Weekly Wound Up

Summer is in full swing now, and wow do we have some adorable new designs coming your way! If you didn't see our amazing Boho releases from yesterday, you're in for a treat.  We also have our weekend sale and a new contest to announce. Let's get rolling! 

New Releases

For starters, we have a bunch of new embroidery designs this week, including two freebies! First is a number applique set (0 to 9) with two finishing stitches included: satin and dot. These are perfect for birthday outfits. There are two new decorative/cross stitch designs: a patriotic cross stitch heart flag design to take your 4th of July projects to the next level and a Geometric Chevron design. Also, we have several fun wording designs including: Glamping, Happy Camper, Happy Glamper, I don't Sweat I Sparkle, and I Heart Dance. Last, there is a sweet whimsical flower applique. All designs come in 3 sizes fitting hoops sized 4x4, 5x7 and 6x10. All applique designs also include specially sized SVG files which allow you to cut your applique fabric on a cutter machine, like a Silhouette Cameo or Cricut.

We have new shorts for the girls, yay! Greer's Scallop Pocket Shorts are a new staple for your daughter's summer wardrobe! She will love the pockets for all her treasures and you'll love the unique scallop detail. The flat front and elastic back waistband provides a clean, classic, comfy fit! 

How amazing is this patriotic dress?!  Harlyn's Knit Star Dress has a comfortable fitted bodice and a fun, unique hem line on a circle skirt. You can mix and match your knits to create everything from beautiful to funky! This adorable, simple dress sews up so quickly she'll have a closet full of Harlyn's in no time! 

Remember those new Boho releases I mentioned? Here they are!  Each design is so gorgeous in person and they're all 30% off this weekend.  

First up is Leela’s Little One Piece. A curved neckline and full back coverage just add to the unique style. You choose either elastic casing for the back or shirring. The bottoms feature a trendy look with trim of your choice. Leela's is available in babies and girls 2T-14.

Next is Gypsy’s Boho Dress and Top. Your girl will love the fun “sleeves” and flowy skirt. The comfort of knit on the inside layer and stylish lace overlay with trim make this dress or top unique in your little one’s wardrobe. Gypsy's is available in babies and girls 2T-14.

Baby Roma’s Romper features a curved neckline, lace appliqué option, full open back, and elastic for growing room. Plus it has a snap crotch that makes diaper changes a breeze!

Last of all, we have Tatiana’s Trumpet Sleeve Dress and Top. This pretty little dress and top is a simple design that will be perfect for those cute summer sandals and tall fall boots. A wide neckline and scoop back just add to the unique style! The sleeves feature a trendy look with trim and beautiful trumpet piece. The skirt features trim as well. Tatiana's is available in Babies, Girls, and Women’s XXS-5XL. 

Don't forget that all of these Boho patterns are 30% off this weekend!

On the Blog

A couple weeks ago we had a fun contest in our group where we asked our fans to turn regular patterns into crop tops. They turned out so amazing! Come to the blog to see what our creative customers all came up with and get a few tips so you can join in on the fun now too.

Have you been eyeing our adorable Cut Files but aren't sure which cutting machine you want? This week we had a blog post (and video) that compares the features of the two leading cutting machines, to help you decide which one is perfect for you!

Nothing says "Summertime" sweeter than a little girl in a precious bonnet! This week we had Raeanne Kufeke from BeforeNafter designs with us on the CKC blog to share this free {adorable} bonnet pattern!


It's a new month and that means a new set of Monthly Mixups! For June we have six great patterns put together in FOUR different size ranges! Choose from Kids, Tweens, Adult, and Plus sizes (or all of them of course). The six patterns you will get in each size bundle are Hunter, Heidi, Chantelle, Uma, Zelda, and Nevaeh. These six patterns would normally add up to $46, but with the June Monthly Mixup you can get them all for just $18. That's pretty much a steal! We can't wait to see what you make with all these cute and comfy styles!

This coming Monday, June 20, we have a new sew-along starting!  We will be making Shiloh's Shortalls and you can come get in on the fun! First you can grab Shiloh's on sale and then join our CKC Sew-Alongs group where it all takes place. We will do a few steps each day according to our schedule, and for each day completed you even have a chance to win prizes! It's a bunch of fun so come join in. 

It's time for our second Annual #CKCDaddySewOff! We know how proud our kids are wearing homemade outfits by mommy, grandma, etc., but now we want them to rock something made by daddy! Please post a photo of your man sewing his CKC garment and a photo of the finished garment on the CKC Fan page wall (click here). Tag CKC and label it #ckcdaddysewoff. Entries are due by next Thursday, June 23, at midnight est. We will have one randomly-chosen grand prize winner of a $100 gift card to Amazon! We are also going to be having check-ins between now and then, where you might be selected to win a pattern for participation. Remind your man that the sewing machine is a power tool, and get started!


This weekend we have Tabitha's Knit dress and Top on sale for 50% off in all sizes!  This comfy dress is perfect for play clothes and also really sweet for wearing out. Designed with a simple knit bodice and woven skirt, we include measurements for both a top length and a dress length. It has a bunch of different options too - short sleeve or sleeveless, bodice ruffle or plain, and skirt with trim band, ruffle, or plain. You can easily pair it with shorts or leggings for the perfect summer look! Tabitha's is available in Doll, Baby, Girl, and Tween sizes, so be sure to grab all the ones you'll need for 50% off! 

The second pattern we have for half price this weekend is Amber's Simple Halter Top and Dress. This pattern is available in Doll, Girl, Tween, Women, and even Plus sizes! Amber's simple design with its fitted bodice and halter-neck tie will be a perfect addition to any spring, summer, or fall outfit! Amber's is a quick sew that showcases a favorite fabric or could easily be used for play with less worry about your daughter's "fancy" clothes getting ruined. But don't just write off this dress as "play clothes"; you can use cottons, linens, and laces to transform this dress to a beautiful special occasion dress! Here's your chance to get Amber's in all sizes for 50% off!

As you shop the weekend sales and check out our new releases, don't forget about our automatic tiered pricing; the more you buy the more you save!

That finished up our Weekly Wound Up for now. We hope you have a wonderful weekend and a very happy Father's Day!  

Let's Create! ~ Kristen
