Friday Recap

Where has this month gone?!  Did it go as quickly for you as it did for me?  Even this past week flew by. I suppose that's a good thing since time flies when we're having fun, right?  Well, we have accomplished a lot this week while having fun, and here's just a little of what we've been up to at CKC: 

New Releases

On Monday we released Primrose's for dogs! Look at how cute- just when you think Primrose's can't get any cuter. Layers of ruffles, a corset, Velcro closure, and instructions to add an optional D-ring for a leash. Love, love, love! This pattern is perfect for small- to medium-breed dogs.

Jeanette's Ruffle Back Knit Dress is an all knit dress loaded with ruffles! It has two sleeve length options and features a back full of ruffles that are simply adorable. It's perfect for fall!  

On Wednesday we released SEVEN new baby patterns! We now have Baby Caroline's- a peasant with an open front detail and bodice ruffles. We also have Clarissa's Pants/Capris (featuring a unique bottom ruffle, braided belt), Sabrina's Ruffled Top/Dress (cute bodice ruffle and shirred waist), and Dahlia's Double Flutter sleeve dress. For staples of your sewing repertoire, we now offer Jenna's Lace Ruffle Pants and Marissa's Perfect Peasant in baby sizes. Finally, we have Tabitha's Knit T-shirt dress/top. You can choose tank or sleeves, ruffle skirt, trim band or plain. All baby patterns come in sizes NB - 24 months. 

We had two awesome new releases yesterday! First we have Dawn's Darling Top. This top is so versatile! Wear it over jeans or over your most OTT skirt. It will be a much loved pattern in your collection. We also now have Stacy's Sassy Skirt, which happens to pair perfectly with Dawn's! This skirt is ruffle-icious for sure! Get them both while they are 30% off! Sale ends Friday at 7 pm edt.

And finally - we have a special release we have been saving to do all together today!! These five new patterns are perfect for **school uniforms** and also for fun everyday wear! We have Benjamin's Polo Shirt, Brandi's Ruffled Polo Shirt, Ginny's Academy Jumper, Junie's Everyday Skort, and Kellie's Prep School Skirt. Be sure to follow the links to see all the options that come with these new patterns! They are 30% off until 7PM edt tomorrow.

On the Blog

On Monday's blog we shared some tips on how to do well in your County and State Fairs. Even if you don't have one near you, be sure to read our tips anyway because they will come in handy in a contest that will be announced further down this recap in just a bit!

We have a new free pattern for you this week! Becky's Back-to-School Simple Reversible Skirt is fun for her, quick and easy for you, and it is the perfect way to use that trendy new fabric you just bought!

It's time for you to fall in love with knits! And what better way than to go shopping? On Wednesday's blog post, Kaci takes us right into the store with her and shows us what to look for when shopping for knits. Then after her video we also share links to some of our favorite places to shop for knits online. 

And here's the contest we mentioned earlier!  It's time for you to earn ribbons at the fair! That is, at The 1st Annual CKC Virtual World Fair! That's right! Here's your chance to sew up some CKC cuteness and enter it for judging! There are twelve categories for entries and REAL ribbons will be handed out to the winners! All of the donations go to a great cause -- you can read about on the blog


Did you know that the Create Kids Couture team did the ALS #icebucketchallenge?! We didn't really want to, but we couldn't say no to such a good cause! You gotta watch this video compilation because there are some surprises! We called out other pattern designers, businesses we work/collaborate with, testers, some FANS, and friends. We had fun making the video and laughing at each other's responses. Please watch and enjoy! Send all donations to

It's Half-Off Friday time!  For Tween and Women patterns this week, we have chosen Heidi's Hi-Low Peplum Top to be 50% off all day Friday!  With it's many different sleeve options and unique hi-low design, you and your tween are going to love this comfy and stylish knit top! 

Then for our girls' Half-Off Friday pattern today, we have selected Eloise's Ruffled Leggings! Aren't they cute?! These leggings can be made with all the ruffles shown or even simplified a bit if you'd like. They come with both capris and pants lengths, and both cuts are adorable paired with a frilly dress or even a simple top for school.  Eloise's Ruffled Leggings are on sale for 50% off all day Friday.  Here are some more pictures of Eloise's to show you how adorable they are with any style of top!
