The Lilly*Blossom collection of sewing and craft guides have been created with beginners in mind. Each one has easy to folllow step-by-step instructions in straight forward language, illustrated with lots of close up photographs.
My aim is to inspire you to create something beautiful and original. No advanced sewing experience is necessary to complete any these projects, just some basic sewing equipment, your favourite fabric and a keenness to have a go! See how easy it is to make a wonderful handmade gift for someone special.
