Less than a week until Thanksgiving! I love the holidays so much; I can hardly stand it! That's not to say that I have all of our stuff prepared for it. Are you still sewing things up for Thanksgiving, or are you ahead of the game and already moving on to the next holidays? We have a poll going on in our patterns group and it's so fun to see all the answers! You'll have to drop in on it at some point if you haven't already so we can get your vote too! In the meantime, we have some great projects to show you here in our Weekly Wound Up, plus some BIG news about our *early* Black Friday sale! (Hint: It's not even going to be on a Friday.) Here goes!
Just when you thought joggers couldn’t get any trendier, along comes Isaac’s Dino & Roo Pants for Boys and Babies! Dino spikes on the legs and a full-width kangaroo pocket in front? Yes, please! Your little guy will not want to take these off, and he’s guaranteed to get compliments everywhere he goes! The fit is spot-on, with a comfy knit waistband and optional drawstring, seams at the sides of the legs rather than the center of the pants, separate rise for front and back with a lower jogger-style inseam, plus slimmed legs and comfy leg bands at the bottom. You can make Isaac’s using just the kangaroo pocket, or just the dino spikes, or both together, or even leave all the options off for a basic pair of joggers. Your trendy guy can pair these with his favorite hoodie, muscle tee, or t-shirt and be ready for anything!
We also have a pretty new dress that's perfect for pageants and holidays! Clementine's features options for a collar, suspenders with or without flutters, and a sash with or without a ruffle. It can be made as a top or a dress, and the skirt portion can be made as a circle skirt or a gathered skirt! Then you can mix and match the hem options and finish with bias tape or lace! This fitted bodice buttons up he back making it easy to put on and have a great fit. With so many options you'll be ready for Christmas in no time, or sewing your way to the perfect casual wear or OOC for your next pageant.
We also have two new Cut File designs perfect for this upcoming week! Are you ready for Black Friday?! To some it is the challenge you wait all year; to others, a family tradition. No matter why you do it, do it with style. Whether its casual coffee sipping browsing or all out "buy them all" rage, you're sure to clear a path to your hot ticket item with these fun designs.
