We just wrapped up one of the biggest sewing weeks of the year and we hope you all survived! And speaking of Wound Up... that describes my kiddos perfectly after all the trick-or-treat candy they've been eating! After all the hours of costume making we put in, now it's time to enjoy (or hide) the spoils! Let's take a break from candy for a minute to review all the good stuff that's happened this week at CKC.
On Monday we released Tween Toby's Hooded T-Shirt. This comfy shirt is an easy sew and your tween boys are sure to love it! Make it out of knit from the store or you can even upcycle some of dad's tees to make a cool new hoodie. Toby's features a roomy hood, front kangaroo pocket, and two sleeve length options with cuffs.
This week we also released Heather's Ruffled Raglan T-Shirt and we know it's going to be a must-have for your Fall list! We took the plain raglan (which is also included in the pattern) and took it up a notch with ruffles and more ruffles, in our classic CKC-style. It will be on sale for 30% off for part of the day today so grab it while it's on sale!

Early in the week we did a tutorial on different techniques for constructing Maleficent-inspired horns for your little cutie's costume! Even though Halloween is over now, you can use the same technique for all kinds of headbands such as reindeer antlers or mouse ears. You will definitely want to save or pin this for later!
Our Monthly Mix-up for October was really popular, as we hoped it would be, so we have decided to offer a Monthly Mix-up bundle for November too! Be watching for that announcement coming up early in the week on our CKC Facebook page!
