My name is Helen Newton and I am based in Cheshire in the UK. Fabric is my passion and I love to create beautiful yet practical items from designer and vintage fabrics. Lilly*Blossom was formed in 2007 to share my enthusiasm for creating wonderful handmade possessions to be proud of.
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.
This sewing guide is suitable for anyone who has basic experience of using a sewing machine and following simple sewing patterns.
It shows you how to make an envelope style(no zip) cushion cover to fit a 16" or 18" cushion pad. This design uses two coordinating fabrics, one for the main cover and a contrasting one for the flap and ties.
It is so striking when made from a patterned and plain mix in two similar shades but equally you could use floral with dotty, striped with plain or bright contrasting colours. Try out different combinations from your fabric collection!
The sewing guide is 10 pages long and has simple step-by-step instructions with lots of close up photographs to show you how.
