Winter is in full force around here! We had three snow days this week and I'm pretty sure we wouldn't be able to leave our house right now if we wanted to. Bring on the lazy weekend! Of course "lazy" for us means sewing all the pretty things! And we do have lots of new pretty things to sew. At CKC we started off January strong with a bunch of amazing new patterns. Check them out!
First of all, we just released Vanessa's Ruffled Skirt in both babies and girls sizes! Vanessa's Ruffled Skirt is an adorable addition to any wardrobe. It includes a full skirt with ruffled detailing on the outer layer and a soft, stretchy waistband that allows for easy dressing and a perfect fit. Vanessa's will definitely be a boutique staple and a favorite with your little girl.
Now take a look at Wilhelmina's Transformation Dress! This is any little girls' dream come true! It literally transforms from a short dainty dress with a full skirt into a mind-blowing ball gown. With its many unique options, it is sure to leave all that see it in awe. Options included are faux coat tails, apron, split skirt, bustles, gathered skirt, simple skirt and anything you need to create the perfect dress of your girl's imagination!
Then don't forget to grab our free cut file, "Baby it's Cold Outside"! Bring that sense of holiday nostalgia with lyrics from one of the greatest winter classics. This design features snowflakes to mix and match in any ways you like and our own hand lettered font that you’re sure to only find right here.
And now we're excited to show you our three new baby patterns! These designs have been really popular in our kids' sizing so we know you're going to love them for babies. Plus, all three are on sale this weekend:
Baby Winnie’s features both dress and sweater lengths, kangaroo pocket, and a hood with two optional ear templates to let your creativity soar! This pattern is sure to keep baby warm all winter long. Perfect for girls or boys! Your wardrobe will not be complete without this fabulous pattern. Fleece or stretch fur fabric required.
Bexley’s Beautiful Bubble Romper features a low to mid-thigh length, bubble bottom that has no elastic touching the body to allow for free movement and maximum comfort. It also features a gorgeous bow in back. The front straps have a secret hidden snap fastener inside the front bodice for easy on and off. Bexley's is adorable layered over tights and a long sleeved tee in cold weather too!
The third new baby pattern is Bailey's! These fun bubble shorts are so comfy and the perfect addition to your daughter's wardrobe. Don't be afraid to layer over leggings for the winter! They're great paired with your favorite CKC tops or even a store-bought tee. So super cute!
Don't forget the three new baby patterns are on sale this weekend!
On the Blog
I already mentioned the snow days, but would you believe it's -20 degrees here today? Yes, that's twenty below zero! Brrr. But even if you live in a place that's warm, today's free project on the blog will be lots of fun for you too! The idea is to crochet a row for each day of the year based on the temperature, and then you end up with an awesome blanket! (I could use a few of those right now.)
It's a new month and our new set of Designer Deals are live! Here's your chance to stock up on some of our favorite patterns at half the price. Each of our designers picked a favorite for the list, so you know they're going to be good!
