It's a three day weekend for many of us and my family's big plans are... to have no plans! That's my goal. We want a nice, calm weekend of relaxing with the kiddos. I'm sure there will be some outdoor play and board games involved. We started it off with a Friday night movie at home, which turned into me being passed out on the couch. My dear husband was nice enough to put the kids to bed, but now here I am at 3 am sending out our newsletter. I suppose you didn't need to know all that, but there it is. I hope you have big exciting plans for the weekend, or no plans at all like us; whichever you prefer. Let's take a look at everything new going on at CKC!
We started off the week with two brand new baby patterns! First is Baby Halle's Hi-Low romper. It is designed for woven fabric and features a unique hi-low circle skirt over a romper. The crotch has snaps for easy diaper changes. Also, we have Baby Sarah's! It is a knit romper with double ruffle chest and legs, and it comes in capri and pants lengths. Sarah's is so comfy and easy to whip up in no time! It is easy on and off as well.
This week we also took one of our most popular women's patterns and released it in Girl sizes! Kristi's Multi-Sleeve Dress is now available for sizes 2T to 14 girls! This adorable basic shift dress design makes construction a snap and is great for displaying your favorite fabric. Choose from basic, braid, tulip, and twist sleeve options to customize the look for any occasion. Kristi's has a form flattering elastic waistline and a keyhole closure neckline. This fun dress will surely become one of your favorites too!
And finally -- If your little guy or girl has team spirit, this is a BIG week for you with our brand new cheer and sports themed pattern releases! All of the following designs are 30% off through Sunday night:
Jersey’s Cheer Dress is the perfect pattern for your cheerleader! Jersey’s features an optional split bodice with ribbon trim across the front and easy snap back. The short skirt features a ribbon trim as well! Make it a solid bodice and embroider the front! This also makes an adorable Halloween costume. Be sure to check out the listing photos - so many cute little cheerleaders!
And speaking of cute, just take a look at this handsome tyke! If you have a sporty guy or girl, Brock's Letterman Jacket pattern is just what you need! It is fully lined and has all the features you want in a classic letterman jacket: a comfy fit, roomy leather sleeves with knit cuffs, snap-front closures, leather welt pockets, stretch bands at the neck and waist, and of course that awesome varsity letter. Your kiddo will be all set to sport the team colors, and you won’t believe how easy it is to sew up! Brock’s is perfect for jocks, cheerleaders, and fans alike.
Spirit’s Cheer and Parade Skirt has four different options allowing versatility and a custom fit. Choose either A-line or Pleated, then chose regular or fitted. Instructions to add your own color blocking and cheer trim are included! The skirt has optional built in shorts underneath, making this perfect for modesty and those who like to jump, tumble, and kick. This pattern is a must have for everyone, whether they are pageant girls, tomboys, or athletes.
That's not all of our cheer releases yet! We also have some brand new cheer-themed embroidery designs! You can get words/phrases such as "Cheerleader" and "Go Team Go", plus designs for team paw prints, a megaphone, and more! Get them while they're fresh and on sale!
On that note, we also have some great new cheer Cut File designs too! I love this one above and there's also a "No Fear, Just Cheer" design. These designs are great for adding vinyl to outfits, jerseys, uniforms, bags, and accessories!
Whew! That's quite the set of patterns, right? We have been so excited to show them to you. Remember that all these cheer designs are 30% off through Sunday night!
