This is the week when I should be saying, "Yay, it's Autumn now and I love Autumn!" Well, that's how my week started, but right now there's a wind storm raging outside and it hasn't stopped raining for days. So if you happen to be enjoying some warm/cool Fall weather this weekend, will you send some my way, please? At least everything is in control indoors, though! We have lots of great new styles for you to sew up, plus some big announcements if you want to be a part of the CKC scene! Let's take a look.
Zarriah's all knit pattern has the versatility to meet all your needs. Zarriah's brings both a top and a dress option to the table! As a dress, you can choose the full, flirty underskirt, or the sleek, classic, professional look with the slim fit version. We also adore the subtle, feminine details in this bodice. Look at the pretty ruffles and bow!
This week we also released two pageant wear designs. Katherine's is a double princess seam illusion sweetheart neckline with corset back. It includes full instructions for creating your own corset or installing a pre-made corset kit. Stunning!
The second new pageant pattern is Ember's. It is a sewn tutu in three different styles (pancake, face, and romantic). Katherine's and Ember's are the perfect pair for a pageant face dress. Also great for weddings, baptisms and first communion. You can even use them to create something amazing for Halloween!
Then for a more everyday wear dress, Diana's Vintage Dress is our take on a classic look that your little girl fall in love with at first sight! It features so many options and it will surely be a favorite for this holiday season. Thanksgiving is a mere 8 weeks away and Christmas is just 5 weeks after that! Stay ahead of the holidays this year with Diana's!
Have you ever wanted to make your kids their very own tee-pee? Look no further! Our new Sunnie's pattern is perfect for you! The doll size is great for a newborn photo prop or even a cool dog bed. The kid version is an awesome addition to your kid’s bedroom or play room for a nice reading nook or a fun hideout! Did we mention that Christmas isn't that far away? Talk about a great Christmas present...
We have added a cool teepee themed cut file to the site as well! It includes a multilayer design and pdf instructions on using the layers for Cricut and Silhouette. If you have a cutting machine that you just haven't got around to using yet, don't wait any longer! We can walk you through the process and get you crafting in no time!
Diana's, Sunnie's, and the Teepee cut file are all 30% off through Sunday night!
