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.
I love to mix and match fabrics and wanted to create a pillow cover that's easy to make but with a difference.
You can choose bright fun designs or soft pale colours like the baby blue one I made for a more subtle look. I love the way that the facing just peeps out under the buttons adding a splash of colour or contrast to the pillow.
Each time you combine two different fabrics and buttons you will get a completely different look.
The tutorial will show even a beginner how to create this simple design and includes lots of close up photographs and simple to follow instructions to help you every step of the way. There are no zips or difficult seams.
The sewing guide includes a printable template to help you position the buttonholes.
