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.
With this sewing guide you will learn how to make a simple square pillow (cushion) cover with a zipped fastening.
There are two methods to choose from, basic and concealed. The first half of the guide will show you how to insert a simple zip, this method is suitable for beginners who have basic sewing machine skills. The second half will show you how to insert a concealed zip for those of you who want to have a more professional finish.
The guide is 21 pages long and there are over 40 close up photographs with lots of plain simple text to help you along the way.
