Look what CRD has tested and reviewed for Create Kids Couture and they are on SALE!!!

I have been one busy seamstress here at CRD! I have tested 4 more patterns for Create Kids Couture and they ALL released today with sale pricing until 6/26/2014 at 7pm! YAY!!!

First up for review is Baby Conner's Diaper Cover Set.

This pattern is a perfect diaper cover set for boys newborn up to 24 months!

This diaper cover set is so cute being used as an outfit for a cake smash session to celebrate that first or second birthday.
  Also make the simple version of the diaper cover and bow tie or a cute outfit for a hot summery day. Add back pockets and suspenders to dress it up a little more!  

Kristen, with Create Kids Couture, is the designer for this pattern. Her directions are always spot on and easy to follow. With great pics to show you the way. Of course you can always get support for making this outfit from Create Kids Couture Facebook page.

Now time for the baby girls!

Harper's ruffled Pillowcase Dress/Top and Emma's Ruffled Butt Bloomers . These are 2 separate patterns but they are so cute paired together and of course they are on sale until 6/26/2014 at 7pm! 

Harper's Ruffled Pillowcase Dress or Top will quickly become a favorite of yours because it is such a fast and easy sew! You can use quilting cottons, as I did, linens, broadcloths and corduroys. Put a short or long sleeve tee on underneath for cooler weather. 

Emma's Ruffled Butt Bloomers are also a quick easy sew! I love 3 layers of ruffles on little girls behinds but I am not a big fan of gathering 3 separate rows of ruffles! Katie,designer of this pattern, has made sewing the 3 layers of ruffles so fast! She has layered the 3 layers together so you only have to gather once!!!! Let me tell you Katie is one smart cookie in my book. :) For the legs you can use elastic or shirring. I love did I say I LOVE shirring! I really do!  If you have not tired shirring you need to but don't wait and put it on your bucket list you need to do it now!!!

Now for the girly and cute Jaimesyn Ruffled Bottom Romper!

Jaimesyn is an adorable fully lined 4 layered ruffled romper, with flutter sleeves and a cute back bow. Since it is completely lined there are no exposed seams! You can choose to sew the crotch opening shut or use snaps as I did. I used KAM snaps.

Harper, Emma and Jaimesyn's  come in newborn to 24 months size.

The sky is the limit with all of these patterns! Let your imagination run wild! :)

(The following info is directly from Create Kids Couture webpage.)

 Thorough, uncomplicated step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photos that allow you to follow along with ease from start to finish.
 Computer drawn pattern pieces you can print over and over again; no more patterns that rip or tear! 

 Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape. You will only receive pattern pieces for curved portions of the garment, and you will follow the cutting chart for the remaining pieces. 

If you would like to see an example of our style and try it for free, please download our free sample pattern HERE.

Of course as always Cranberry Ridge Design is more than happy to sew up something special for your sweetheart. Feel free to email me!

Hope to see you for the next pattern test and review!

Thanks to all the great models! Logan, Owen, Capri and Jenna!

Handmaiden's Cottage releases Cottage Peasant Top Pattern with a Great Price!

The Handmaiden's Cottage has released the Cottage Peasant Top today with intro pricing! You can buy this PDF instant download pattern for only $3.50!  Wow, a pattern from a well known designer for only $3.50 forever! It comes in sizes 2T-girls size 10.

Lynn, the designer of Handmaiden's Cottage has designed this wonderful pattern to be layered under dresses or worn alone. It can be worn under the Tea Party Dress or under the Picnic Petticoat. I was chosen to test the top length.

This wonderful pattern is a fast and easy sew. It is an instant download printable PDF pattern. The pattern has very detailed step by step instructions with clear color photos. As always, Lynn gives different options for different sewing techniques. I did rolled hems on the bottom ruffle, sleeves and top of the bodice with a coordinating thread. 1/4 elastic is used in the neckline, waist, and sleeves. Instead of buying bias tape I made my own casing for the sleeves and neckline. For the waistline you stitch down the seam allowance for the casing. Fabric requirements are only 7/8-1 1/3 yard! 

Lynn can reached by email, Facebook, or convos though her Etsy store. Please show Lynn some love by joining her FB group and making her Etsy store a favorite! Also, she would love if you followed her on her blog!

As always, Cranberry Ridge Design is happy to create a one of a kind design for your sweetheart! I can be reached at this email!

Till next testing!
