Weekly Wound Up

My kids are counting down the days until we take a little family trip. It's not much longer to wait but they were saying today how it seems like it will never come. Isn't it funny, how as kids we watched the time drag on while waiting for something fun -- but now, as adults, the time just flies by?!  If your week was at all like mine, you might be wondering how we already got to another Saturday and another Weekly Wound Up! But here we are, and I have a lot of great stuff to share:

New Releases

We kicked off the week by releasing two fabulous crochet patterns! First up is Etta's Pocket Pixie Scarf! Who doesn't love pockets in accessories?? With this pixie-hooded scarf, you can keep little ears AND hands warm! This pattern works up quickly and is sure to be your go-to "on-the-go" accessory! Rosette accent instructions are included! 

And then Mona's Hoodie Cowl is also a MUST HAVE for your winter wardrobe! Worn as cowl or as a hoodie, with it's ribbed and crossover stitch design, Mona's is not only warm--it's a show-stopper! 

 Then on Wednesday we released the much-anticipated Nova's!  Nova's Square Flutter Top and Dress features classic flutter straps, a square neckline, and multiple back tying options. You can do a beautiful criss-cross tie to give a unique look or do a standard buttonhole tie for excellent coverage! Nova also features a fun 4-panel skirt with two sweet and simple ruffles.

Just yesterday we released Winnie's Hooded Dress and Sweatshirt. Winnie's is so warm and comfy! The two different ear options give it many different looks. You can use fleece, minky, and even faux fur as long as it has stretch! Winnie's is on sale for 30% off today! 

On the Blog

If you've been looking for the perfect top pattern for expectant mothers, come see how you can make Evie's as a maternity top! Our step-by-step photos will make it easy!  

Come learn how to add a drawstring to your favorite skirts and shorts patterns! On Tuesday, Shayna Engel showed us how she does it for her bitty girl. 

Whether you are all new to sewing or just want to brush up on your basics, come join us on the blog for two new episodes in our Sewing 101 series: "Threading Your Machine" and "Starting to Sew". We even have this mini printable for you to tape to your machine. (Super helpful when teaching your kids too!) 


After the release of our Nova's pattern on Wednesday, we had a lot of fan asking how to make the flutters longer. We all love more options so we decided to add them right into the pattern!  If you have already purchased Nova's, simply re-download your copy for the updated version that now has more options available! 

 In celebration of our 2-year anniversary of selling doll patterns, every single doll pattern is on sale for only $3.50 each!! Grab as many as you can- tiered pricing is on! This is a great sale that you need to take advantage of -- we don't do big sales like this often! Doll dresses make the perfect present for so many occasions. Sale ends Sunday!

Our #ckcfangirl promotion was such a hit last weekend that we decided to take it right into a new contest!  You can get all the details by watching this video from Shannon and Tiffany: 

Weekend Sales

Amanda's Triple Ruffle Skirt is our first half-off pattern for this weekend!  You can get it in girls, tweens, women's, and even doll's sizes, each for 50% off!  Amanda's fun design features three tiers of ruffles and a comfy elastic waistband. This sassy skirt can be perfect for a variety of occasions, from casual to dressy! 

The second pattern that is half off this weekend is Clover's Criss-Cross Top and Dress!  

 Clover's features that adorable criss-cross bodice and a shirred waist, and it comes with three different options for skirt length: top, sundress, and maxi.  That's a lot of different looks from just one pattern! Be sure to grab your copy of Clover's while it is 50% off, this weekend only! 


 Whew, that was a lot of announcements! I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. I also hope you have a fabulous weekend and enjoy sewing up all your new patterns!

Let's Create! ~ Kristen
