Sewing Patterns We Love

The beginning of a new year is a great time to take up a new hobby, and especially in the dark days of winter it is good for the soul to do something with your hands.

Sewing is part of our identity here at Cluth, and if we were to recommend any new craft for 2021 that would be it. We know its difficult to know where to get started though, so here are some of our favourite beginner sewing patterns. We know you will love them as much as we do!!
