on the blog!  We're going to do it a little differently than our past contests. Instead of showing us your frilly little cuties all dressed up in CKC, for this contest you get to show off your amazing HUSBAND!  (Or significant other, of course.) 

That's right, we are hooking you up for Valentine's Day this year! He may or may not bring you chocolates and flowers, but you can definitely make something for him to warm your own heart. I believe that the love we give is felt more strongly that the love we receive, so let's bring it! 



Here are the rules:

1 - Sew a pair of Taylor's Pajama Pants for your husband or significant other.  (If you don't know his size, pay more attention the next time you do his laundry. Haha, totally joking!)  Keep this gift/contest a surprise from him if possible!

2- Wrap the pajama pants and give it to him on Valentine's Day. This step is required! 

3 - Convince him to pose for a picture wearing his Taylor's pants. It is okay to crop his head out of the photo if he is more comfortable with it that way.  See the pic above?  Totally acceptable. (Important note - It's okay to beg and bribe, but please promise us you won't be heartbroken if he won't pose. Some husbands are like that. We can love them anyway.)

4 - Email your photos to kristen@createkidscouture.com by Sunday, February 16 at 10 pm EST.  (We would also love for you to post your photos to the CKC fan page and/or sewing group but that is not required for entry.)


The winner will be posted here on the BLOG on Monday, February 17, and will receive 3 free CKC patterns of your choice! Two runners-up will receive 1 free pattern. Your husbands will be happy about that!  


If you aren't sure what kind of fabric to get for your husband's pajamas, pay attention to what he normally chooses for himself. Maybe he likes solid colors. Or patterns like stripes or checkers.  My husband likes pajamas with his favorite sports teams on them. (You'd be surprised what you can find online! You have two weeks!) And of course there are always the husbands out there who are still young at heart even though they put on a macho face.  For ALL the men in our lives I would like to recommend some of the following fabrics: 



You can't go wrong with race cars! 



How fun is this?! 



Superheroes!  I mean really, you can't tell me he wouldn't love superheroes, especially if there are kids in the house.  




And superheroes on BLUE.  Just check out that little batman at the bottom. I think I'm in love. 


Checkers are fun but not TOO fun, for that kind of guy. 


I love the colors in this one. 


And the expressions on these guys. So much fun!

That's just a few ideas. I found these fabrics in Katie's Quilt Shop, one of our blog sponsors. There are also more simple prints to browse. Katie is offering a 10% discount using the code LOVECKC at checkout. 

Of course you can use any fabric you choose for the contest. We can't wait to see what you come up with! And if you need it again, here is the link for Taylor's Adult Pajama Pants.
