How To Apply Horsehair Braid Trim

Oh the dreamy flowing twirl of a circle skirt!  It is one of my favorite design features, and nothing adds that extra wow factor like horsehair braid trim. I have been seeing it on some beautiful designs, and I just had to try it.

Free Tutorial ❤️ Heart Pocket

February is around the corner, and my holiday crafting heart was craving a sweet accessory to my daughter's new simple Hattie's Dress pictured above. I've had this vintage candy heart stamps fabric for a while, and knew it would be a fun touch. Hattie's is one of my all-time favorite CKC Patterns, and what could be better than Hattie's with a pocket?  Let's make it a heart pocket!

How to Make an Opening for Nickolas' Drop-Bottom PJ's

Did you see our brand new Nickolas' Drop-Bottom PJ's pattern?  It's super adorable for both babies and kids.  My own older kiddos are even requesting them in adult sizes! 

 We love the traditional drop bottom kiddo look that makes these PJ's impossible to resist a giggle.  When we first designed Nickolas' PJ's, the drop bottom was just a faux flap to look cute.  As we got close to release, however, some of our testers begged to make the panel functional for those perfect photo ops.  So although you can still make the PJ's the easier faux panel way (and some kids may prefer it), today's blog post gives you a new option for Nickolas:

A functional drop-bottom panel!   My little guy loves this version.

 The panel can fasten up with either buttons or snaps, so if you're new to either don't worry because the pattern includes tips and video blog posts to help out beginners.

Let's get started with our tutorial!
