Did you know Cwtch (pronounced kutch) is Welsh for hug?
I’m SO excited to be able to share my first pattern with you all! I’ve been working away on something I thought about in autumn last year. I made the beautiful cushion, posted it on Instagram and its been sitting on my sofa ever since. I logged on to Instagram one day and someone had asked me for the pattern, 6 months later! This lead me down the garden path of pattern designing.
You’ll be thrilled to know this pattern is beginner friendly and 100% FREE here on my blog but if you do wish to support me you can purchase a PDF copy from my Etsy shop HERE
Lets get started!
