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 set of sewing guides included all 9 of my pillow sewing guides. Each one has full instructions with simple clear text and lots of close up photographs to show you every step of the way.
