It seems that we have moved on from the Winter Wonderland of December and on into the muddy, foggy haze of January. The harsh weather used to get me down and dreary, but now I find it to be even more of a reason to stay inside and sew! I think that's the message that nature is trying to send us, don't you?
And we certainly have managed to get a lot done around CKC this week. Here's a little review for you as we finish it off with our Weekly Wound Up.
On Monday we officially launched our CKC Crochet line by releasing four fabulous crochet patterns all at once! First is Clara's Ruffle Capelet, a darling accessory to wear with your girl's CKC outfits. Look at those ruffles! The next pattern is Beatrice's Bubble Cowl that is quick to work up and can be made with or without the bubbles. Next is Maura's Slouchy Hat, an easy and stunning hat that also includes the Rosette accent. Last of all is Isabelle's Princess Wig, which is a bun-style hat pattern and a must-have finishing accent for all your favorite princesses!
This week we introduced another pretty dress for your girl, Samantha's Knotted Party Dress! Look at those gorgeous bows detailing the front bodice! They're so sweet for her Valentine's Day parties coming up. Samantha features a fitted bodice, button back closure, unique sleeve details, and a skirt with box pleats. If you have been wanting to learn to sew buttons, Samantha's is a great place to start!
Yesterday we released TWO zip hoodies for both boys and girls, both knit and woven! Raven's Ruffled Zip Hoodie is made of comfy knit and has two adorable ruffle options, multiple sleeve options, and is fully lined. Perfect for all the little ladies in your life! Damian's Woven Zip Hoodie can be made entirely of wovens (hooray!) and it has that cool boy pocket that is sure to be a hit with your little guys.
You know you're going to want both of these amazing hoodie patterns and they can even be mashed together for a perfect woven/knit/ruffle combo if you'd like! Be sure to get both Raven's and Damian's for 30% off today!
