It's April! Woohoo! And it's finally starting to feel like Spring around here. Thank goodness too, because we've had twelve baby chicks living in our bathtub for the past two weeks (in their box, of course) and I am more than ready to move them out to their own coop tomorrow! Our sudden snowy weather made them have to overstay their welcome indoors. It wouldn't be so bad, except... well, if you have experienced a newborn baby waking up several times during the night needing you, now relate that to the shrieking of a baby chick in the middle of the night, who keeps jumping out of the box and can't get back in. Seriously?! Over and over again. It's a good thing they're cute. Anyway, I think I'm a *little* off topic here. At CKC we have a lot of other good stuff for Spring coming your way too, so let's take a look!
We have a few new patterns that released this week! To start off, Alexah’s Asymmetrical Dress and Maxi is a princess perfect dress with beautiful twirl. The bodice features side corsets and straps with multiple tying options for creating a unique look. The corset ties and straps can be made out of fabric, ribbons or lace. The side corsets enable this dress to be made without zippers or button enclosures, and give the perfect grow-with-me fit when cinched. There is short knee length or long ruffled maxi version. You can choose to overlay your circle skirt with one or two asymmetrical skirts.The layers are the star of this dress and give you endless opportunities to create gorgeous looks! Alexah's is available in toddler, tween, and doll sizes.
Our second release this week is Blythe's Tiered Tunic, Dress and Maxi in girl and doll sizes! This tiered beauty is perfect for special occasions or just for those days when your little one wants to feel pretty! Tunic, dress and maxi lengths are all included in this pattern. The bodice is perfectly fitted with the choice of back ties or a wide sash. It's on trend with the asymmetrical ruffles that can be made with lace or woven ruffles. Blythe's is on sale for 30% off through Sunday night!
And then, as a super special treat, we decided to release this brand new boys pattern for *free* in our CKC BOYS group! Gabriel's Reversible Shorts are super sturdy and double the fun! They are fully reversible, with all seams enclosed and separate rises for front and back, making them a fabulous fit and lots of fun! To get Gabriel's pattern, simply come join us in our CKC BOYS group to download from the group files for free. It's almost too good to be true-- except it's not!
On the Blog
Also free for the boys (and men) this week, we have a super fun wallet project on the blog! If you have tried making a wallet before using terrible instructions and ended up throwing it in the garbage... yeah, many of us have been there before. Augh. So I am SUPER excited to share our new free pattern with you! It is clearly written, easy-to-follow, flawlessly designed, and basically all-around awesome. Come check it out!
