Weekly Wound Up

Today we have a bunch of Father's Day stuff to talk about but first I want to make it clear (before anybody panics) that Father's Day is NOT this weekend. It is next weekend. But because we all want to plan ahead and have awesome handmade gifts ready, we're going to focus a little on the men right now!  That includes a sale too, so definitely stay tuned.

New Releases

Do you want the option to make woven tops for your kiddo without worrying about collars or buttonholes? So do we! Introducing Slate's Woven Henley-Style Tunic!  This trendy top is going to be a staple in your little guy’s closet! Slate’s features a relaxed tunic fit, an open placket that doesn’t require buttons or snaps (although you can use them if you choose), an easy-sew/easy-wear neck binding, sleeves in both long and short lengths, and those cool sleeve tabs to finish off the look. This top is comfy and classy at the same time, allowing him to wear it at the playground or even dressed up for a nice day out. Be sure to flip through the photo gallery on the website to see all the awesome looks you can get with Slate’s!  It comes in Baby sizes NB-24m and Boy sizes 2T-14. We can't wait to see Slate's on your little guy too!

In dance wear we have two new releases this week! First up is Barbie’s Barre Leggings, available in both Women's and children's sizes!  Aren't they adorable with the bows on the legs?!  They fit and feel amazing too. Barbie's is the perfect addition to your dance wardrobe and sure to get your little one noticed. It includes both the pants and capris lengths. Both size ranges are on sale for 30% off this weekend! 

Our second dance wear pattern that's new is Skipper’s Zipper Top! This one is sure to stand out on stage or in the classroom! Skipper's features a front zipper for easy on & easy off, a super cute neck collar and a strappy FOE back! It's super fun paired with Barbie's (or any other dance wear bottoms) and you can get Skipper's on sale for 30% off through Sunday night! 

On the Blog

Bring on the Father's Day projects!  Our first free pattern is this super handy and husband-requested Dopp Kit for men.  If you're not sure what it is, come find out!  You will love the polished look when you're done and he will find it quite useful, both at home and in his travels. 

Aaaaaand we have another free project for Father's Day!  This one is a staple in my family's summer fun. Plus it's a quick project so you can make one for your man today! (Or for yourself; that's totally cool too.)  Plus, since it is an upcycle you can easily make two at the same time. Husband and father gifts both done, check! 

If those two weren't enough for you (are these men spoiled or what?!), I thought it would be fun to also remind you about our free wallet pattern from awhile back.  Let the kids help pick out the fabric for him and bam, it's a perfect Father's Day gift! 


It's a new month and that means a new set of Monthly Mixups!  For June we have six great patterns put together in FOUR different size ranges! Choose from Kids, Tweens, Adult, and Plus sizes (or all of them of course).  The six patterns you will get in each size bundle are Hunter, Heidi, Chantelle, Uma, Zelda, and Nevaeh.  These six patterns would normally add up to $46, but with the June Monthly Mixup you can get them all for just $18. That's pretty much a steal! We can't wait to see what you make with all these cute and comfy styles!


This weekend is our big Father's Day sale!  We have put ALL men's patterns, plus their matching kids' styles, on sale for 50% off.  Wow! Our men's patterns are somewhat few in number but they are packed with awesomeness!  Choose from Alex's, Brody's, Christopher's, Emmett's, Hunter's, Taylor's, and Zach's. And be sure to grab your kiddos' sizes as well, also marked at half price.  What could be cuter than some matching daddy-and-kids clothes on Father's Day?! 

As you shop all the sales and new releases, don't forget about our automatic tiered pricing. The more you buy the more you save! 

That's it, we're done!  We covered all the new stuff, so now you can go have some fun shopping and doing whatever else it is you have planned for this fabulous weekend. Surely there's some sewing involved too. Thanks for another great week at CKC! 

Let's Create! ~ Kristen
