Hello, all! You would think that I have written enough of these intros that I could maybe avoid talking about... the weather. But nope, this week the weather it is. Would you believe that today I have seen snow, wind, hail, sun shining through the rain, and even a big ol' giant rainbow? It was so big and bright that the kids and I just stared at it cutting through the gray clouds. Craziest thing. Anyway, um, how's the weather where you are? Yeah? I think maybe we should talk about CKC now! We have some great new patterns for you, a few fun announcements, and of course our new weekend sales. Here goes!
Our first new release this week is for the boys! Introducing Declan's Side Panel Tab Pants!
If you’ve been searching for a trendy new look for your little guy, these pants are perfect for him! Declan’s pattern features tabs along the sides of the pants for a super-cool yet no-fuss style your kiddo will love! They can be made with just about any fabric you choose: cotton, denim, khaki, corduroy; you name it. The pants have a flat front with elastic in back, optional pockets in front and back, and cool matching tabs on the back pockets. Or of course you can make the simple version if you choose. Declan’s are constructed with separate pieces for front and back, creating a comfy and tailored fit that will make your little man look super sharp, no matter what top he pairs with them!
Then we also have two incredible new women’s patterns for you this week! Vixen is a fun open back top that has an optional under layer! Use lightweight knit, chiffon or lace for the under layer, for a cool fun shirt this summer. Urlotte is a super cool raglan top with a pleated lower back that can be done in many different types of fabrics! Both of these patterns are available in XS-XL and are on sale for 30% off through the weekend! Don’t miss out on these fun and stylish patterns!
And that's not all! This week we also released a bunch of new embroidery designs! Shown here are In-The-Hoop Butterflies, In-The-Hoop Burlap Banner, an applique Poodle Puppy, and an Arrow Little Miracle Design. Be sure to check out these and many more designs in our embroidery department!
On the Blog
If you are somewhat new to sewing, you may have questions about how to "finish" your seams. Or even if you've been sewing for awhile, you might want to learn some new techniques. Either way, we have a helpful new blog post that covers the pros and cons of various finishing methods. We even put them to the laundry test, to see which ones hold up best! Come check it out!

Eleanor's Pintuck Dress and Top pairs classic lines with sweet simplicity! With sleeveless, short, and long sleeve options available, you'll find you can use Eleanor's year round.

Cassie’s Side Swept High Low Dress for Tweens features a cute sweetheart bodice and a button back bodice that can be done with a full back or a fun heart cut out! This dress features three skirt layer options, including a trendy side swept high low circle skirt and an optional petti. This design is so fun your tween will love it for anything from church to those special dances in their junior high years. Cassie's is perfect with satin and chiffon fabrics for a special occasion dress, and can also be done in quilter’s cottons for a less formal look. Be sure to grab Cassie's while it's half off!
Our final sale pattern for the weekend is Baby David's Knit Shirt and Footed Pants Set!
This adorable set is just what your baby needs for everyday wear and comfy fun! Baby David’s has a knit top with short or long sleeves, as well as comfy knit pants that have the feet built right in. You can use all one knit for a matching pajama set, or mix and match different knit fabrics and panels for a daywear outfit. And for the older babies who are starting to walk, you can even use non-slip fabric on the soles. Once you make one set, you’re going to want to make many more! Plus, it makes a great baby gift. Be sure to grab Baby David's pattern while it's 50% off!
What a productive week we've had! It sounds like we all, yourself included, deserve to have a pretty awesome weekend. Thanks for being such great customers and sewing friends!
