Spring is here! Hooray! We finished off the winter with some fun releases, contests, and sales. Let's review everything that happened this week and make sure you didn't miss any of it.
Our first new release this week was the ever-popular Poppy's Peekaboo Dress - now in Tweens! With its beautiful tie-back straps and unique pick-up skirt, your tween is sure to love her new Poppy's. It's perfect for Easter!
Another gorgeous Easter dress option is our newly released Bethany's Fancy Party Dress for Tweens. You can make it with a chiffon overlay or leave it simple with cotton. Whichever she prefers, it will turn out to be so pretty on her this spring.
Just last night we released this fun little romper. Rebecca's Knit Romper is great for play time and so comfortable to run around in and wear to the park. It is on sale for 30% off for the first 24 hours so make sure you purchase it before the sale ends today! It is sure to be a staple for your little one this summer.
On the Blog
As we all know, Monday was St. Patrick's Day and the perfect opportunity to dress up our little ones in green from head to toe. Many of you shared holiday photos of your kiddos in the CKC Patterns Group and we posted some of our favorites on the blog on Monday. (We also gave a mini sneak peek of an upcoming boys' pattern. Ssshhh.)
For How-To Tuesday, we posted a tutorial on how to make an easy lanyard for your keys using scraps of fabric. No more losing those keys! I love that we can now make a lanyard that is completely unique.
Did you know that sewing isn't just for fabric? It's actually a popular way to embellish handmade cards as well! We gave you all the tips and tricks on how to get started and you will be making super cute cards in no time!
Not only that, but on Thursday we announced this month's mini contest on the blog, which is to make a matching card for any CKC pattern you sew! The top three winners will earn a free pattern of their choice, so be sure to read all the rules here so you can enter and win! This mini contest only lasts one week.
Look who just turned five! Here is Charlotte and her doll in their matching Genevieve's. To celebrate Charlotte's birthday we're having a surprise sale! You can find the details on our 2014 calendar here for this weekend, and we will also be announcing it on our Instagram here. You definitely don't want to miss out on this birthday celebration!
Our Half-Off Friday pattern this week is Mia's Reverse Knot Twirly Dress! Mia's has straps that tie in back and a beautiful stripwork skirt over another skirt of ruffles! Your little girl will love twirling in this dress. Its also great for mom because the loose style of bodice allows it to stretch through all the seasons as your daughter grows. It will be perfect for this spring and summer, and on into the fall with layers! And the best part is that Mia's is on sale for 50% off all day Friday! Here are some more photos to help you fall in love with Mia's:
Isn't it beautiful?! Be sure to grab it now and remember that it combines with our other patterns and sales for a tiered pricing discount! Even better!
We hope you all have a wonderful first week of spring. Thanks for being such great fans.
